Saturday Sky and Fourth Grade Pressure

Saturday Sky at 8-ish:

The clouds are now gone, but it was fun to see some variety in our sky. Young Man and I are having a quiet day together. We disected an owl pellet and have a date to go to Target (where we will undoubtedly add to our Lego Bionicle collection).

Young Man is recovering from his first week of fourth grade. He says that Friday went the best of the four days and that there was too much pressure this week. Besides the new classroom and teacher, he was invited to a birthday party, and he has been the target of the PE teacher's interest to get him to join the flag football team. Yes, it was a rough week. It certainly started well!

Work for the parents continues to pile it on. In the knitting world, I have returned to the FLAK now that it is cool enough to stand to hold it on my lap. I'm almost finished with the first sleeve. All that moss stitch filler is starting to get to me!

How handsome your son is! Fourth grade seems to be a real turning point. I remember my son's fourth grade teacher saying it was the year of the big "R" for taking responsibility for their own work and efforts. Hope he has a great year. And mom and dad, too.

Yes, I agree with you on the Moss Stitch. Fortunately, for me, there is only a little bit on my St. Brigid sweater!
