Ryder's Camp Opah and Omy

Boy, how time can fly. This could have been posted a week ago, but it's been so busy around here that I didn't get it done. Ryder came without his brothers to spend a week with us. He knew ahead of time that this wasn't going to be a week of play, but rather that he would be involved with our regular activities. So, he helped in the garden.

He also went flying with me.

His biggest accomplishment I think was that he began and finished a quilt under Marlene's guidance. This wasn't easy. He started with small squares and did all the piece work. Then he pinned it to the backing and did diagonal quilting by machine. Marlene helped, by getting him started and also holding the material from time to time when it got too heavy for him to move through the machine. The finished product was a gift for his new brother, Casey.

It wasn't all work and no play however. During the week we managed a hike along the Molalla River near Canby. He also found some time to make use of the local skate board park.
