Life has definitely whizzed by. And a lot has gone on.
Today we are getting back in to the routine of school. Tomorrow we are going to a Valentine’s/ 100 Days of School Party with our homeschool group. We are all excited about it.
Yesterday we made valentines:
I gave Peanut full creative license on hers. She decided to add her own artistic touches with glitter glue and ball point pen.
Bubba and I worked together on his. He loved the stickers.
Today, we counted out 100 goldfish and 100 chocolate chips for the group trail mix, and 100 crayons for show and tell. Peanut was shocked that we had 100 crayons, and was amazed at how small of a pile it really was.
This afternoon we will be making cupcakes and cookies to bring to the party. (I’ll post pictures when they’re done!)
I have been working hard the past week crocheting a blanket for a friend who is about to have a baby. It took me four attempts to get the width right, and I feel like it’s still shrinking. It could be the yarn I chose, but I think it’s the variation in my tension with each row. I should be done by now!
Bubba thinks it’s his blanket, even though I told him it was for his friend’s new baby sister. He keeps taking it and wrapping it around himself, which pulls out some stitches. Ah, but he’s so cute putting the blanket over his little toes.
I am so excited, however, that my dining room has FINALLY gotten the second (and last) coat, and I can hang my pictures back on my walls! I am so relieved that it’s done, and I can check that off my list!
