This is the acknowledgement Derek wrote to go with his thesis. It melts my heart every time I read it. :)

Figured I ought to try out this blogger app since I've had it on my phone for months. Currently I'm on the Metro heading in to work to finish my thesis on the 4th of July. Hopefully this truly is my independence day from this paper.
Have to try and add a picture too.

My sister got married this month and we wanted all 15 of the grandchildren to match. So this is where most of my time was spent-- making these 7 dresses and 8 bowties:
In between making all the stuff for the wedding I also found time to make Kylie this Easter dress (Philip wanted in the picture too):
I made two more skirts for the wedding like the ones above and a special white dress for my niece who got baptized the week before my sister's wedding. I also made Timothy new curtains for his bedroom and new curtains for my living room that have jabots and festoons. And lastly, I am half way done with a blessing dress for my sister's new little baby girl. It would be all the way done but Kylie decided she wanted to help. Too bad it wasn't really so helpful. After I had the lace sewed on around the bottom she snipped slits all over in it all across the front. Someone ran off with my seam ripper at some point so that project is on hold for a moment. Did I mention that she cut her bangs while she was helping me too. As I said, there is never a shortage of excitement at our house. :) Oh, and I wanted to add that I sewed all these things in just over two months time. Like I said, my sewing machine and I are really close right now.
