Hello.... hello.... hello....

We're still alive.

I haven't posted in over a week. There hasn't been much to report! Let's see,, a quick recap.

Tuesday the 4th

Our first day of Co-op. It was a little hectic but went pretty well. We're studying The War Between the States (The Civil War).

Monday the 10th

Our first day of Band. All three of us are playing. I'm playing the flute, T1 is still playing Trombone (his 4th year!) and T2 is playing the Trumpet.

Tuesday the 11th

I had a Dr's appt.

Wednesday the 12th

Yet another Dr's appt. (we'll get this shoulder fixed eventually)

Today, Friday the 14th

The Fall Kick Off picnic. It was fun and the weather straitened up and stopped raining just in time. Good fun, fellowship and friends.

Shelly recruited me to train to be a tester next year. I may do it. I'll go take the training but I'm going to have to see how busy I am with the Presidential campaign in the spring. I may not have time to do testing too! We'll see.

More on why I'm going to be involved with the upcoming election later! ::: tease :::
I had a hat knitting experiment go seriously wrong this week. You see, I scored this ultra nice, uber soft eyelash yarn at Michael's this past week for FIFTY CENTS. Well,, there wasn't enough of it to do an entire hat. So I thought I'd do it in stripes. OH. MY. GOD. I do not recommend this. I dub this hat "Fraggle Rock" It's so so so so wrong. The worst part was that I stuck with it until the end! Usually when a project starts to go awry, I frog it (rip it, rip it, rip it) but this time I did not. As you can see, I probably should have! No self respecting chemo patient would ever wear this, but my niece might! ha ha ha.
As far as school goes, same 'ol same 'ol. We're reading "The Trumpet of the Swan" by E.B. White as our "round reading" book. The boys were devastated when I brought it out. "THAT'S A GIRL BOOK!"
"look, there's a little boy right on the front (of our copy)"
"SO! It's about S-W-A-N-S!"
"well,, let's read it anyway,, it won't kill you"
groan.....
So they love it. I never read it as a child and wow..... what a cute, cute book. It's a perfect little boy book so far. It also includes lots of information about the swans and geography (on the sly!).

That's about all the news that's fit to print. Maybe next week will be more exciting!
