And so it Begins

AHHHHH! School begins in the morning and I have survived the summer months.... We all have. This summer has been exceptional when it comes to progress. Hillard is finally calling me Mommy.... It has taken nearly 8 years, but paitence has paid off and I get to hear my sweet sons voice once in awhile. This summer he has grown physically and has made great strides devlopmentally... Don't ask me specifics, I just know he is different somehow. A certain maturity he was lacking before. Parents of older autistics always told me that their children seemed to "change" somehow when they reach 7 or 8 years old. I can see what they mean now.

We will join the YMCA tommorrow morning. Not to join a community, not to get in shape, but Brandon to get the chance to play with other kids! Being apart of the community and getting in shape are just side affects of Brandons social growth. He is very bored here at home and mothers-day-out programs are expensive. I don't mind taking a few aerobics classes and getting in shape while Brandon learns the Do's and Dont's from peers ;)

Mama Llama Excitment:
I was approched by the Knit at Night Guild of Houston to do a demonstration of dyes, the process and techniques etc. I am so excited I've already got 3 pages written up of informative stuff to show and talk about. (without revealing any Mama Lama secrets of course)

The same day, I was asked to be apart of the first indie dyer Sock Club organized by indie dyers! It was such an honor to be asked and I joined the Co-Op immediately. Here is a link if you want any information on it. I plan to join as a participant as well. You pay bi-monthly instead of all at once....I like that part ;)

Y'all take care!

Long time no Blog!

Wow! has it been that long since I've posted? Sorry guys, time sure does fly by when you're busy in life. Here is whats been up:

Las Vegas: What can I say it was a blast! We stayed in the Bellagio in a 2 bedroom 2,000 sq foot suite! Thats bigger than my house! Carmen and I had a full spa day, We went to see Cirque De Solie's "O" (4th row center), Star Trek the Experience, and lots of late night romantic meals. One of our meals was on the terrace at "Olives" and we sat at the edge where we could watch the Bellagio Water Show every fifteen minute just a few feet away from us! That was my favorite meal in Las Vegas so far.
Here is a link to my sisters photo page dedicated to the trip

Mom and Dads 50th Wedding anniversary Celebration:

What a wonderful weekend! we were run off a bit early by a Tropical Storm ( thank goodness mother nature decided to send it AFTER the party).... It was a lot of fun! All my sisters and their families, and my brother and his family. It was a lovely party and a fun getaway at the beach too.

Autism Yarn:
Should be debuting at woolgirl.com anytime soon. Wanted to give you a heads up just incase you were waiting for it.

Fall Sock exchange:
I got a letter in the mail from Amy. Its not a chain letter, but similar, I send the person at the top of the list some beautiful sock yarn and move Amy up on the list and put myself down so i can get yarn ;)....Then I mail a copy to 6 willing friends. Are you interested in recieving this fun letter? I can think of 4 people that are good for it, but I need two more people! just send me an email to catherinekerth AT hotmail DOT com if you're interested!

Brandon is nagging me to play, bot 2 more days! can I keep my sanity.... why is it the last month of summer kids forget how to entertain themselves? gotta go! :)
