Autumn in August

The calendar says today is August 12. The weather outside is more like the end of September. Today at noon it was 51F!!!!! My favorite season is autumn so this unexpected cool blast is extremely welcome at Casa de Doula!

It has been a happy couple of weeks here. Justin is home from the camp he was working at. We all miss him when he's gone but Khi is his Mini Me and misses him the most.brothers.jpg

Kaity got a new bike. Her Dad, who has the patience of Job, is helping her learn to ride!newbike.jpg

I'm knitting an afghan square for a friend who is ill. I'm basing it on the Embossed Stitch heart in Nicky Epstein's Knitted Embellishments.

I'm off to knit on my porch swing and enjoy my little blast of autumn!

The best advice I ever got on teaching kids to ride a bike came from our old bike shop owner. It is best to teach on a smaller bike (he says like clown size). It's not a matter of holding on to them. He suggested letting the kids just sit on the seat and walk the bike. The kids will begin to pick up there feet a little at a time and more and more. They will find their balance. It has worked for 2 of my kids and several neighbor kids I taught too. :)
