i'm really happy with how the kids' sweaters have turned out. i'm also well relieved that they are finished before the kal deadline (many thanks to the wife who sews buttons on for me. i don't love sewing buttons.) i may have already started a sweater for myself, with high hopes that i may just sneak it in. but time and circumstance will tell. and in case you were wondering, the wife's sweater is getting on well, too. more on both of these anon.
we hadn't been to the river since before we went camping. today's leisurely visit through our favourite and familiar stomping grounds seemed to be just what we needed to reconnect as a family before the boy's school year officially begins.
have a fantastic first week of september!
