spring break '10

Oh, hey there!
I always underestimate the power of re-entry. However, I feel that we are finally back in the groove around here.
Spring Break this year was pretty close to the breaks in the past.
Except that the kids are a year older.
My parents got us a dog! (More on that later.)
The eggs were harder to find.
We got up early, went to the beach, and watched the space shuttle discovery take off.
A lot of friendship bracelets were made.
And the first stingray was caught (and released).
Back tomorrow to share a few little knits.
Have a great day!

You sure do know how to capture life with your camera. Cute toes and rubber ducky too. I'm excited to see your knits. How about some cookies with that? :-)

Missed you Leslie! I read your post from 2007 where your Mom is wearing that great cardigan. Do you think you could find out that pattern for me? Also, can't wait to hear about the dog. It looks like some type of terrier. And the name?!!! Glad your back! Chris

Every time I see your spring break pictures I ask myself "I wonder if Leslie's mom knows my mom?" as they both live in the same town. We didn't make it down there this spring break - instead my parents met is in Virginia. Looks like you had a lovely time...can't wait to see your knitting.

Your vacation sounds so wonderful.

Just a little forewarning, YOUR life is fixing to change dramatically with the entry of that precious doggie. You will love it and hate it. My kids begged for a dog and guess who takes care of it???? I have another child. (after raising 6)~Jan

Your post made me smile, because I can remember spending hours making friendship bracelets, and i carried all my threads around in one of those containers, and use to use the lid to hold onto the end too :)
