Owen_and_the_disappearing_needles_0 Gracie is much too busy being a teenager to send me her preferred picture for blog fodder!  So onto a bit more enthusiastic participant!  Cameron, my guitar loving rocker.  Cameron started playing the bass guitar in the fall and bought an electric guitar by himself for his 10th birthday.  He is doing really well with it and truly enjoying it.  He rocks out on Rush, The Police, Santana, and Deep Purple.  Mind you–I have very little clue as to what these songs are but I am learning…Black Magic Woman, Smoke on the Water.  It is a lot of fun!

Henry_hudson H is for Henry Hudson.  Cameron did a book report on Henry Hudson and the 4th grade did a Living History Museum.  Cameron was incredible.  Despite his short term memory issues–he was fantastic.  He stayed in character the whole time and looked fabulous!  His teacher’s daughter, who is in Gracie’s grade, said Cameron was the best! 

There was another post saved for this that included details about Gracie anOwen_and_the_disappearing_needles_2d why I am not knitting or reading but my knitting mojo has returned.  I am knitting the  Chevron Lace baby blanket from Vogue Knitting on the Go in Koigu from the stash.  Oh how I love to use stash.  The color is just so gorgeous that it will be put in the hope chest for some future grandchild.  We took Cameron and their friends to go see My Chemical Romance at the Garden last Friday.  That was fun.  My favorite song is Teenagers.

Owen_and_the_disappearing_needles_3 In sad news, Owen has disposed of all of my straight knitting needles, several pieces of jewelry, money, beads and goodness knows what else.  Kevin took him to the dentist on Friday and forgot to make sure our bedroom door was locked while on the phone.  I thought Owen was dumping my stuff down a small hole around the air conditioning duct but after having several holes put in the walls, floors and step–all that was found was 6 cents.  I am especially sad as some of the needles were my Owen_and_the_disappearing_needles_4 grandmothers…Lantern Moon needles…and antique needles  from France.  The hole has since been closed up and boxed in but there are other random spots in Owen_and_the_disappearing_needles_5 the house…who knows what lies beneath.
