Hello! I don't use Google+ much. If I post something here does it show on my main public feed?

'Roid Week starts Monday. I have 10 new shots but nothing spectacular. I guess I'll have to shoot something on Sunday.

This is kind of what I was thinking. They have a set list of things they have to do every day. Every so often they are particularly helpful and dh will give them money when he hears about it as a treat, but they've been asking how they can earn money to save for a couple of things they want.

Trying to decide on my Ravellenic projects. So far I have Thing 2's hat, a baby sweater and chunky socklettes. All small, fast knits that I could do (each) in a few days. I'm wondering if I should just do those now and pick something else. Or add another thing.

Or i could just do those and not spend every moment of my life knitting during the olympics.

Big things happening around here. Thing 1 lost her second tooth and Thing 3 is reading all by herself but only if she thinks you aren't paying attention. I can't figure it out and she tells me she can't read when I ask why. The only thing I can think of is she doesn't want to "perform" her new skill.

The one I nannied does the same thing on reading, I think it's fear they won't be read to if they can do it themselves. Just a thought.

The joys of being an adult child. And the oldest. And the most "responsible" one.

I homeschool my 6-1/2 yearl old triplets. We're in that lovely place where my husband worries they aren't learning when we unschool. LOL So we're working at finding a compromise that works for all.

He is slow to come around to all of my "crazy ideas" but he does. Same thing with cloth diapering, co-sleeping and even homeschooling. Now he's fully on board with keeping them home but is still sort of stuck on the idea of school-at-home. Mind you he went to boarding school in Britain in the late 60s/early 70s then was an officer in the Israeli army for a few years. A lot of that rigity has gone, but not all!

The boy scout who was lost was actually a path and would leave the path whenever he heard someone coming and hide. He didn't come out until the person on the path was a ranger if I remember correctly.

A good watch and something to think about even for homeschoolers. Are your kids getting enough down time?

A sneak peek of the yarn I'd like to de-stash. I'll be photographing it well after next when I get home from San Diego. (the Wollmeise in the back is sold.)
