Speaking of school...................

There is a group on Facebook from my hometown. Just reminiscing about the town we grew up in.  It's fun and interesting and a great way to reconnect.

There was recently a thread talking about Kindergarten, and how some people didn't go to K, or went to a private K, or in someone's house, or church.

This wasn't too surprising to me but some people didn't even go to Kindergarten!!!  In my town, it was not required to attend K until 1970!!  I am one of the people that never attended Kindergarten.  But I remember learning to read in first grade with the Dick, Jane and Spot books.

A couple of my older siblings went to private K,  but my parents had to pay for them to attend.

It was an interesting memory for me about my very early school years.


Second week of school and so far it's going well.

Little guy starts next week, then we will really be busy.  He will have Boy Scouts one night and every Wednesday he has Awana at church.

Here are some more dishcloths I've been working on. 

They are easy to work on.  I've been bringing yarn and hook to the little guys swim lessons and sometimes I can finish a whole dishcloth~!

More baby blankets from summer

These are all more baby blankets I made this summer.

Most of them,  except the big blue one,  are going to the NICU charity.

Getting caught up

These are some baby blankets I have made over the summer.

They are called Round Ripples and they are fun to make and they work up quickly.

These blankets are going to an NICU charity.

I am ready to start school on the 24th!! That is really soon.

I bought my books last week. I just need three books, but I was shocked at how expensive they are.

I am shocked about how expensive three credits of a college class is too.

My daughter has told me what to bring in my backpack so I am all set to go.

I'll update again after school starts.
