4 0ut 0f 6 kids are sick

thank you for all your sweet words on my aunt. she requested no services and to donate her body to science. which has made things a lil weird.
the kids are sick, tali has decorated herself several times today and we are trying to knit some hats for the isareli soldier chanukah project, so while i am gone here are some pictures to keep you occupied, from our family retreat last week in mt hermon.

ok, this is just yarn i spun. plied one half with red thread and one half with green

knitting on the way down. needed a heather hills picture for the ravelry contest
a wedding where the bride wore white... and a guitar. so did the groom, but you cant see his from this angle.
moose leading the kids on the great golden walnut hunt tali collected 58 walnuts:-) go tali go
jaden was in 3rd place with 79. sorry he is still sideways
zemeira falling asleep at the table :-) after making tambourines, collecting walnuts, collecting shekels for the shekel shack, and making koolaid playdough...she was worn out!

jaden is always ready to go. oh, the boy( turned 18 while we were there, so "man") in the background was soo brave. he was requested to eat dinner with a table of 8-12 yr old girls, and HE DID IT. such a mensch! tirzah and kezzi are behind jadey.

after the retreat we took the kids to see the ocean cuz it had been a few years. i know we live in california, we should go more!

tirzah and sea shells at the foggy beach. she looks like a teenager. so scary!

keeping tali warm at seymore marine lab. this place was soo cool. it had sea creatures for the kids to touch, a whale skeleton.

chai and part of a whale skeleton. rib i think.

my lil school of fish.

Oh! Are you Bobbie's daughter? What fun to come and see pics and names I recognize! And you spin! So do I. I spin angora bunny fur--white (to dye) and agudi (sp) which is all different colors. What do you spin? Is the picture of wool or something else?

Heatherly said...

Hi Heather, I just visited your mom's blog and read of all the sadness going on right now. I am praying for the family. And I am so sorry to hear that most of your sweet kids are sick. This must be putting a huge strain on you along with the death of your aunt. Take extra good care of yourself sweetie and if I lived closer, I would love to be of help. I am praying for all of you guys to get well soon and the other 2 not get your "Bug".

Love, Laurie in So. Ca.

Oh! The Golden Walnut hunt! I took my eldest to Ingathering when he was 10ish (now nearly 24) What a great time, it look like you all had fun too. My prayers for you and yours.

Looks like a fun get away!

I have to say, after taking anatomy this semester, I have gained a huge appreciation for people who donate their bodies to science. I know it seems weird, but it was very fascinating to study an actual human body. We would never have those experiences and the ability to learn so much without people like your aunt. I hope your family is coping well.

Are you still selling the addi's? I still need some!

HusBoy will be giving the israeli salad recipe to me for a Thanksgiving post, sorry it took so blankety-blank long.
