Has it Been That Long?

Boy oh boy. I didn't realize how long it had been since I updated. With the troops in school this year my material is just not there. hehehe.

I have to say that not much has been going on these days. Nothing really.. Except working, running the kids to and from, working, general housekeeping (not very well), trying to get the food plan in place for this pregnancy. Then there is the knitting (of course). I even scrap booked a page. (yes Julie, gasp I did a page)

Off the sticks and recently gifted were prayer project gifts. I knit the shawls and scarf for the kids' teacher's and they prayed for them and gifted these lovely items. The teacher wore them all day. They really know the way to a kids heart. The boys could not stop talking about how much the teacher liked them because... " She wore it all day mom." Oh to be a kid again just for a day or two.

The changes of the new school thing is going well. Now if I could just find the laundry fairy's phone number I would be all set.

In the middle of all this running around. We decided to switch doctor's. Talk about a year of change.

I have been enjoying the yarn shop. I feel a little bit like a fish out of water. Learning all the yarn specifics. It is a whole different ball game when someone else needs help with yarn.

Well I should go eat something before I take the kids to school this morning. Can't wait for that extra hour of sleep this weekend.. Yeah!!!

Good Morning Everybody!

Well I have no real excuses for not getting a post up for a bit. I guess I am getting a little tired of the picture-less posts. My USB cord has been located, the picture program on the other hand is not cooperating. So I am trying to get the Picasa thing down and the pictures will ready. Yeah!!

I have officially been training to work part time at our local yarn shop at Knot Another Hat. I feel slightly guilty getting a paycheck to hang out in a room full of yarn and knit in my free time. Talk about lucky. It will be a fun venture.

In knitting news.. I have had to frog a couple projects and they have been knit up into other creations. One project comes with alot of giggles as I imagine my kindergartener's face as he gifts it to his teacher. He had asked me to knit something for his teacher. My thought at first was........(She is nice and because I've known her for a while, seemed worthy of such a treasure) then I began to wonder why she was already so special to him, he would want something HANDKNIT for her. After about a 30 min scene in my head, complete with the judge awarding her (the teacher) custody of her new little boy. I came to my senses and started a Stole which became a prayer shawl instead. As I was working on it. My little guy began to take extra care in the way he dressed (dress shirt and tie). This is not his normal attire so I told him he didn't NEED to dress up for school. To which I get.
"Moooomm! It's okay I want to." At this point my interest was beyond piqued. When we arrived at school to find another little guy all spiffed up I knew this teacher must be something special.
The only problem was the other little guy had a candied filled mug as a token of his affection. This was followed by a little stomping from my little man accompanied by hands on his hips, looking at me over his glasses with raised eyebrows. "When are you going to finish that shawl for my teacher." I was a bit afraid of the clenched teeth. hehehehehe. Oh got to love kindergarten. Well all that to say it is BLOCKING now.

I have to do something for the other 2 teachers too. So I will be starting those this week.

The kids are loving school and the field trips are starting. After turning in my packet of information to VOLUNTEER at the school I will be able to help in their classrooms. So I will be able to see them a bit during their day.

That is about all for now.
