Chicken pox?

My dear little girl may have the chicken pox.  She has already had a challenging week in her strong attempt to get through her first week back to school.  She was vaccinated, so it shouldn't be as bad as I had it as a kid.  My sister and I had it together during a winter snow storm.

Thankfully I have some great prescription anti-itch cream on hand.  We only had the pink chalomine lotion when I was a kid, which didn't help at all.  I often had sore muscles as a kid and relied on Absorbine Junior to get relief.  I thought it would also resolve my chicken pox itch.  I screamed and cried until my mom gave in, the screamed and cried because it stung so much.

After a brief staffing, we all decided to shorten eldest's day.  He can now decide to stay for lunch or come home.  Hoping this is temporary, but better than a home bound program.  Crocheting a rainbow blanket to keep me cheery.....post coming.

Summer's End

One more week and the kids go back to school.  My stomach is already in knots.  Three kids with special needs presents a host of challenges.  This year, I feel resided.  I am more accepting of letting the process flow than fighting the process and trying to make it what it "should" be.

So why the knots in my stomach?  I'm still knew to going with the flow of acceptance and it's uncomfortable.  There are so many variables to contend with when it comes to these beautiful children who have such a difficult time with the learning process.  It's as if they dropped like angels from the sky with their own hidden mysteries and complex beauty.

At times I realize that I cannot protect them from the world forever.

Working on acceptance and enjoying their presence in my life.

Post Christmas

It's 3 days post-Christmas and one day till Little 9's birthday.  I have found a wonderful quote that I am trying to past here.  Need to figure out how to get it here.  I will get it here eventually.  It's so beautiful.  I also want to upload the wrist warmers I'm working on.  They are so Christmassy.  I am hoping to send them to my sister in CT, but not sure if she'll like the color.

Oh, look!!  I did it.  I got it from another Blogger blog, http://womenencouraged.org/.  It's a wonderful blog!!  I found it through http://mockingbirdhillcottage.com.   Another blog that I read every day for inspiration.  Now to go get the one wristlette that is done and put it here.....

And here it is!  The red part is from this pattern:  www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L10158.html?nolmag es=.  If the link doesn't work just go to www.lionbrand.com andlook for Pattern #:  L 10158!

I embellished the wrister by crocheting a single crochet all the way around.  Then on the next row I did a ch2, then 4dc into that same spot, then 3 single crochets, ch2, etc. until finished in the round.  I call it my Mrs. Santa Claus wrister.   I will post the other once finished.  Bye for now!
