News

I haven't been posting much lately (sorry, everyone!) but quite a bit has been happening here recently. We're having a new roof put on our house. . . the workers all turn up every day at about 7:15am and start drilling and hammering away. . . and yesterday we had a big homeschool Medieval Day - click here to see photos of the day on Lynne's blog - then this morning, Daddy and I were talking at a local Anglican church (not our church) about India. In 2007, a team from our church (myself and my dad included) went on a missions trip to India. We had an amazing time - but that's another blog post. . .

Anyway, Daddy had a powerpoint presentation all put together, with loads of India pictures, then this morning, just as we were about to leave, the whole thing crashed. So - no powerpoint presentation! We just talked instead. All things considered, I think it went very well. :-) The building was full of little old ladies - they were all lovely. :-D

And this evening - just 5 minutes ago - I finished making my first-ever pair of socks!! Yay!! *applause* I'm so happy to have them FINISHED! I didn't have any problem knitting them, it was just sewing the toes up that had me completely befuddled. . . I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to graft the two sides together! Finally, this evening, I found a web page that explains in CLEAR, INTELLIGIBLE ENGLISH how to graft the ends together. I'll have to get some photos of my beautiful socks to show you all. :-D

What other news. . . oh yes - my 15-month-old sister is walking - all by herself, without holding onto anything! She's growing up so fast. . . what will I do when she is all grown up, and there are no more babies in the house? :-( I can't remember a time when I didn't have a baby brother or sister to kiss and cuddle and 'mother'.

Must go now. . . hope you're all well!

Your trip to India sounds interesting! I'm sorry about your computer! I hope you can recover your stuff. I like the painting. :)
My first pair of socks are 3/4 the way done...you see, I lost a needle. :) I've got to finish those this summer.
