Today was a day of missed photo ops. First, I could have taken a picture of Mattey's homework left on the table after she was already on the bus. Second, the raw nose on the sick little boy. Third, the deer we saw on the way home from taking Mat her homework. Fourth, Meg getting another xray (her third set this year) on her achy foot. I'm sure the list could go on and on but I'll spare you.
Last night Mattey went with me to a service activity at church. The girls aged 8-11 performed a song for the women and were invited to stay for the rest of the evening. While there Mattey learned a new craft. Or a twist on something she's done before. Loom knitting. She took to it really fast. I had to help and then guide her a few times but then she was good to go.
She's been working on a newborn hat to donate to the hospital. She's so excited about being able to do this. After she finishes this hat she wants to make a hat for her baby cousin due in March. Then she wants to learn to really knit.
