It's Inevitable

- That I miss posting when I say I'm going to
- That our family always has a multiple things going on at the same time
- That when you give your phone to your child to take pictures of "that thing that is making a creaking noise outside" you will also get pictures like this:

She's very proud of her hand and foot pictures by the way.  The bird droppings on the car - well, she just wanted me to know that there was something on my car.

As far as the "creaking noise that she was investigating.  It was a cricket:

She even found him later near our cars:

But life marches on here.  Our past few weeks have been busy as Chad continues working on his classes in pursuit of his Bachelors degree and Ann has now been invited to a reading club in the library for advanced readers.  She is very excited to participate in that.  I also continue working on my projects for work and have successfully tested to be recognized as a developmental care specialist from my professional organization.  The last big iron I have put into the fire is that I have applied for a graduate school program at MUSC but will have to wait until April before I hear about that.

In closing, Happy Valentines day to all!  And, we hope that you have a good week.

Missed Again

Looks like I missed Sunday again. Oops. Working all weekend makes me inclined to do that.  That said I'll likely be late with next week's post too.

Our house is busy this time of year. Ann and Chad are doing school work while I am working on an application for a graduate program. I'll give more details when it comes through.

Work and hobbies otherwise keep us busy, as well as keeping up with what is happening in the world. 

This week I used my die cutter to make South Carolina/Charleston themed pillows for the couch. (Since I'm making this post from my phone I'm not sure where the photos will attach, but hopefully they are here somewhere.)

Not much more to say this week, but I will be sure to make more time next week.

Later all!

Oops, I missed last Sunday but will post the weekly information tomorrow (sometime late after my shift at work honestly). I'm posting tonight just to get a few abstract thoughts out there.

That said, I share these with you:

Take what you will from Jim Henson's lessons, we definitely need more of them.  Other priorities will prevent me from commenting further on my thoughts leading to these.

One Week

One week into the new year and life is status quo in our household.  Ann is back in school and doing her daily thing as well as Chad and I in our normal work routines (as if my work routine is ever normal.)  The biggest event so far is that Ann has lost her fourth tooth after weeks and weeks of it wiggling (it looks as if the new tooth can already be seen).

A little crafting has occurred and attempts at organizing my supplies in the house are in progress.  Unfortunately nothing to show that has not already been shown.

Hope that everyone has a good week and I'll talk with you later.
