We've had a great time just taking some time off...but it's also been good to get back into our school/tennis(and for me, stitching!) vibe. Ian's league play starts on Friday night and we'll be back to tournaments in a couple of weeks! Homeschool is going great - homeschooling is definitely not for everyone (10 years ago, if someone would have told me that I would ever be a homeshooler, I would've thought that they had gone "around the bend" and not come back!) It works for us though and we're enjoying the opportunities that it provides us. We're getting back on a roll...and it feels good.
I'm trying to get myself in gear and get started on some Christmas gifts - this Lizzie Kate design will be for one of the sweet folks that help with my mom. They don't do the "internet" thing, so I feel pretty safe in posting this. (If you're my sweet "D" in Ohio and you think I'm making this for you for Christmas - please forget you ever saw this, okay???) :)
We've been having fun enjoying the awesome waves that the beach has been offering here this week. Hurricane "Earl" got close enough to give us some "gnarly" waves - the highest in our county in a few years, but not close enough to do any damage. (great situation!) Due to my knee issues, I didn't get the courage to take my board out, but I live with a couple of "surfer dudes" who think this was a WONDERFUL week!!! :)
I've really been having fun doing a bit of blog-hopping, I just love seeing what everyone is up to - there are some lovely, talented people in "blogland". I also SO appreciate the wonderful comments that have been left for me. Ya'all just say the sweetest things! May ya'all be blessed in bunches!
