First Day of Fourth Grade

Post from August 11, 2014



4th grade already?! Wasn't he just in 3rd grade?



Yes, yes he was. And he hasn't grown much. All the growth you see here actually occurred during the past 3 months of summer break. He had not grown at all from the beginning to the end of 3rd grade, if you remember the pictures. He has gained about 10% in weight. You can see his shoulders filling out, and his feet are at least a full size larger now (mens size 8).

Here is the full chain of first day pictures.

Hoping for a great year!

When I'm Not Blogging

As most of you know, I enjoy several different hobbies and crafts. The weird thing, though, is that I tend to only do one at a time. I'll do a lot of reading for a while, then I'll pretty much stop reading and do something else, like watch movies. After doing that for a while, I'll switch to stitching. Then maybe I switch to a cooking mood. Each phase tends to last several weeks, and during that time, I pretty much ignore my other hobbies. Unfortunately, that includes blogging! (And just as sadly, a blogging phase usually lasts only a week, maybe 2 at the most.) I've tried several different things to try and prompt me to rotate hobbies more frequently or blog more often, but nothing really seems to work. Sorry about that!

I've spent most of my evenings in July doing cross stitch. Thought you might want to see some progress, since I don't have much else to show on the blog. (Prepping pictures from our trips takes so much time!)

Here is this month's progress on Titania. I've put in about 45 hours total on her.

And here is this month's progress on Adia, showing about 32 hours total.

I'm still stitching away, so look for another update on these two ladies in the July round-up (you know, if I'm back to blogging by then!).

Summer Recovery In Progress

We're sorry, Erin isn't available at the moment. She is still recovering from her absolutely exhausting June. Non-linear blogging will resume when she has the time and energy. In the meantime, please enjoy these photos taken by her sister-in-law during the final June outing with the family:



Currently feeling: so very tired
