What's goin' on....

Bad blogger alert - yes, I know...high time for an update!!!

Brayden is loving his classes and his new teacher who is also new to the school.  He seems to be hanging with quite a few grade 5 girls this year - not sure how I feel about that!!!  There seems to be a different girl at the house everyday after school (just neighborhood kids) and a few more "play date" offers everyday!  He has a costume party tomorrow afternoon at the theater and truth be told, I neither have the costume nor the present yet!! UGH!!! :( 

Well, last Saturday morning was a gong show.  I had the alpaca show and as well, hockey try outs - the final day where Brayden had to meet with the coach and a parent.  Yes, I had booked myself in two places at once.  Actually I was supposed to teach a class that day too, but thankfully I was able to postpone it.  As expected, Brayden did not make the team but that's okay...I wasn't disappointed one bit.  I think we're more keen on the house league anyway.  A lot less travel and a lot less politicking in the stands (from what I hear anyway)!  Looking forward to the regular season getting started later this month.  Brayden is also in Cub Scouts this year - or supposed to be.  I'm a little miffed that they are late in contacting us as the year has already started, but I managed to garner a number from one of Brayden's little friends so I'll be calling first thing Monday morning to see what the heck is going on.  They cashed my cheque for $150 earlier this summer, so I know he's registered!!  Not impressed so far as he was supposed to be in the parade last weekend!!! :(  Anyway - on a positive note, my alpaca Popcorn did AMAZING in the show.  He came in second in his class, which was the biggest class in the show!! Whooooot!!! That is amazing - great potential for the coming years if I can keep him healthy!! :)  I kind of wish I would have entered Brutis now too, but I'm happy with Popcorn's results.  That put our farm, Gleneden Alpacas, on the map anyway!!! It's quite an honor to place - especially this being my FIRST show!!! Whooot!!!  Anyway - it was a stressful show for me, but by the end, I had calmed down and was really enjoying it.  :) 

I have been teaching a LOT in Vernon.  Along with my copic classes (which are on the fourth round now)...I have been doing card classes and layout classes. 

Having lots of fun with the ladies.  We're at the end stages of getting the store online and "live".  That's exciting stuff! :)  It's almost ready - hopefully by the 1st of October we'll be up and running.

As for my knitting, I have updates that need to be added to my store.  I did "okay" at the Salmon Arm fair but not as good as in Armstrong.  That's okay - the SA fair is a LOT smaller!! It was still a nice bit of cash for not having to do anything other than set up my stuff.  Next year I'm going to enter some items in the fair.  I say that every year but NEXT year for sure!! :) 

Anyway, not much else on the go (that's enough, isn't it??)  Thanks for stopping by!!  :)
