It is almost time....
I am competing in the Ravelympics. I finished my Mr. Greenjeans (knitty.com) for the WIP Wrestling and I've started my February Lady Sweater, I dont' know if I'll finish it, but I'm going to try.
On the home front, DS18 (how did he get to be 18) leaves for U of I on Tuesday. My mom and I will take him down, but he took his "stuff" down on Thursday. Here he is exhibiting his best imitation of a studious student. It is as if my heart is being ripped from my body to think of him going away, but I have given him all the tools I can and it is now time for him to make his own way in life. I hope I have done my job. There will be 2 boxes of kleenex in the car on Tuesday, be sure.
DS#3 doesn't get to make the blog very often, so since I'm on a family "bent", I'll post his picture. He will turn 3 on 8/25.
To round out the family theme of this entry, I present DD#2, she was a flower girl in June for her cousin (thank you Katie) and she was lovely. She'll be in therapy over the shoes, but if that is all she's in therapy for, I'm lucky.
