Yarn Along.

I'm joining up with Ginny's Yarn Along again. And yes...my honey cowl still looks the same as 2 weeks ago. I pushed this aside to finish Bruce's hat I had started and just picked up the cowl yesterday. Last year I promised Bruce a hat and it didn't get finished until the weather had already started warming up. When we saw there was snow in the forecast I made an effort to finish the hat right away. I know hat's are so simple, but I get bored with them quickly and drag it on. Anyways, it is done and I'm back to working on my cowl!

I just finished this book last night and I really enjoyed it. My birthday was Sunday, and my dad brought this over for me to read. The author, Quinn Cummings, was apparently a child actress but I never saw anything she was in. It's a library book, so I started reading right away and it only took me 3 days to finish. The author decides to try homeschooling her daughter and basically researches all different types of homeschoolers (unschoolers to hardcore fundamentalists, etc.) and goes to different conferences they hold, trying to find a tribe for her and her daughter. It was nice knowing I'm not the only person who is completely overwhelmed by all the different types of homeschoolers and that it's okay to not fit into one certain box. I love her sense of humor, and even if you're not into homeschooling, it was worth the read just for the laugh. 


  1. Are you thinking of homeschooling? I think that is an awesome thing that I wouldn't have the patience for. I really admire those who do it!

  2. We are going to try it out! The only school around here I feel like she could really benefit from is 9,000 a year, so we are really hoping homeschooling goes as well as possible.
