Garrison got his first little boy haircut the other day. He still doesn't look like himself to me. Sigh. He looks more little boy than baby now. Sigh again.
So for Cassie's birthday this year she got this beginner's knitting kit from her wonderful great-grandma. When a ways back I tried to teach her to crochet, it didn't go well. She struggled. She eventually said it was to hard and had no desire to do it. BUT I wanted her to start learning these things when she is little so they become second nature to her. And she has said over and over that she wants to learn to knit and sew, and all those kinds of things. So I figured that this kit that says "for 7 years and up" might make her ready again. Little did I know she'd be a knitting natural! She has picked it up and knits really quite fast (when she takes the time to knit - she is 7 after all and sitting and knitting isn't always her first choice of activities)
Here she is all proud of her scarf-to-be.
And a close up of her fabulous knitting (now disregard row 1-3 I mean they're her first ones ever) but look how nice and even they are towards the top? She rocks. And also disregard the little frayed piece of yarn towards the top, the wool yarn snapped and I had to tie it in and haven't woven it in totally.
And lastly a little Sunday School happenings. Now honestly we don't normally "do" Sunday School but this church is small enough that we do. Anyways, so Adric's SS teacher was sick on Sunday and didn't leave any materials or anything for SS. I am always in with her and the children (there are only 4 kids lol) SO I decided to go ahead and just make up an impromptu SS lesson. I opened the Bible and there it was "I am the Good Shepherd" We learned all about shepherds, who they are, what they do. We all played sheep and shepherd where one boy had a (yardstick) shepherd's staff and helped guide us little bleating sheep to the sheepfold. We talked about how the Lord is our shepherd and how he takes care of us, how he calls for us, all about it :) AND 95% of all the craft stuff wasn't in the room LOL! SO... this is what we made.
Yeah those sheep are ripped and crumpled paper towels. That's all I had in the room. Paper, glue sticks and paper towels. Though I did have them all trace the letters in the verse (can't take the homeschooling out of me)> But honestly they had a great time. One of the boys who never talks really got into it and laughed and had a great time. I think maybe my teaching style is more up his alley than the other teacher (who is great by the way). And I put on contemporary Christian radio which we all danced to. And the boy who doesn't usually talk was the one who wanted me to keep it on and danced the most. Go figure.
So off to bed to cuddle with my soon to be one year old and still young husband and go to sleep.
