Cruiser time

As I mentioned before, all the knitting girls have been getting cruiser bikes and I am such a joiner. So my parents bought me a pink cruiser for my birthday. Isn't it cute? All I need now is a bell and basket.

I rode down to the Keeper of the Plains today and spotted this stencil under a bridge. It's of Brad Pitt from Fight Club with the words "Revolt" and "In Tyler We Trust."

Summer is coming

I am addicted to Granny Squares and I don't know why. I have never been a crocheter, my loyalty lied with knitting but crocheting is opening up a whole new world of things I haven't mastered. The Granny Squares grow quickly and soon I have a beautiful pile of little squares begging to be something. I think crocheting is my new summer hobby.
Another summer hobby is bike riding. Yesterday the kids and I rode around for an hour on the paved bike route near the river. The weather was perfect, no wind and warm. All the knitters are getting new bikes for the summer and we might have to start our own biker gang, we just need a name. Wheels and Needles?

Hello, Old Friend

Wow, it's been a long time since I have blogged. Things have been quite intense with the student teaching this semester, but there's only 6 weeks till I graduate.

I am adding a couple of pictures with highlights from the last few months.

ST played club volleyball from December to March. They won two of the six tournaments they entered.

Over Spring Break, we spent the night in a cabin at Cheney Lake. We cooked in a dutch oven over an open fire, took a hike, and played frisbee. The kids had fun building a fire in the fire pit.
TT has been working hard on growing a mustache and it's finally coming in ;-) He's also entering a Jiu Jitsu tournament in May. I'm nervous but he has great take-downs and arm bars so hopefully he will bring home a Samurai Sword.
