This girl uses 100 short rows and connects the scarf at the ends to create the circle. I, on the other hand, preferred to make a chain, first, slip stitch the ends together to form a circle, ch 3, dc in each ch across, sl st in top of ch 3 and follow the rib stitch pattern from the video. I used one skein of yarn and crocheted 6 rows of the pattern stitch. When you start with a connected chain your scarf is seamless. It would've taken me at least 2 hrs max if I could find time to sit and relax that long! So I have to settle for one round here and one round there. This is how I get my stitchin' done! I'm off to another project, be back soon, I hope!

Clara did this movie last night right before Naomi arrived to pick me up. She is too cute! Did you see the way she noticed she was on camera she went away really fast? Hee-hee!

We made it across the lake! Now we've got to pick through the rest to find the best!
We've arrived at the Pumpkin Patch!, posted with vodpod
The kids enjoyed themselves as they rode the ponies at Lake View Farm. Logie was so excited, James loved feeling the soft mane of his little pony and Clara wanted to ride the largest, white pony. It was well worth the $6 each. The people who owned the ponies seemed to genuinely care for their animals so it went to some good-hearted people.
Instead of going back by boat we decided to hop aboard the train! The kids were all excited about going through the creepy tunnel full of scarecrows, skeletons, bats, witches & everything Halloween!
They're off! Clara, James and Logie head off through the corn maze at Lake View Farms aboard the Centipede Train made from old oil barrels! They loved this ride!

Tales From the First Grade-Day 2
James always has a story to tell after school. He tells his Daddy and I EVERYTHING that happened. When Clara was in the first grade and I'd ask her, "How was your day?" She'd say, "Good!" but NOT James, oh no! He lays it all out, word-for-word.
