Multiple Projects Begin!

I've never been good at keeping my focus. I have enjoyed the work I've been doing on the log cabin afghan. I'll post a pic soon.

It took several false starts and a number of answers from the Crochet Liberation Front ladies, but I think I get it now. The instructions for this basic pattern aren't great (from a technical writer's point of view, anyway), but I figured out the first mystery. We'll see what happens next. Maybe I'll start joining the monthly sock CAL!

He's doing so many new things and he loves to play school when we are at home or in the car. It's one of our new activities on weekends, too.
