The blog-a-day is back. I would say by popular demand but really it is just because I enjoyed it and apparently I won’t blog unless I think I “have” to.
My knitting is coming along. I must be a better teacher (or student) than I thought. I made a friend a scarf. I haven’t seen her wear it yet, but she says she likes it and she doesn’t lie.
Speaking of being a good student, we shall soon see. My first class starts on the 11th. I’ll keep you updated on how that goes.
Last week I was sitting on the couch with all my children reading to them. The babies don’t sit still very long, they would climb down and run around and play and then come back and sit for a minute or two. I had each of the big kids pick out a book to read/or be read to them. Josiah picked out the Bernstein Bear’s B Book. If you have never read it, it goes like this
“Big Brown Bear, Blue Bull, Beautiful Baboon Blowing bubbles biking backwards”…..etc…but it starts with just one word on the page and then adds a word or two on each following page, Josiah love to read it for some reason. Josiah paused and Judah said “This book has a lot of alliteration in it.” And then Josiah said “This book is repetitive.”
Can I just say how extremely happy I am that school is starting again on Monday. I am so ready to be back on some kind of schedule. I work best that way.
Right this minute Micah is standing on a step stool in the kitchen playing the waffle iron like a piano and singing, and now Hosea has come into the room and is dancing to Micah’s song.
Judah said his “new year’s revolution was to gain more weight” good luck son.
I hope you had a wonderful New Years Day. I am looking forward to seeing what 2010 has in store for me.
