A big HELLO blogland. I've been meaning to catch up on all my favorite blogs...sigh...but Ken works from home now and is on "my" computer with my Favorites.

I've been keeping myself busy with the kids. We're having a busy summer and I don't see it easing up anytime soon. I squeezed in a few hours to make Farmgirl this western shirt (Suitability #3230)for riding lessons. It was a cinch to sew up and turned out quite nice. This is the practice one with boring fabric. I'm going to make it up in some nice euro funky colors for her too. I have some gorgeous Oilily with huge red cabbage roses on teal. That horse is Keeto... he was like a huge puppy. I swear he would've climbed into Farmgirl's lap and snuggled her if he could!

Butch and Jedi had their last soccer game today. It was a fun season but I can't say I'm not glad I won't have to drive that extra day. Here they are with their bobble head trophies.

Jedi ended the season with a goal. Here he is so proud!

The next two weekends I'll be busy with craftshows, my last two of the season. I'll be stocking my etsy store soon with a bunch of aprons after that. I'll be offering a discount to my blog friends too!

job change


I didn't realize being a driver for 3 children could be so tiring. We're already gone 3 nights a week and we're only in soccor and riding currently. We'll be adding hockey and dance in a few weeks. That's with Farmgirl and Jedi in 2 events each and Baby in 1. I think next season we'll be limiting it to one activity each.

We received our Konos Obedience unit book yesterday. Konos looks like it's going to be really fun for the kids. We've been doing a little school throughout the summer so hopefully it won't be too hard to get back into full swing.
