On point

Thanks to Zoomom I will soon have two new projects on my needles. Here is a picture of one hat that Sweet Pea 2 wants me to make. He picked out the exact same colors!!! LOL

Here are the colors that Sweet Pea 1 picked out. I'll be starting on both of these today.

The bug has bitten me....

The knitting bug that is!! Last year I started working on this purse. I chose different colors as you'll see below.

I laid it down because Spring sprang and I lost my knitting "bug". Here is what I have done thus far last year and since picking it back up. I probably won't be working on it much more until I get the hats done for the boys.

Our school room/office....

Someone was wanting to see pictures of school rooms...this is about as close as we get. I do have a dream one day of something larger with a nice couch, but for now we use this and our living room which is right off the school room/office.

Going for a ride

Poor little Fluff (that's the cat)....he wasn't feeling so well that day so Sweet Pea 2 decided to take him for ride in his dump truck....and he just rode and rode.

I haven't forgotten everyone.....

I just haven't felt much like "talking".

Cutting our school work back to the basics has been GREAT for all of us. It also gave me a chance to figure out what to do so that we can be finished around lunch time and have the afternoon off. And I think my new plan mentioned in a previous post has now evolved into an even GREATER new plan.

We start back tomorrow including our classical studies which we usually read in the afternoons. We will be read that over lunch time while the boys eat, then I'll eat when we are finished. It should work out well....tomorrow will be day one to try it out. I also changed our piano lesson day to a morning time instead of afternoon and I REALLY like it. I would have preferred it closer to lunch time so that would be the last thing of the day but it didn't work out that way...maybe next year if I can get someone to permanently swap with me. Last week was our first time going at 10:15. When we finished we came home and finished up a subject or two, then were off for pizza and library. It was a nice break for all of us.

I'll try to check in at least once a week from now own.
