Day of Service

Our family had a day of service last weekend cleaning up the shrubbery at Rockaway Beach.  It was a great experience beautifying an area that had been quite trashed.  

The rose bushes were killer---OUCH!

It took 3 young men to dislodge this tree--a great metaphor for life! Planting Seeds of faith is a lot easier than digging things up!  Elizabeth Eliot: Don't dig up in doubt, what you planted in faith!

First Day of School

Oh my goodness, I was so wrapped up in my own goings on I totally forgot that we had a first day of school! 4th and 7th grade...already?  Oh dear.

Look at how these girls are GROWING up!


We had our traditional Shake Shack lunch after the first half day of school....very delicious:

This one started the NEXT day and was beyond excited for the beginning of school!


I felt so bad about her sisters abandoning her, that I got the Pickle a kitchen so that she could spend the days cooking for me while we waited for them to return home.  I have eaten a LOT of wooden eggs so far.


We did some back to school shopping and loved our new looks on that Sunday after school started:

Pickle and the Bee: Rollerskating Edition


When I saw there were toddler Tuesday's at the roller skating rink in Brooklyn, I knew Pickle and the Bee had to give it a true.

What else can I possibly say? Dreams do come true.

I Knit: Baby Turbans

I know you have seen it before, but they turned out so cute with this cotton Tie Dye Yarn! I had a totally brain slip when I made this newborn turban with an adult(ish) pattern and just finished it as quick as I could into a toddler size....then I started over again and got the newborn version done just in time for the baby shower!



If only she would keep it on!

I Knit: Cable Hat

Some of my besties brought me some yarn to cheer me up during miscarriage 2014.  It was the perfect thing to distract me, and I literally knit this hat as I was going through it.  THANKS friends....I love the yarn, the pattern and how it turned out.







PS I am collecting scarves and hats for Love Scarf Project again this year (after taking a break last year for BUSKING FOR SANTA!) and I also collecting swatches for an epic Glass Posse yarn bomb.  Please send your donations to me!
