Aww…Scooby has his paw resting on the laptop and I was just moved to share.  A D post is brewing in my head.  Specifically "Daughters".  Being one and having one.  In other very exciting news, I toured Owen’s new school (he starts in July).  I was really quite delighted.  It is a genuine school building which is very exciting considering he has been in an office park for the past 5 years.  The very best news–besides the gym and adaptive PE teacher–is he will not require a 1:1 aide.  This has been one of my greatest concerns and cause for many sleepless nights.  Life cannot be 1:1 and I don’t want him dependent on an aide that way. 

Knitting.  I absolutely hate everything I am knitting right now.  I started a blanket on the trip for Kevin’s coworkers baby to be named "Caty".  Colors aren’t working.  Started a second one in Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton.  Not liking that one either.  Anyone have any suggestions for a summer baby blanket for a well-named baby? 

A little funny story…Gracie and I stopped by the stationary store of an ex-boyfriend today.  The very first boyfriend.  He gave her some sweet advice not to think your first boyfriend is THE love of our life.  Needless to say, Gracie has moved on to his best friend.  Just as I had moved on to his best friend in college.  Some things never change.

Dsc02596All in all a very relaxing trip.  We canceled more things than we actually did.  Golf was canceled twice, tennis skipped–even a spa treatment was canceled.  Pool, beach, pool.  On the excursion day we kayaked and snorkeled.  I made it to the gym 4 times and swam laps.  The food was pretty good too.  I think I only put on 4lbs and the chocolate brownie with ice cream was worth it!  Highlights were Miss June’s and Montpelier Inn.  The biggest highlightDsc02644
was spending time with Kevin.  The kids did well with Grandma…in fact Owen has requested, "I want Grandma" twice now.  Grandma has now informed us that she is ready to do it for the next 5 years!  Kevin better get cracking at work!

I worked on a baby blanket for Kevin’s coworker who is giving birth to a girl to be named, Caty.  I was basing it on 100 Afghan Squares to Knit but I am not feeling it.  Back to the drawing board.
