The start of a new era

Today was the beginning of something new for our family. My older kids started middle school. Their sphere of influence has grown. They are now around kids that aren't from our small little community. They are in school with teenagers. They also have to get out of bed 2 hours earlier than they did last year. Yes, middle school starts 2 hours earlier than grade school. I think this is totally crazy. They did fine with it of course.

All in all they had a good day. I for the life of me can't figure out their schedule. That may be because some of their classes are every other day, but on their schedule it says they are every day. Do they not know how to limit the days listed? Please!

The other two kids also started grades school today. The too had a good day and are looking forward to the rest of the year.

Sorry for not blogging in awhile. We vacationed in July, and then came back to Football and Cheer. I was named as a cheer Sponsor (adult coach). So literally we have practiced in one way or another every day except Sundays in August. I love this time of year, but would like a little more me time.

I haven't been knitting much as it has been too hot. I am trying now to finish up some socks for me in Ray's Blue Jeans colorway. They are almost done. As soon as they are finished I will finish the toes on my hubby's socks that are done in the Austermann Step. I FINALLY got the new skein of yarn to finish the toes so the stripes would match. Yes I am that anal. When they are done I will post the finished product. Oh I also did the Coachella top from Knitty summer. I chose the color Nelly Belle in the recommended yarn which was Berocco Suede. I just LOVE the names of their colors for this yarn. I like how it turned out, but think maybe I should have made the top a size smaller. It has a cowl neck and I keep thinking I am flashing everyone just because I can see it all. Of course at times I may be. Hmmm! Anyhow I will try to post a photo of that also. TTFN, Miki
