Hey. Since my last post we moved (twice). First to Greenfield, MA.

Where I homeschooled H for third grade and put C in part-time pre-school

Now he’s in his second year of preschool, full-time nowadays.

C first day pk

And H is in fourth grade, both at the local town elementary.

Triumphant!

H joined Cub Scouts (he’s in his second year now),

In spite of me and BSA not seeing eye to eye on everything, H learned to make a tent (of sorts) with a tarp. Yay!

Bought a house in Northfield, MA with outbuildings and land.

Yay! Now I need to replace the decrepit cattle fencing with good sheep fencing and we're good to go!

Went to visit Oregon and back to Wanakena.

We were so happy to be eaten by the giant skeletal shark.

OK, this isn't actually in Wanakena, it's Blue Mtn Lake, but that is an ADK chair, so it counts, right? And those are Wanakena kids there, too.

Got about 65% through writing a thesis.

Brad has a job at Deerfield Academy.

I’m looking for one. A job, not an academy.

In the meantime, I started weaving like crazy on small looms like frame looms, tri-pin looms, backstrap and inkle. And some tatting.  Did one craft show with it this past weekend, which didn’t go particularly well, but being a glutton for punishment, I’m signed up for three more and am looking to get into a fourth.

Hokay, that’s about the re-cap. All I’m likely to get to, anyway.

So, moving right along. Today I met Laverne, esteemed teacher of backstrap weaving. I bought her book, but remained nearly monosyllabic, as usual when meeting someone I “know” from online, failing to even help them make the connection with my own online identity. I’m very stupid that way.
