I was in the kitchen when I turned around and saw this

Could it have been this that he was so eager to see?

Dan kept asking to go to the park 2 times today, once in the afternoon, and then again with Jack got out of school. I should have done that, because it was so nice and sunny and around 49 degrees out.

I didn't want to go 2 times, so I told him to wait till his brother got out to school. And of course, as soon as school got out today, it clouded up and started raining a few minutes after we got to the park.

How to be annoyed and laugh at the same time

Jackson(6yo): You're not making me and Mama happy

Danny(4yo): I'm making me happy

Starting Over

I seem to forget that I even have a blog.

Today I am going to basically start over here. I'm not going to delete any of my old posts, cuz I've done that before and regret not having those to look back on.

I'm not going to put any rules for myself here. No 'post everyday/week/month' type thing, no 'only family/knitting/pictures' type thing either. I think that might be part of the reason I don't keep this updated. I'm not sure where I want to go with this, so just don't do anything at all.

Today I started a couple of project 365's.

I am going to be taking a picture of my knitting everyday. Even if I hadn't made any progress on anything, I've got plenty of WIP.

I also started Project 365. I'm hoping this will get me to take more pictures and I'll start to learn a bit more as I go about taking good pictures. I know I don't have a great camera, it's pretty old by digital camera standards, but it's what I have to work with and it does work.
And I'm going to start taking a picture of the boys everyday. Doing whatever, just as long as they are both in the picture.

This is the one that I'll love going back and looking at. You never really notice them growing each day, but when you go back a couple of months, there is such a huge difference.
It'll also help me chronicle each day's events. Let us look back and go 'Oh yeah, we did ____ that day'

And hopefully a side effect of this will be me keeping the place alittle bit cleaner, since I don't want a mess to be shown in public.
