Already. I say this every time- but time just flies by so fast!!
I haven't been posting as much b/c I've just been too busy. B/w homeschooling, knitting, and driving the kids around, I don't have as much time to be on the computer. Joel teases me that I've become a "soccer Mom" overnight. Well, the kids are doing soccer in their PE Co-op that we go to on Wed afternoons; and they are doing swimming lessons twice a week in Gresham, so all of a sudden, we're driving more. It's been really good for them. They aren't nearly as worried about getting water in their faces anymore. YS is still too young for the swimming lessons, but in January he should be able to get involved as well.
I have been knitting as much as possible too (although I confess that I have also been playing our new Wii that Joel won at the Company Picnic last summer- it's been a long time since I played video games!!!). But since everything that I've been knitting for the past month are Christmas presents, you will have to wait until after Christmas for the pictures.
I got another rejection notice for pattern submissions yesterday. I've gotten to the point that I just recycle my design submissions. They're rejected here, I send them there. You get the idea. I figure if I do that for the next 10 years, they'll be in style at some point, and someone will like them. ;) ha, ha.
The other day, DD asked me if the books stay in the library when the library is closed. "Yes, of course". "Well", she answered, "if I was a book, I'd be scared that a pirate was going to come and steal me!"
