One day at a time ,one week at a time...

I had hoped to post mid week but really didn't have any stitching to show and hoped I would get a little done this weekend. I managed to so read on...

First it's brag about the kids time...

Emma had her recital this week ( hockey Wednesday ) and she was just excellent. She loves musical theatre and her pieces sung at the recital reflected that. She wasn't crazy about the camera so this shot reflects that.

Ben has start Tae Kwon Do. He started the 15th of May. We thought it would be great exercise... He is doing really well. At Monday's lesson the instructor mentioned the house tournament , Phil came home and asked me if Ben was entering. I said no he's only been in this for a month why would we do that to him... At Wednesday's lesson I spoke with the instructor and he thought it would great for him to participate and see what a tournament was like... Fast forward to Sat am and juggling work , soccer and wee relapse of illness. Phil dropped Ben and I relieved him just before Ben was up to do compete. Ben stands when called introduces himself and begins... he does not go through to the gold round. He is called to complete for third. I am so proud as he is so strong and confident. The kids wins bronze. Ten kids in his age group and he is a month in and wins BRONZE!!!  I was teary and so very proud! CRAZY!

Ok on the stitching front...

Here is the latest pics...
This is my latest ornament. I am working on this at Ben's Tae Kwon Do. It's almost done.

This is an exchange project I am working on.

Phil has had an excellent father's day and Maggie is super stoked about school almost being finished. All in all life is getting back to normal.

Until next time

Bad blogger!

For those wonderful stitchers and family who read this blog I am very sorry for the lack of blog posts. I have thrown myself back into work and have not stitched a whole lot nor have I done much else. Not anything much worth blogging about.

On the health front I have been feeling a bit stronger everyday. YAY! I am still suffering shoulder pain when I over do it but slowly things are getting better. I am grateful.

We have been working on the yard today and Phil will be pleased as he has ACHIEVED something today. - Sorry family joke... We planted tomatoes and pumpkins along with Ben's Lilac tree. We also got some rock for the rock garden and have got most of spread. This would explain the sore shoulder and fatigue now.

The kids are good. Emma is on her final week of Into the Woods next week. YAY! It's been more work this time as she is crew and not cast = not as much fun for her or us. Ben is enjoying martial arts a lot. Maggie is off to a movie tonight with a "friend". Time just continues to march on. Em and Mags have a week left of school and Ben two. Where did this year go?

I have a busy week planned involving a concert , a play and work. I am hoping to start SLOWLY running as well so let see how that goes.

Until next time...
