I'm still working on the sock. I'm past the gusset decreases and working my way to the toe. In another 10 rounds or so, I'll try it on and see if I'm ready for toe decreases. This has been the perfect project for me this week (and the rest of the month looks almost as crazy as this week, but May is always kind of a zoo). Yesterday started busy and kept going until after dinner when we went to the middle school for Caleb to select his band instrument. He's decided to do band next year, so he had to pick an instrument. He's never played an instrument except a bit of plinking on the piano, but no formal lessons, doesn't know how to read music, and honestly, we didn't even know what all the instruments were when we looked at the list of band instruments. Which one did he choose? One of the mystery ones we'd never heard of - the Euphonium
! Turns out, it's a tiny tuba (tiny being a relative term). He also tried out the trumpet, but he liked the Euphonium better. He's really excited about it and is excited about middle school too. I think Logan and Max are going to love hearing him practice this thing!
