Here in the Holey Glen

These photos happened about an hour apart. Rose, absorbed in a favorite reread, didn’t budge during the interim. It amused me to see what an irresistible force she was to her brothers and sisters as she lay there, immersed. (I wasn’t quick enough to snap the moment when Huck stood there whacking a train perilously close to her head.)

Later, looking at the photos, I was, er, bemused to note that Rose’s mother has rather missed her window to heed Auntie Leila’s excellent advice.

Charlotte to the rescue!

(Except I’m going to need a ribbon-trim-for-dummies tutorial. Pretty please!)

    Hah! Too funny! Ribbon is easy… just sew it on (along the top and bottom) after you do the hem. Some people like to sew it on with the hem, but I prefer to be able to take the ribbon off if I want to without having to re-sew the hem.

    Such great homeschooly pictures! My daughter’s jeans are like that too and she won’t let me fix them. Holes are cool, you know.

    Oh, those photos are precious!!

    My Calli doesn’t wear jeans, her 9-yo brother does and wears holes, I swear, just by looking at his knees. Not sure he’d appreciate ribbons though …

    We still call all construction vehicles “snorts” because of that book. Wonderboy has great tatse in literature!

    I prefer jeans with holes. Less formal. lol

    Such cozy moments! Rose and I share a favorite reread! Truthfully, I can’t read the last few chapters, but the first half of the book completely fell apart.

    Yay, Charlotte, thanks for the link! Rose got pretty excited when I told her the plan…

    @Penny: Snorts! YES!
