Hello blog darlins.
I just have to tell you that school is going better for my ds. I’ve been volunteering on Tuesdays (and skipping my beloved playgroup – wahhh. But it’s for a good cause and only temporary) at his school. His teacher asked me if I’d do a book club with the kiddos (they’re 4th grade) and I said heck ya. It’s totally voluntary on their part. And guess what – they all wanted to do it!!! So, they had to break it up into 4 groups and ask for more volunteers. I mean, that’s totally cool, right? The book we’re reading is Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. It’s actually quite a sad book, about world war 2 and the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. I’m going to ask the kids if they want to make cranes and send them to the Hiroshima Peace Museum. Here’s a cool link, if you’re interested: http://www.pcf.city.hiroshima.jp/kids/KPSH_E/top_e.html
Yes, that’s totally cool. But I have some other cool stuff for ya…
I knit. And I like it a lot. I’m always on the search for inspiration and cool patterns and such. I’m starting to design my own patterns now. This is something that would’ve boggled my mind even just a year ago. Anyway, I found a cool link where you can upload a picture of something you want to knit and it converts it to an actual pattern. Here, just check it out: Knitpro.
And since I was on the theme of knitting being totally awesome, I thought I’d share a pattern I found via the web: hair curlers.
Well, back to the daily grind….Have a TOTALLY COOL TUESDAY!
