Knitting, Reading, & Such




(Joining Ginny for Yarn Along).

We start homeschooling next week, with the start of September.  After a stretch of very cool days, and the wonderful earlier nightfalls, I’m really feeling it.  The urge to organize, to clean the nooks & crannies, to get started on the next phase.

I’m nearly done with Gabriel’s adorable squirrel sweater, and this is the start of Ella’s bright pink Honey cardigan.  A good time of year for knitting, to be sure.

We’re starting our second grade year with Native American creation stories & animal stories, including ones from On the Trail Made of Dawn, and Native American Games & Stories.  It’s also a great month for many beautiful children’s books, including Rough-Face Girl, All the Colors of the Earth, and My Granny Went to Market: A Round the World Counting Rhyme.

I’m also really excited about, and going to be using a lot from, the two books Games for Reading and Games for Math.  how did I not know about these gems before?  I don’t know, but I’m happy to have them now.

In other news, our tomatoes have been a little slow to get cranking, but I put up the first batch of salsa today.  Very satisfying.  I also pruned the raspberries this week – the first time EVER that I’ve actually done it in the fall, when you’re supposed to.

    Best wishes as you transition into your fall school schedule Adrie. I love The Rough-Face Girl. It is such a beautiful story. I look forward to seeing the finished squirrel sweater and the honey cardigan.
