liam had testing this week. yes, we homeschool-but we belong to a homeschool charter-which means-we still are funded by the public school system-which is how i get to spend $500 a semester on music lessons, curriculum and other fun classes. which is also why i agree to testing so our school can get funding. here's the kids dissecting an old rotted log-we found tons of life forms and learned the importance of the log returning to the earth.
i love our school. so anyway-i decided to spend a few hours just for me! a cup of tea and knitting at a coffee shop. how decadent!!!! how peaceful, how wonderful. i've been going thru my yarn stash and found a bunch of this yarn i dyed years ago at one of our fiber guild's dye days. perfect for my mr. greenjeans sweater.
spring seems to have come and gone. i was bloody hot today. my arugala bolted a month ago! dang-we need more rain and not 80 degree temps. it's not even may!!!! i had a bunch of spring pictures for you-i better post them quick before things change. here's a happy tree frog coming out to welcome spring awhile back:a sure sign of spring is the girls sharing nesting boxes as they just can't wait for an empty one-eggs galore!the "hound's tongue" is blooming:liam is finding lots of poisonous mushrooms-here's a destroying angel:tomorrow i go to watercolor painting class. i'm nervous- as i really want to be able to do it-but afraid i will suck at it. i've tried in the past-and really really sucked at it-but i failed miserably the first time i tried to learn to knit but the second time with a different teacher a differnent state and a different knitting style-was a charm. bonnie at the yarn barn in lawrence, kansas-was able to teach me to knit-bless her! so hopefully the 2nd time will be a charm again.
i've been dying and spinning getting ready for the rebel ridge annual plant sale-birdsong and i are having a booth! sorry no pics yet. the sale is next weekend!
