Hello all! I read somewhere that bloggers usually give up blogging after 3 months. I didn't think that would be me-- I think I just got overwhelmed! I have decided to take up blogging again and I don't plan not to give up anytime soon! There is so much I want to share and I want to catch up with all my fellow bloggers-- I have missed so much!
I have been knitting and "homeschooling" our last bean! Mason can not count to 5--woohoo!! AND the most shocking--in case you haven't heard-- is that We moved to Virginia. November 1st, 2010! We happily "wintered" in our new state!
I have been online sporadically, at best. I facebook a little and been hanging at ravelry bit. My television watching has diminished. If it is not on Disney Channel I am not watching it! One of things I am going to start doing is blogging each week on what I am reading and knitting-- since I do both obsessively this is a great way to get me to check in each week. I created a Flickr account(aren't I fancy?!) I am so psyched about this-- It all started when I was reading Ginny blog!
I got inspired and decided to add my own photo! I love seeing what everyone is knitting and reading. I love knowing there are other knitters out there. I am reading Family History by Dani Shapiro. There is much mystery surrounding what happened to place the couple's daughter in a school for behavioral issues. And I knitting up a sweet little summer raglan for Mason with Family Roots Christmas Orange colorway! I love the colors as they are knitting up!
I am on the fence on homeschooling Cooper. I have been dwelling on it all year. I really want to and I know I could teach him so much academically but socially he would suffer. I am not as social(even on my best day!) as Cooper is! BUT I would like to give it a try with him. There are so many groups and activities to do with other homeschoolers that we could go out each day, if we chose, but I am not sure if I would make a conscious effort all the time.
I wish you all could have been with me today! Mason and I had a great morning-- we played at the beach! Can you imagine playing in the sand on a school day? It was beautiful. Lord have Mercy-- I love (NO I ADORE) where I live. I feel like I have always been here! When Rhett tells Scarlett that she gets her strength from Tara-- well I feel like that here in this place. I breath in the air and look around and feel myself settle down inside. I feel peace and I find myself so inspired so often.
