These things they do

This weekend:  first baseball tournament of the season for Gabe and Keats, and first nine holes of golf for Larkspur (third for Seth.)

These things they do, they make me happy too.

Beatrix, Silas the Cat, and a Leksak

Well, Beatrix didn’t hesitate to tell me that she would have preferred green, and she also objects to the lack of buttons on this sweater.  I think it’s really cute, if not a bit too big.  But, big is always good when you are knitting for growing children.

If you are new here, and didn’t realize that we have both a child and a cat named Silas, you can read that story here.  Silas the cat is the only pet from our first year of marriage and college years that is still with us.  He’s an old man now, a very sweet old man.
