First Day of School

Joaquin's first day of school.  Finally posting this photo, a tad late, but still nice.

Yarn Along

Christmas morning, Joaquin was wiggly with excitement as he carefully presented the gift he had purchased for me at the Children's Store during his school's Winter Faire.  Each year, they create a magical store that only children may shop in.  When they enter the store, they are paired up with an older child who helps them to shop.  They may buy items using pre-purchased tickets and this has more meaning to them than money because they know just how many tickets are needed for a treat from the Pocket Person or to see the puppet show or to make a craft.  Joaquin was so excited to buy something he knew I would love and he told his little tale of each step he went through to buy it and that it cost FOUR TICKETS!!!  He was so full of love and excitement.  I treasure these dear little wooden knitting needles with their charming acorn tops. I am happily knitting a couple of much-needed wash cloths for our home.  Joining Ginny today...
