We are still working on hiking 2 miles a day. There are lots of woods and two pretty good parks within two miles of us, so that makes for a good destination. The dog really struggles.
Ally should be completely finished with her quilt soon. It was supposed to be a twin size, but I think it will be more like queen. She chose all the fabrics (her favorite things) and has done it all by herself, by hand until the last bit, when I convinced her to use the sewing machine. She is excited about her sewing class at the homeschool co-op, she really has a great teacher. She is also taking a literature class, theater, karate, cross-country, and a science lab class.
