I didn't get the Memo

You know, the one that told parents how active the social life of a 5 year old can be.  Good gracious - soccer,

scarecrow festival,

family party and farm visit.  All in one weekend. 

When is a gal supposed to have time to knit?

Life in Kindergarten

One big party!  Two parties this weekend - super hero party yesterday:
Lego party this evening.  And because tomorrow is a Federal holiday, playdate in the morning :)
Scarecrow building party on the 23rd, then another birthday party on the 30th.
Ahhhh! To be 5 again....

Weekend in Review

After soccer Friday night on the school field and a trip to the National Zoo


we went to a birthday party Sunday afternoon.




This is Biscuit - the birthday girl's gift!



Our gift (pictured here -->) included a puppy-pal (cuddly puppy stuffed with buckwheat that you warm in the microwave so the real puppy doesn't miss his mommy so much), a chic leash-attaching satchel containing a roll of puppy-waste collecting baggies, a squeaking monkey (EVERY new puppy needs a squeaking monkey!), and a Halloween costume :)




In knitting news I am happy to report that I have been sock knitting.  I am also sad to report that I am a-d-d-i-c-t-e-d to Ravelry.  The forums, they suck me in and drain my days away!  So much useless information and needless drama.  It is better than reality teevee :)

How fun is

THIS?

Oh! To live in the UK... :sigh:

ps: The conversion is complete.  Two of my most challenging "I can't knit" woman have succumb to the mesmerizing, gentle, soothing, click-click-click of needles and yarn held in-hand.  (Yes, Joan and Lourdes, I am talking about YOU!)
