Last Day of School 2013

I was busy with the boys all last week with all of their programs and activities.  But the last day of school was extra special.  Ryan is moving up to kindergarten, Cameron will be going to 3rd grade, and Jalen will be attending middle school next year....6th grade!  Where did the time go?

My kids had wonderful teachers this past school year and I and the boys will miss having them in our lives.  These ladies weren't just teachers to me.  They showed my boys so much love and I want to say thank you to Mrs. Tanner, Ms. Wall, Mrs. Williams, and Mrs. Moody at Reedy Fork Elementary!  ♥

Jalen was recognized by the Kiwanis Club, his wonderful teacher, and his principal, here giving him the hug, this morning as a Terrific Kid. The Kiwanis Club gives this certificate to kids that demonstrate a positive attitude, good character, and responsible citizenship.

This will be the last time he will be getting the recognition at his elementary school. He'll be moving on to middle school next year.

I made these slippers from my Nest Fiber Studio superwash merino handspun yarn. The solid green in Moda Dea Washable Wool in the color Moss. They didn't take much yarn to make and knitted up super quick. I can see myself making these again.

I have a new baby and she's blonde! My Schacht Matchless spinning wheel. I named my Ashford Kiwi Millie and the new baby needed a name too. My husband sat down in front of her and started to treadle. He treadled faster and faster. Then he looked at me and said, “Name her Roxanne”. I told him I liked Roxy better! She’s bad ass and I’m sure she’ll get me in some trouble. :-)

Born August 17, 2012. Just five days after my 12th year wedding anniversary. Wheel number one of the day. I love her so much!
