I snuck in some knitting time this week.
But it was a crazy one.
Started the week with parent conferences. It can be so emotional sometimes. Telling stories to the parents about their children. I'm very sensitive to the fact that we are (in most cases) their child's first step away from home. And there is that hole for them. Their children are living a life of their own in the hours they spend at my school. I want to share all the happiness, love, joy and wonder that is their child's when they are with me. It never feels like enough.
Family haircuts. Loved it! Bring your hair stylist into your home and she cuts everyones hair in one night. It was such a party! The pictures don't tell the whole story...the boys had a blast. Wish I could show off my new 'do, but my hair has been pushed into a hat these days.
Before...(but after the ceiling and trim)...
during...with a little help from Julen..
We put no thought into the color...How about this one? Ok. So we went with it. I love it. Now we just need to move the furniture back.
We had friends visit from the farm...bringing tons of bulbs. John spent a couple hours with the boys planting them all. The house will be blooming in no time.
Found some good reading at the library...so many beautiful new projects to try.
Happy December!! xxx
