time to put up some new kids pics. they are growing up so fast. last week jackson took his first independent steps. no pics yet but hopefully soon. reuben went to his first day of school – or pre-k as he calls it. it was a no tears day for all involved:
just a week earlier both reuben and elleigh got their first real bikes. reuben was told that his “didn’t come with training wheels” so he is now riding on just two wheels and loving it:
elleigh loves her all-girl bike because there are bows and a basket, perfect for carrying around lambie and her blanket (which she calls her ahhhhh):
on saturday the air force academy had a kids day on the football field. the whole family had a terrific time. can you see why?
i have been knitting like crazy but nothing i can post here. i alternate between christmas gifts and socks for the sock club at work. i am actually making a good bit of progress. two projects are finished and two more are almost there. unfortunately the line-up behind them never seems to get smaller. i find that as mom needs more and more of my attention i get quite a bit of knitting accomplished sitting with her in her apartment downstairs. she likes to watch the game show channel with the sound turned way up but it doesn’t bother me too much if i can sit and relax and knit.
