i just wanted to check in & apologize for being MIA for so long... my lack of posting is due to a.) our camera is broke (we just don't have much luck with electronics grrr) & b.) just not much to report. ....but i'll give a little update anyway. sweety girl is now a kindergartner -at home- & things are already more of a challenge than i expected. we're so bad about being in a good routine, so that doesn't help, but actually teaching this girl is not always going smoothly. she's extremely bright but just seems to have a bit of a block when it comes to letters & words. i don't know if it's stubbornness or that she just isn't getting it yet. we're persevering though. ....little man is still working on the potty training, but we'll have a good day followed by 2 or 3 frustrating ones, but i don't expect these things to happen quickly so it's ok. he has a new word though! it goes like this: "dehr-CHTT!" did you get that? it means "truck", of course :) ...i want to get back in sewing mode & make sweety girl some dresses & little zipper pouches for school, among other things, but can't get into that mode yet. i have been working on some water color projects, though, that i'll post soon. ....also want to motivate myself to get out & get my fall garden planted, (which first involves tearing out the scorched overgrowth & weeds weeds weeds from the summer garden) but the weather is just starting to turn, so soon it will be cool enough to want to be out again. ok. i'll stop there. see, i told you it wasn't exciting ;) just wanted to give a little shout ...out there.
