More 5th grade Quilts of Valor

These are more Quilts of Valor from the 5th grade - and of course I forgot the names to these. The quilt above was made by Group 2.
This is Quilt group 4

This is Quilt Group 5


And last but not least Quilt group 1
`
I have to tell you about my afternoon! The Quilts for the Warrior Games are really coming in now (that is a hint to keep checking the blog). So before swim practice I stopped at the post office, and there were so many packages that I filled the trunk and a seat in the car. The boys occupied the other seats.
`
So we drove into the next town, dropped one child off at his swim practice. Went the the recycle center, dropped off all the empty boxes. Reloaded my trunk so all the packages except one fit in there, headed to the bank, talked with my banker friend, got in the car to take the other 2 boys to there swim practice ( in yet another town)
`
And.... the car went Burble burble burble Floop.... and Died.
`
Called the Tow Truck, Called the Mechanic, Called the Hubby.
He drives a small economy car - I drive a Crn Vic - like the size that you could put 2 people in the trunk. I wondered how all the packages, the children, the swim backpacks and myself would fit in his small car.
`
Surprisingly we got ALL of the packages minus one in his trunk. He took the kids to the other swim practice, I waited for the tow truck.
`
He picked up the oldest child, picked up me, headed back to the other town, picked up the other 2 children, and he bought us Taco Bell for dinner.
`
I think I might keep him!
`
My oldest son ( who thinks he will be able to drive soon) thinks that this is a great reason to get a Camero, or S2000, or some other kind of sports car.
`
He might be sad that the repair bill might possibly be less than a new car. Shall I disappoint him now or later? (giggle)
`
Off to take more pictures!!

Alycia - I love all the quilts and the quilty goings on but I also love hearing about your completely 'normal life'. I've had kids and breakdowns and a husband who was always there for us and I love your sharing that with us! Oh yeah - I kept him as well!
