I don't have much to say. I'm very excited about our third grade curriculum and our pre-K curriculum (which is: teach him to read). I'm knitting and sewing quite a bit. I'm trying to keep the weeds to a minimum out in the garden while also trying to keep everything watered - futile to be sure, but I try still. My grandfather, my gardening hero, was raking leaves in his front yard one day while more leaves showered all around him. "How do you stay motivated, Papa?" I asked. He replied that he took it one leaf at a time. Even if two or three leaves took its place, he wouldn't have to pick up each leaf more than once.
