Crochet Girl

Out kitten Tut always seems to be cold.  His favorite place to be his curled up against the fridge, because there is some warm air that comes out the vent at the bottom.  It's cute and funny although a bit ridiculous as we have to push him out of the way everytime we want into the fridge!

I suggested to Genevieve yesterday that he might wear a fuzzy little sweater.  She's tried making accessories for the other cats and they have not grateful or cooperative - not in the least!

She got to work right away (the girl is quick!  and she works without a pattern!).  The beginning looks promising - Tut ignored it when we put it on and he seemed happy to have it.  :)

Lincoln Golfs!

For his birthday Lincoln was gifted with some golf clubs.  He went out with Grandma Karen and gave them a run through earlier this week.  He had a great time - he's getting too big too fast!

(He reports that he *only* lost 5 balls.... !)

Suzuki Institute: Year 2!

At the beginning of June three of the kiddos and I headed out for our second year of Suzuki Institute!  It was a small group, but we had a good time.  The Alaska Suzuki Association brought up the same cello instructor as last year, it was fun to see her again and discuss all the progress the kids have made in the past year. 

It was an exciting week for two of them - Lincoln moved up to a new cello size, and Bentley will be moving up to one in the fall - but that's a post all of its' own.... !

Lincoln and Tut

Our new kitten is much more of a people person than Thea the Bengal.  Tut hangs out with us more, purrs on occassion, and wants to sit near/on us.  Lincoln has a good rapport with all the cats, but in looking through my May photos I noticed a theme - Lincoln is ALWAYS seeking out the cat!  He loves animals/is very good with them/it's no wonder they all like him.  I present the Lincoln and Tut show!
