the fun, wooly & biggest loser

                                           {papa and trooper playing games}

my dad flew in from CA for a visit and we were so excited to see him!!  our visit was cut short because papa became under the weather.  but, we sure had fun while we could!

in other news, the girls and i are learning how to knit. boo has mastered the loom and has started using needles.  scout can knit circles around me!  i have to admit, it's like making something with string and two chopsticks.  we are blessed with a great group of gals to learn from!

 and during out last class someone brought in their spinning wheel!  again, scout was a natural spinning the prettiest wool...

while mine was a bunched up squirrely mess...sigh.  the older you get well...

our fun-filled wild and wooly days also included me volunteering at a run to raise money and awareness for child abuse prevention.  captain david jones, a contestant on the "biggest loser" popped in to give a little speech.  now, i probably was the only person there who has never even seen the show {one is greatly outnumbered when you don't watch TV} but i admire the commitment and hard work it takes to be on the show.  captain jones mentioned the emotional part of losing weight which i think rings true.  {cheeseburger anyone?} it was nice of him to come out, he was a little under the weather as well.

anyway, we never know who we will see or what we will be doing from day to day...

and i wouldn't change a thing!


  1. Oh I do hope your Dad is feeling better that is too bad he had to leave early. Oh your kids are doing wonderful. Take care. Hug B

  2. Looks like a lot of fun! And I think it's pretty cool that you saw David Jones!!!
