If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may remember that a few months ago, my husband, IHA, was frantically preparing to take a huge test. A huge test. A whomping 3 day test huge test. A 3 day test located on the opposite side of the country even! He went to California at the end of February to take the California Bar exam . After his test, the junior agents and I flew out for his graduation from Concord Law School and for a brief family vacation. Well, ever since that time, we have been waiting (and waiting and waiting) to see if he actually passed the test or if we would have to have 8 more intensive weeks of studying for him to retake it at the end of July. And guess what? He passed! He really really did. No more studying! None. Zippo. Nada. After 4 years of Law School and then this Bar exam prep stuff, it is finally over! (Btw, did you know that law school semesters run basically the whole year with only 3 weeks off in between????) Of course, besides being so happy to have him back and not studying 24/7, we are very very proud of him. He worked very hard. My mom said he passed because he had “his nose to the the grindstone.” I said, “Yes and he ground his nose right off!”

OK, that is the important news. Just a few side notes and random stuff to add…

Scrapbooking:

This is a photo of a scrapbooking layout I am working on about Agent K. It shows how I pull out different papers and embellishments that go together and then play around with how things can look. The final page may turn out similar to this or completely different.

This is a photo frame I decorated for Agent J to hang on her wall. The photo was taken by the Pinegrove Dude Ranch photographer that is why it is so crisp, clear, and well centered! Agent J liked the frame that I decorated and it is already hanging on her wall:)

Reading:

I finally, after 2 months of reading, I finished Outlander. I miss Jamie and Claire already. I believe that there are 6 books in this series. Should I look up the next book?

The Great Park Pursuit:

We are in week 3! We are having fun too. (Btw, IHA picked up a new hobby along the way. It is called Geocaching and as he tends to do with things, he is really getting into it.) Here is a photo from the first week. We went to Beardsley Park and Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport, CT. This shows the agents in the Prairie Dog exhibit. It is also a good example of the saying “the more things change, the more they stay the same” because Agent K had the same excitement on her face in the pop up tubes in the middle of the prairie dogs as she did when we went there when she was 2.

Last week we climbed to the top of Haystack Mountain and then took a side trip to Campbell Falls. This week only a subgroup of The Electric Pink Lemons will be going to Huntington State Park as I’m off to the Massachusetts Sheep and Woolcraft Fair and Agent K is off with a girlfriend for the day. The clues are very tricky because for the second week in a row we thought we were going someplace different until the final clue was revealed.

Knitting and other stuff:

Not much to report. Spring is a very busy time of year with all the things that go on with the girls and the yardwork, and gardening, and cleaning and all that. I haven’t started any new knitting this week. Just plugging away on Cece and a pair of Jaywalkers. I am getting ready to start some natural solar dyeing. I do hope that the abundant sunshine holds out for me!

  1. Way to go IHA – we are all so very proud of you! Hear that you were in the minority and that more people failed than passed. Wahooooo! Did I mention that we are proud.

    That ground hog thing is pretty cool.

    Hope you had a great time at the Cummington!

    Love,

    Wow! Left a message on the blog of IHA but WOW again here!!!!

    Way to go IHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A.T. I loved all your pics and all your commentary! The frame you made for A.J. is so AWESOME. And the scrapbook page you’re working on with the circles is gorgeous. I hope you keep the circles, they seem so right with the pictures (and they are so very “in” right now too!).

    As always – you rock girl!!!
    Congratulations to the whole family for working together with IHA and passing the bar.

  6. Congrats! The Bar is a terrifying experience, I’m told. What are your plans now?
