OMG, after 2 months of trying to figure out how to sign on to the new Google account, I'm finally back! I know, I'm obviously not very bright, but honestly I didn't try very hard. But Mom has been bugging me for a post, so here I am.
Kid News: K-man was December student of the month for his grade! To quote him: "I didn't see THAT coming." We are very proud that he's turned his delinquent self around to be a respectable citizen. Little One was Student of the Week for her class last week, and she feels she's very deserving since she's well-behaved anyway. She's a cheeky thing.
Go Karts: You'd think the season was over, but it's not... We went to FLA for the winter Nationals at Volusia Speedway. K-man finished 2nd in his race the first day, and finished 6th the second day after engine trouble. Little One finished 2nd in her race as well, and had a very good time. He had a big race this weekend at the indoor Kart place and finished 2nd for his age group for the Dirt Series, and 5th overall for his age group. K-man has his own website now, check it out!
Knitting News: I finished a scarf for my boss, finished tying in the ends of my MIL's sweater (a Lopi Lite pattern from Book #16, it's pattern #9) and I have swatched the most gorgeous yarn from Colinette that was a Christmas present from Wendy and Carrie. The link doesn't even justify the gorgeous color of this yarn--the olive green is deeper, and the sparks of color are vibrant. It will become a hat for moi!
Spot finally died, the ungrateful little bugger. He had a gorgeous toilet-side ceremony attended by me (the kids were at grandma's). The others are looking very healthy. I'm not buying another fish, either. Remind me of that now and then.
