Finishing Socks (cont'd) 

There are certain subtle mannerisms with each of our three kids that are identical amongst them. Whether it's a slight twinkle in their eye when they're laughing, the curve of a lip when trying to be sly, or the simple shrug of the shoulder.

Each time I see the characteristic in one that is similar in their sibling, I can't help but smile and think "how sweet, you remind me of your brother when you do that." or "you're so much like your sister."

It's at times such as that that I'm so grateful to have been blessed with three great kids and I want to give them each a big squeeze.

I must remember that feeling when it's early on a school day morning and someone doesn't want to get out of bed.

#3 will be coming home for a family wedding next week and we'll have a whole week to spend with him before he heads back to the east coast.

Still moving along on the self-imposed sock marathon. The second pair were completed last week.

Sock #1 of the third pair is going a little slower than planned. I took a little jaunt to Vegas at the start of the week and, well really, who goes to Vegas to knit? Not even me. Although, time spent in flight was somewhat productive. However, I've since ripped back the heal because I didn't like the looks of it.
