Two weeks of catch up

Life is busy...very busy. I realize that it is okay to let one's hobbies suffer when there is a baby crying. My knitting is painfully slow and my grad school efforts are NOT honor's material. I have eight weeks of weeds in my garden. I won't even go into the pile projects at work . is all worth it. I really barely notice.

Here are some pics from the last couple of weeks. Its unreal how fast the little guy is growing up.

The first is of bubby with his BFF Finn.
Second was taken at the Hamilton's last weekend.
Third is at a wedding a couple of days ago.

Bubba at Work

It is Saturday morning and Bubba and I are at the WATER Center. There is an eagle scout here working on his project - he is identifying the trees in Herman Hill Park so that we can create a guide book for visitors to use. He recruited about 15 folks to come in and help him this morning with the park-wide identification. There may be some "truth checking" that I need to do, but his teams are doing a great job.

Pat is out at Brian's bachelor party for the weekend so the little Bub and I are working together this morning. I am so thankful that my eagle scout brought his little sisters - they are awesome babysitters. I also like to get the baby used to being held by others. We want to keep him as socialized as possible.

Here is a pic of the girls taking him out to feed the ducks.

Yahoo! I'm finally "invited" to the beta version of Ravelry!


This past weekend was the Becoming and Outdoors Woman program. We had a great turnout! There were close to 120 ladies and most of them were first-timers.

This was my tenth year to teach the backpacking and orienteering classes for the event. I just can't get over how happy everyone seemed over the weekend. Maybe it was the weather. The only rough part of the weekend was that I am still down in the back. Hiking across the prairie and rolling under barb-wire fences has not helped either. Hopefully I'll be able to stand up straight soon - I have a prescheduled backpacking trip on the 13th!!
