2/13/11 (Sunday) – My wake-up crew took pictures of me sleeping, the flash was my wake up call. I won’t scare you with those photos. Instead here are two of the four handsome faces I wake up for every day.
2/14/11 (Monday) – Charlie’s farm.
2/15/11 (Tuesday) – I picked this apron pattern from The Apron Book Making, Wearing, and Sharing a Bit of Cloth and Comfort by EllynAnne Geisel and vowed to myself to follow the pattern’s directions to a ‘T’!
I wanted to prove to myself that I can follow directions, I FAILED!
Early in the directions I learned the pattern isn’t making this exact apron (matching waist-line fabric and bottom of apron fabric). The directions were for the apron skirt to be in one piece – no bottom border. I wanted my apron to look similar to the photo! I already had my fabric picked out and my vision was set. I modified the design.
2/16/11 (Wednesday) – Playing outside in the first meltdown puddles.
Henry found brown grass to feed Vanilla.
2/17/11 (Thursday) – Busy day: skiing with friends in the fog,
Gym class with Robbie for Jump Rope for Heart,
and a visit to the emergency room.
2/18/11 (Friday) – Dominos at nap-time.
2/19/11 (Saturday) – Iola Winter Sports Club Youth Ski Program – roasting hot dogs on the trail and reading The Race of the Birkebeiners by Lise Lunge-Larsen.
2/20/11 (Sunday) – Our sledding date was cancelled due to the lack of snow. Instead we went bowling with our friends. Jack was the photographer, not a bowler! (The rest of the photos were taken by Jack)
