i will not use 25 pieces of toilet paper because of my weight issue, i will also try to shed weight by eating more organic foods unlike eclairs
I did not use my electric fun machine :)
Today, I am putting the finishing touches on my oxygen making machines. Sadly, it needs trees to fuel it. Maybe this is a bit pointless but it's the thought that counts.

We learned about how Taiko orignated, it's migration to the U.S., and the instruments themselves. This group was pretty eclectic...utilizing instruments from all over the world. Aside from the taiko, we also heard a drum from Korean and the didjeridoo from Australia.

It is made with a faggot stitch. (Don't ask me about the name. I have no clue. I'm assuming it meant something else once upon a time. British origin maybe? Perhaps it was a smoking scarf...as in a smoking jacket?) I used this pattern. The yarn was an acrylic 4 ply ww, variegated. The needles were size 9.
I'll post the finished finished finished piece later...when it's finished. Right now I have two more knitted things I'm working on. Plus all the other crocheted thing. *sigh* So many projects...so little time.
As some of you may know, we've been attending a class called "Patches". It is organized by a homeschool mom through Yahoo Groups. The kids attending are all homeschoolers under the age of 5. The classes are once a week for 12 weeks. Each class meeting has a theme. After the activities for the day are done, the children "earn" a patch.
Patches earned so far:
Sewing - made a banner to put patches on
- Gardening - planted bulbs
- Insects - made artwork of bees and butterflies
- Seasons - made artwork representing seasons
- Ocean Life - made crab and octopus, went to eat at Captain Kidd's, visited Sea Laboratory
And some photos:

This was his first time having to actually kick the ball with some controlled direction. Kick and run and kick towards a goal. Kick and run and kick around the cones. I think he did excellent for his first time. Am I stressing "first time"?
I am so proud of him. He was very excited. He thought he would be the winning player. I told him that I would be proud if he won or lost...and that the important part was that he tried his best and had fun!
None of us know the actual rules of soccer, so I guess we'll all learn together. Today is the first day of practice. We will get to meet our coach and the other players who have been selected to be on this team. More to come later. For now...some pictures of tryouts:
Wonder what soccer players have under their shorts
Parents discovered bald spot.
Upon questioning...it is revealed Z decided to have fun with scissors.
