Amazingly I survived!
It was a pretty good day. We had writer’s workshop and built our love list which is simply a bank of writing ideas each kid does.
We tackled two math drills and finished our writing about Rocks and Rings. It was like pulling teeth to get any writing about this from the kids!
This afternoon we brainstormed places in our community and played outside since it was sunny.
Not bad and I didn’t have to raise my voice:). You could definitely tell the children had had four days off though!
I had a workout with Lyndsay after school and had to do:
Lunges with front raise, lunges with lateral raise, thrusters, plank jacks,
I was desperately trying to get my toque done before trivia, but had to leave with three rows to go. I want to do this pattern again and put a band on it. That will be next.
My latest sweater- Date Night – a free pattern from Knitty. It turned out to be super easy though it took me enough tries to get it done. I ended up with less than a yarn of yarn leftover!
Oh and here’s the toque- Irish Hiking Beanie by Knit2Purl2 – a free pattern on Ravelry. I love the pattern and it was a quick knit. I want to do another and have a different ribbed band.
It was just two of us tonight and we agree that when we know something, we know it, but when we don’t know it, we can’t even make a good guess.
Here’s what we knew tonight:

Ok I’m off to bed, have fun!
