What a whirlwind week it was… on Thursday evening, I packed Vik into his carseat, swung into Boston to grab my friend Beth and together, we all made the journey to Squam so that I could teach my writing class on Friday. We stayed only one night, and I truly missed being able to sink into my time at Squam. By Saturday morning I was on a plane ALONE with the two boys, on my way to Michigan. It was quite a ride…the 1 1/2 hour flight coincided with Vijay’s naptime, and so about halfway through he had a major meltdown before falling asleep on my lap. Poor Vik just laid on the seat next to us during the tantrum, and just as Vijay fell asleep, he started fussing. So there I was with Vijay asleep in my lap and Vik asleep on top of him. A family sandwich. What fun.
Needless to say, we made it to Michigan in one piece (barely) and fell into the waiting arms of my family. We are so happy to be here. Many hands do indeed make light work!
*Off topic completely, I am so excited to share this finished quilt. I managed to handstitch the binding while driving to Vermont, and on my way home from Squam, I found the perfect backdrop to photograph the finished product. This one is for the boys- full of fun colors and patterns!
