This & That

I can't believe that I haven't blogged for the last 8-9 days! Who ever said that summer vacation is a time to relax didn't have my son! I mean that in the best of ways. As usual I am keeping him busy.

Two Saturdays ago we spent most of the day at Hawaiian Falls. Sam and I both had a great time and I also had a lot of time reading my book! It's so nice that he's now to the age that I'm comfortable letting him go off to play. This water park is big enough for him to be entertained but small enough for me to be at peace when he's out by himself.

Last Monday night and tonight were my first knitting classes. I'm teaching up at our local activities center and have a great bunch of girls that I'm teaching. They are catching on so quickly and I'm already so proud of them. They have learned how to cast on, knit stitch and the purl stitch so far. I have two more weeks with them but already some of them are talking about taking the next classes that I'm offering. Speaking of knitting....guess who learned how to knit? That's right...Sam! After we got home from the first night of teaching he asked if I could teach him how. You would not believe how fast he caught on! Much quicker than all of the girls in my class. This past Saturday he even attended the World Wide Knit In Public Day with me at the Kimball Art Museum! Such the sport.

This past Thursday we all went to the Dallas World Aquarium. It was truly amazing. We had originally planned on going to the Dallas Zoo but the rain that was supposed to stop didn't and we changed our plans. I'm so glad that we did too! It is an amazing aquarium and we will go again.

We've started our free summer movies at the local theaters as well. We get to see a different one on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. This week we're planning on going back to Hawaiian Falls and on Saturday we'll be spending the day in Austin. Fun, Fun, FUN!

Sam looks awesome knitting! I just think that it is fantastic when kids take on learning a hobby like this! My 7 year old son has talked about learning to stitch. We will see!

I wondered what y'all did instead of the zoo. I've never been to the aquarium, but I've heard good things about it.

I still love the fact that Sam is knitting and loving it. It's great that he's not too "macho" for that kind of thing, unlike David.

Oh man! I wish we lived closer together so I could take your knitting class.

You are having a busy summer! It looks like a lot of fun! :)

I think the DWA is wonderful, and not to be missed. I know you had a good time there. Sam is so cute knitting that scarf, too.
