Another Week

This was the first official week of school with all of my littles. I can’t complain because I have 23 now.  Much better than last year with 27. I know, you mqy think that is only 5 kids, but that does make a difference.  Here are a few shots of my classroom.  I am falling in love with mm y new room each day. I have so much room.

On the yarn front I finished my wrap from Craftsy.

I am also taking the class Double Knitting.  So far I am in love with this technique. I can’t see getting bored with it. I also made some minion hats.

Not Much Accomplished

I don’t know where this week went. OH YA, I had to go back to work this week. We had 2 days of Inservice and 2 days to work in our classrooms. I am happy with the way my room is turning out. I will post pictures later this week. I didn’t get any knitting or crochet in this week. I did go to our Crochet Guild’s officers meeting. It is always nice to share what is happening in our lives with each other. I also got a couple of ideas for selling some of my things. I was pumped when I left that I went home and created my business card.

I really like the way it turned out. I ordered them from Vista Print. I can’t wait to get them.

Till next time.

Summer is almost over

I can’t believe summer is almost over. One of my goals this summer was to blog more. Well that didn’t happen. I blogged once. Oh well, life goes on. I do have to say it has been a very busy summer. To start off I decided to fish in the Kansas Walleye Association Tournaments this summer. My fishing partner was another woman. We were the one and only team that has every fished the KWA tournaments. That was just one hurdle to get over. It was so much fun to fish. We fished five different tournaments over two months. The last weekend in June was our last tournament. After all the tournaments we placed 28th out of 60 teams. I have to say for these two girls that have never fished by themselves, we did pretty darn good. I am very proud of what we accomplished this summer.

Then three days after the tournament my family left for a week and a half vacation. Our travels took us to Lake Oahe in South Dakota. Man that was a long drive, 10.5 hours. BLAH.

Now that all of that is finished I am in school mode. School starts here August 14th. I have to report back on August 6th. That is just a few days away. I have been up to my building already getting my room ready for the little people. I should have taken progressive photos of my classroom. It looked like a tornado hit it. It has to get messy before you see progress. I am happy with the way it has turned out. I also have to give a big shout out to my mom for coming up and helping me. She even ran a couple of errands for me.

I have gotten a couple of things completed in the knit and/or crochet world. I did finish my Knot Socks by Nancy Bush.
