The big kids arrived home on Sunday evening to a chirpy Welcoming Committee of two very happy little girls.
We've been busy and I've been knitting a lot on stuff that I haven't taken pictures of so you'll have to wait a little bit to know more about those projects.

Last Friday night (yes, Harry Potter night) I had a rare opportunity to attend an evening time knitting meeting. It's just so fun to be around knitting friends and we were all chatting about the new yarn shop opening, which happens to be TODAY!! Yay!! Visit TWIST when you're in Wichita - you won't regret it! So anyway, Laurie had told me in advance that she would be bringing some seaming yarn that a friend of hers got at an estate sale. Oh my word I never DREAMED it would be so much! It filled up the back of my van!! Yippee!!
So that's the square news for today. I've already taken Benny to conditioning this morning and he started football camp yesterday evening. The kids have hit the ground running and I've gotta get up to speed or I'll be left in their dust!
Today I'll be continuing to knit socks and also getting a few packages out in the mail. I need to make a LIST. A LIST of all the packages I need to send!! They've gotta get finished up before this CONTEST is over y'all!! Don't forget to leave a comment on the Contest Post telling how many afghan squares you think we'll receive! Contest ends August 1st at midnight (12am Aug 2nd).
Anyone wanna chime in on their experience with getting their morning glories to bloom when they were planted in rich soil?? We've got vines that could compete with Jack and the Beanstalk but not a single flower. Yet.
