I’m in the process of sewing pieces for the shop; however, I ran into a snag — I’m all out of Susie Mey clothing labels. Ahhh! I’m hoping my shipment arrives soon! Stay tuned for some quaint little baby things.
Sheep + Wool Festival.
It’s tomorrow, yaay! I’ve literally waited 2 years to attend this! Soooo looking forward to meeting and seeing shepherds in action, hand-spun yarn, spinning classes, folk + bluegrass music, the sheep to shawl contest, etc. Maybe I’ll even get to shear a sheep, who knows!?! : ) My festival experience and photos to come!
The Little One.
She’s been feeling under the weather these last 2 weeks. Last week was a fever and really painful ear infection — poor girl almost had to go to the emergency room because of the pain. This week it’s been a bad cold, congestion and coughing. One thing that does makes her feel better is watching Dave and the Giant Pickle. As parents, Greg and I are at a crossroads regarding having a TV in the home. We are not much TV watchers, so we don’t feel like we’re missing anything. But when it comes to our kids, we’re not sure how much TV we want our kids seeing. I don’t know how practical it would be to not have a TV — it’s possible, but practical? While most things on TV are not child appropriate, there are educational shows/videos out there which are age appropriate.
We’ve been particular about Dhara watching purposeful TV if she does watch TV– thus far, the only thing she’s seen is Dave and the Giant Pickle — which to us has biblical significance [David + Goliath]. She’s watched it over and over. While it does give me a break to get things done around the house, I want to be disciplined about how much TV I let her watch. These are just some thoughts I’ve recently been mulling over since she’s at an age that she can watch television. Any thoughts would be appreciated from parents “who’ve been there, done that”. Sorry for the low quality photos, these are from my cell phone.
