We're still having fun here, except for poor dh who has to work and prepare for his trial on Monday. Lots of knitting and playing games and working on our 12 Days of Christmas lapbook in the mornings.
The Pipster is a reckless little devil who likes to play in the woods. I think this last trip into the woods may convince him that he has to be more observant and careful. They don't go in as much during the summer, but it seems safer in the winter when the leaves are off the trees. But here in Hotlanta, the poison ivy doesn't die. I'm assuming that it goes dormant in other places....does it?TMax made the fancy duck-tape eye-patch for him. It does double duty keeping him from scratching and giving him a rakish look. When considering the pros and cons of wearing it to Trader Joe's we decided that it would be better to look like a 9 year-old with a piratey penchant than to have people gasping in horror at his deformity. I think we made the right choice because we only got comments on the "cool patch".
BTW, the swelling has gone down some. That pic included morning puffiness and his eye does open most of the way!
