day 21- pretty pattern

day 21- pretty pattern
I love these hexagons. I have been working on this afghan since Spring. I wanted something a little brighter and happier on the back of my couch for the summertime. (I'll admit I was over ambitious thinking I would be done by summer, lol) I love how there are intense colors in the middle, but it doesn't look overwhelming. It's gonna be great when it's done... well, I hope it will :)

My bosses are getting a squeeze box for my classroom. (No, not an accordion, follow the link. I didn't know what it was either.) Anyway, a HUGE part of my day today was spent converting youtube videos into mp3's, so I will have plenty of music and stories for my kids. I got almost every story Eric Carle and Dr. Suess wrote, and I got some other familiar classics like Stellaluna. In my search for stories, I stumbled across this one. I think I love it, but I'll have to see what the kids think. I let Justin listen to it, and he said he couldn't believe the dad's reaction lol.

 The Tiger Who Came to Tea
And I found two amazing new (to me) kid's songs both are by Eric Herman.

The Elephant Song

Blackbeard, Bluebeard, and Redbeard

So I hope you enjoyed these videos, with your kids or maybe just with your inner child :) After downloading, downloading, downloading.... all... day... it was really nice to just sit and work on my afghan again.

AND- here is one more bonus video. This is my number one "adult" jam of the moment. Gotta love Ingrid Michaelson!

 You and I

Ok, my puppy wants to play! Ta-ta for now.

  1. That all sounds like so much fun. Wouldn't it be a perfect world if kids were just calm and logical? Sigh...I can dream. Anyway, I hope they appreciate what you've put together!

    Side note...have you noticed those neon greens in your layout are...hard to read? And the dates are too. Just sayin'........
