In other news, we're moving. The where is still to be determined, but we put our notice in to vacate this house. It just costs way too much every month.
I've also started crocheting. It really helps to calm the tremors in my hands. Back when I had a piano, I would play scales for an hour or two every day, however, since we didn't bring the piano when we moved to King William, I haven't had anything for my hands to do. When my mom was here for Daniel's baptism, I asked her to show me some basic stitches, and now I'm crocheting all sorts of things. I do the usual hot pads and dishcloths, but I've also made a purse for Taylor, a tablet case for Thaddeus, and a rhinoceros for Daniel. I'm going to make Blayne something before she gets home, but I haven't decided on what. I know she'd love a puppy, but I don't necessarily think she needs another stuffed dog.
Beyond that, our summer is pretty low key. We're still working on our cub scout stuff. Last week, we started on artist. The kids mixed paint and learned about primary, secondary, and tertiary colors. We also visited the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and did their scavenger hunt. It was nice, because that made sure the kids visited the exhibits and really looked at the pieces. We'll be finishing up a few more pieces for our portfolios, then we'll be moving on to our scientist badge. I tell you what, if your kids are bored and you need something to do, the Webelos cub scout book is the way to go. Just follow along and you'll be busy little beavers.
