I may be absent for awhile.....as I generally rely on pictures to carry me through this blog. I'm not much of a wordsmith.
I spent the day with Sylvia and Ayla stringing wooden beads (and anything they could find with a hole) on laces and threading lacing animals. Sylvia learned how to tie a bowline, a clove hitch, and two half hitch knots from The Book of Knots that we checked out from the library, but alas, I cannot share with you the cute pictures I took of them doing these things :(

She loves to tie knots, that girl. I have found the dining room chairs all tied together with T-shirt strips, and my dresser drawers all knotted together with thick rope, and all manner of things tied to other things lately. I think I'll get her some cheap nylon rope and let her make a big maze/obstacle course in the living room. Maybe by then I'll have my camera situation figured out :) Until then, I'll still be visiting your blogs and such, but it may be awfully quiet here.
