funny Lotus

Lotus runs off fast but this one started with a scoot and a plotting grin. I love looking at photos again later and finding a few more gems I overlooked the first time.

fencing and play

My Isaac is taking a full week of fencing classes, aka “Fencing camp.” I hope he enjoys it enough for three hours a day;)

Jason is such a rock star. On a whim I decided to see how cheap we could acquire a swing set on craigslist. IN THE SAME DAY Jason bought a play structure, transported it home and reassembled it in our backyard. The kids are going nuts on it and having fun.

Knitting news

After a month long hiatus, I finally picked up my knitting and finished this shawl: The Traveling Companion Shawl. It may not be exactly my style but it was fun to knit. Who knows…maybe I’ll make it my style!
