It is hard to believe Mr. 22 is getting ready to return to Ohio tomorrow. Where did the time go? I am almost ready to break down in hysteria right now thinking about it so I am not going to talk about it to much.
I know someone else who might even be more devastated than me. There is nothing like a big brother to toss you all over the pool and think nothing of it. Flip you upside down and drop you in the water, go to the bottom of the pool and jump up so fast your suit falls off your little behind. Big brothers are much more adventuresome than mom's that is for sure!
I have taken a million photos and videos so Little Buddy and I can look at them and remember the wonderful time we have had with Mr. 22 home.
Although we are not making much progress on the potty front we are in the pool. Little Buddy can sit on the edge of the pool, jump in and get himself back to the wall, even reaching up to the wall with both hands and pull his head out of the water. That was the goal I had set for us by the end of the summer, wouldn't you know Little Buddy accomplished it in half the time. He also uses his hands to wall walk all the way over to the steps and can climb out of the pool. He almost has the ability to float on his back, roll onto his belly, and back onto his back where he can catch his breath. We are days away from that being accomplished. I think he prefers the fun times in the pool with his brother more than the teaching time with me, but we know it is good to have both!
It is hard to believe that this might one day be a sweater. It always amazes me when I cast on the first stitch that my project just might end up to be a sweater, blanket, dishcloth or whatever, but it will be something and it all started with a ball of yarn and the very first stitch. The pattern is Harvest from Tin Can Knits, and it is free! Caffeine Girl just finished her first Harvest and it was a big hit!
It is hard to believe this little loom will someday make scarves. I treated myself to the Ashford SampleIt Loom for my birthday. I know you are thinking just how many looms does a girl need? I think I am done buying them after this one. I really wanted a simple, small loom just to make scarves, nothing big and fancy. I found this one at a great price on Ebay and made a little bit of an impulsive purchase. It will get a lot of use and I am excited to put it together after I have fully treated the wood.
It is hard to believe the weekend is nearing completion. After working four full days last week, including Friday I have not caught my breath yet. Still another week looms ahead of me with work, appointments for Little Buddy, and a brand new little person I will be evaluating on Tuesday. All of that and of course Mr. 22 leaving early tomorrow is already making me feel tired and overwhelmed. So if you hear someone sobbing and carrying on it is just little ole me feeling a bit sorry for myself. I know you understand.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
