Who knew that mastering the granny square could be so exciting?
Stop the presses.
I have an announcement.
I have learned to granny square.
It only took months (off and on) of Jeanetta’s patient tutelage, and these online instructions for me to finally get the hook of it.
We are on the road this week for a little family vacation. These granny squares and pom pom making have helped occupy the many hours in the car.
But as relaxing as they are to make, apparently they are not as zen as I thought because I seem to have developed my first case of full body hives.
HIVES. Who gets hive on vacation?
Me. That’s who.
This is one of those moments when I really doubt my qualifications to be a mother. It has only taken one half- cross-country road trip with three kids to almost do me in.
But I am not giving in that easily.
Tomorrow we are doing a little whirlwind tour of D.C. and then we will settle into Williamsburg for the rest of the week -(you can keep up with our adventures on Instagram.)
Despite my bodies protest to the contrary, I really am excited about it all – especially D.C.
