June WIPocalypse

Gone a little longer than I thought but with the end of school and a busy soccer season and mobile babies sometimes I've got energy to make it through a level of Candy Crush and that's about it! So here it is June and I haven't updated you on anything since April.  I'll try to type quickly before the babies crawling on me actually succeed in wrestling away my phone.  

Kids first- Josh finished his last day of kindergarten yesterday and is officially on Summer break which I think he plans to thoroughly enjoy. He's also been playing in his first real soccer league since the end of April and is having a blast. Coach says he shows some talent and he enjoys it so we'll probably repeat next year.  Ben and Chris are most definitely crawling and cruising furniture with frequent attempts to take unaided steps.

Here's all the boys of the house on Erich's birthday at the end of April...

As for stitching I'm pretty close to on time for WIPocalypse check in time and I happen to have been stitching on a WIPocalypse piece too.  Since the last check in I put Fish City away and have dusted off HAED's Space Traveler.  I've done about half a page and have managed to make a halfway decent TARDIS corner.

I'm feeling pretty good about the over one stitching and think I'll keep on going for awhile.  

And the check in question this month is- Do you find yourself more productive with stitching in the summer or winter months? 

I guess it depends as parts of winter are filled with family gatherings and holidays so not so much then but other parts of winter are perfect for snuggling under a blanket and stitching the hours away.  Same in summer- some parts are so busy with outside activities but we get such miserable hot and humid weather for part of the summer that there's not much to do but hide in the air conditioning and stitch while ignoring the housework.  

That's about it for now.  Off to enjoy a little sunshine and get some dinner on the grill.  Hope you're all enjoying some summer sunshine too!

How can he be done with Kindergarten already?!! I just can't believe it. I can't believe you get any stitching done with all three boys going on. I know I didn't stitch for at least 5 years after my one and only was born. Looks like you're making some great progress, though!

Great progress. Lovely family pic as well.
