Our pretty kitchen and I'm heated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, here is what I'm thankful for, our pretty new kitchen countertops isn't she nice? On the other hand as my kids at school say "I'm heated!". I was so excited because some of my homeroom students have been begging me to teach them to knit and today was going to be our big day. I brought in all my stuff, made forms for them and their parents to sign stating they would use the needles only to knit with. Now I thought I should let the principal for our house division in on what I was doing, well she told me no that the kids could do harm with them. She said it's nice that I wanted to but, no. I had to return to my homeroom to the kids excitedly asking me if I brought the goods well I got a little teary eyed. It just broke my heart. I guess these administrators don't get it that knitting could help them in other facets of their lives. I'm going to stew about it a little while then figure out what I'm going to do. I don't think I can let this one go.

My daring boy

My dad and Patti were here visiting recently and we took a trip to Silver Sands beach. Well my forever daring son was dead set on going for a dip even though it was a chilly day. He had a good time and I was wishing that I was in there with him too, suprisingly the water didn't feel too bad. In other news, we had our countertops installed today, yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Our kitchen almost looks complete, we just have to get the cabinet doors on, drawers in and a fridge. I cleaned windows all day today, who knew that vinegar and newspapers was great to clean them with, cheap too.
