AL Challenge #2 X-treme Birch

Filed under: Knitting — by bethc @ 10:54 pm

We were out and about one day, Birch and I, when Birch spotted some pretty flowers.

"Let me play, let me play," Birch pleaded…

"Are you kidding?" I replied. "The thorns on that thing are the size some people use to knit socks… We will not risk your well being for a romp with some yellow beauties (strangely out of place in Virginia.)" And into the car we went. As we drove the whining got louder and louder until I finally gave in and we stopped at a playground.

There was climbing


And daring feats with the wind

Lest you think this is not x-treme… keep in mind, dear reader, that the ground is covered not with soft, yarn tender grass. Nope it's


Birch had fun, even going on a bus ride!

Not x-treme unless this bus driver is

three and driving on the wrong side! All seemed to be going smoothly then suddenly


A few tears, and some words under my breath while the bus driver was out of ear shot, and all was returned to normal. Back into the car for naps, a good day was had by all.


  1. What a fun day birch had!!! I particularly like the picture of the “bus driver”. Too cute!

  2. Hahahaha! At least Birch didn’t venture into the murky world of…the Upper School bathroom…where fabric items frequently become toilet stoppers.
