Only eight school days, two field trips, a choir concert and one talent show until we bid adieu to the 2011/2012 school year.
My DH spent the past weekend at drill and the older girls were busy with school projects/socializing, so A3 and I had some quiet time. I finished some knitting projects. The booties were actually completed some time back, but I never got around to taking pictures of them. I love bright colors for babies! These are destined for a couple who play World of Warcraft with my husband.
Here is a replacement of the burgundy and purple scarf (first one donated), along with a green ruffled version.
A2 had recent cut and color change for her hair. She reminds me of Tinkerbell now!
Steven has been exceptionally cuddly lately. He just can’t wait for someone to lay down so he can trap their legs under the blankets.
I experimented with a gluten-free apple pie for my DH. The filling was a tad too sweet, but the crust didn’t taste any worse than other store-bought crusts. Unfortunately, there was soy in this crust, so I couldn’t bring any to my friend/co-worker to try. She was hit with the double whammy of no wheat or soy. That’s a hard combination to accommodate.
A1 made the Varsity Cheer Team at our school for the second year in a row. She’s happy and relieved. The competition was pretty intense. To blow off stress, she and another girl (also on the team) transformed our dining room table into a bow factory the other night. Some of these were ridiculously huge.
To get an idea of scale, here are the two of them wearing the larger bows. I’m really not sure why the friend is wearing a banana suit. The pair of them walked up to her house to pick up clothing Saturday evening, and this is how they returned. Some people driving by them stopped to take pictures. It isn’t often that fruit dances down the sidewalks where we live.
A3 is almost as tall as her sisters and me now. I’m glad the school year is almost over because she’s outgrown most of her clothes and shoes. A3 has memorized her piano song for the talent show, but she keeps changing things up. I can’t convince her to pick one version and just practice that so she won’t panic and get confused during the performance.
I hope to finish up the green socks started last weekend and to make a pair of Cornhusker socks (or maybe mittens, they’re faster) this week between performances. Cheers!
