Historic House and Independent Children

May 28, 2008 at 9:13 am 3 comments

I’m falling a little behind on the abc-along, so I’m combining H and I into one post! My mom came up to visit last Thursday. That’s always fun, because she likes doing things that N doesn’t such as reading knitting magazines, drinking micro-brew beer, and visiting the Caddie Woodlawn house. It was a gorgeous day, perfect for visiting historic houses:

I was kind of disappointed that it was not an actual museum, just an old house, but it was still fun.

The kids had their own agenda as always. They’re very independent!

The Caddie Woodlawn house is in a park outside of Menomonie. It’s a few miles down Highway 25 from Downsville. We stopped in Downsville to get directions. Goozle fell asleep, so he missed the cute little coffee shop where grandma got them cookies

Girly had fun running around though

And in the midst of all this fun, I managed to knit…2 whole socks!

2! And then I put them on Girly’s feet while she was sleeping. đŸ™‚

My very first PAIR of socks!
And on a side note, Congrats K on graduation and happy birthday today!

    Hi, I think your kids are adorable, and your pair of socks too!
    I was thinking of seeing the sights that are local because once P and I were looking for the fishing museum on the way to EC and found out it was an Adult Store now!!! Keep knitting while its cooler…I had fun! ( ;

    I thought you said you couldn’t knit socks. They looked pretty good to me. Congrats! Do you want your yarn back? Please say no. You may get them back some day in the form of your foot.
