Stitch by Stitch

 I finished it!!! It is warm and soft and I am so glad to have it. It is not perfect. It shows my growth and how I improved in consistency and tension. This thing is big enough to cover our whole family when we watch a movie. it can fit a full bed.  I did not know what I signed up for starting this blanket. I am excellent at doing pearl stitches. I can't do anything else but if you need a pearl. I am your women.
 I started this when I was listening Anna Karenina. I listened to heart of darkness, binged watched Gilmore Girls and lots of other stuff.
While knitting this I read "To Kill a Mockingbird" and Jem talked about old ladies knitting blankets in July and not understanding why they were doing it. I do!

Summer flew by. School is in. Clara lucked out and got the fun teacher that everyone says, "Oh, He is the fun one!" John got a great teacher that is a perfect fit for him as well. This is going to be a great year!

Love That Boy

 He is 7. It is true.

Love That Boy
By, Walter Dean Myers

Love that boy,
like a rabbit loves to run
I said I love that boy
like a rabbit loves to run
Love to call him in the morning
love to call him
'Hey there, son!'

He walk like his Grandpa,
Grins like his Uncle Ben.
I said he walk like his Grandpa,
And grins like his Uncle Ben.
Grins when he's happy,
When he sad, he grins again.

His mama like to hold him,
Like to feed him cherry pie.
I said his mama like to hold him.
Like to feed him that cherry pie.
She can have him now,
I'll get him by and by

He got long roads to walk down
Before the setting sun.
I said he got a long, long road to walk down
Before the setting sun.
He'll be a long stride walker,
And a good man before he done.
