Today is a sad day around here. It is the second anniversary of the murders at Virginia Tech. Alex lost a close friend that day. They graduated from high school together and were good friends. Our thoughts are with Michael Pohle's family and the families that lost a love one that day. Michael was barricading the door to the classroom. That was the kind of person he was.
Unfortunately, this happens too often lately.
On the brighter side, it is going to be sunny and warmer!! Yeah! I am soooo tired of being cold.
We had a very nice Easter. It was nice to have all the boys at one table at the same time. We colored eggs although Nathaniel decorated plastic ones. Lithuanians have a tradition of challenging one another to cracking each other eggs. Alex won this year. Nathaniel won the vegan division--he was the only one in it. He made his vegan main entree and cruelty free mashed potatoes (but isn't mashing them cruel?) And then for fun, we helped Nathaniel make buttons. Never a dull moment in this house!
There isn't much on the needles. I frogged the socks I was knitting. Very easy pattern, but it just wasn't coming out right. So, they are resting for now. Finished a foster child sweater and now making a hat for it. And a mouse is being made for Jeff's birthday.
