Things That Keep Me From My Knitting

WHS Marching Band made it to Semi-State.
First time ever!
See they move so quickly I can't even get a good picture.
So we have been watching them March the last few weekends.
Then the youngest made it through to the championship game
of the fall soccer season for the U14 league.
Maroon looked great! Yes it is coed.

And WOOHOO they won! Here is M(with glasses) and the gang.

So all these things keep me away from my knitting and I am feeling
the Christmas crunch - so much to make so little time.
But here is a lovely gift coming along nicely.

Two Down One To Go.....

So the 2nd 16 year old in the house got her drivers license too!
Here she is getting ready to drive herself to band practice.
Sadly the van for the 2 of them to share died.
So now we have 4 drivers and just 2 cars.
The boys are looking for something but that is going slowly.
Here is my latest knitting on a reluctant model...
Yes a Harry Potter scarf ~ and I think my first finished Christmas gift!
Oh and luckily we have just about 3 years rest til this one starts driving!

Busy Time of Year

We are just finishing Cross country season, still in the middle of Marching Band season and Soccer season. I dream of the Saturday that we no one in the family has to be somewhere.

But our big news of the week is that Joe was interviewed by a friend for a magazine article and it came out yesterday.

Here is an online like to the magazine - scroll down to the bottom of the home page. There is my son's smiling face - the article is about service oriented kids. We are quite proud -- of course we were even before the article.
Check it out here.

Girls Getaway Weekend

National Book Festival
On the Mall in DC
Went for a long weekend with 2 friends
We had a blast. Saw lots of authors
Here is Judy Bloom - she had a big line for her signing!

Here we are Lisa, Me and Laurie
enjoying dinner.

And there was even a bit of time for knitting.
Weekends away with friends are a must.
We will begin planning for next year soon!
