I usually make "fish biscuits" out my zucchini cookies, but my fish cookie cutter is packed so Mom had a moose cookie cutter so this is what my kids came home from school to!

Adam's first day of 1st grade was Thursday. I can't believe how early we started this year! I was totally shocked by it as I really thought I'd have more time to decide where to send him, based on where we bought a house (which we haven't yet). So I just guessed and he's at Machetanz. Hopefully, I won't be moving him halfway through the year, but if I do, I do!
As you can see from the pictures, we got here almost two weeks ago. We are still house hunting and settling in, but Ray started his new job on Monday and Adam started first grade on Thursday (it started that early, crazy huh?). So we've been nuts, but I'll update if we find a house!

Hauling out boxes
Our loading crew...we had lots of good help!
The boys spent the last night on the air mattress!
Just a little trash...we donated what we could, took what we could....it just seems moving makes trash....the desks (as expected) got picked up by someone as did most of the furniture we put on the curb
Doing work...nowhere else to sit!
We did a major yard sale - most kids stuff and furniture before we left. We moved quite a lot of stuff! We ended up with two car loads to Goodwill and one to Catholic Charities (kids' stuff)
Grandpa helping out....
The yard sale queens!
So we got the baby stuff out to sell....they had to drive of course...just a little big, aren't they?

We are up in Michigan visiting Ray's dad right now. We've had some great weather!
The boys were cannonballing into the pool!
It wasn't that hot today so after pool fun, they had to go warm up at the bonfire!

A friend who is pregnant with her first boy wanted a soccer hat as they go to a lot of soccer games (her husband coaches). Turns out soccer hats are HARD. This was the easiest pattern I could find, and it is actually a crochet pattern. I think the final product is cute, but I can't say I'm thrilled with it either.
So I actually made two base hats (you make the base then make the pentagons to stich on). The first was the first size, in my opinion, but it turns out I was doing my single crochet wrong (I don't single much!). So I redid right...and it is huge. But it'll fit him eventually...and I gave her both hats only one just is plain (the little one).
