Hi Okwataga!

I just checked my local weather report. We are expecting frost up here in Ohio too! 35 degrees tonight, near freezing.

Hi

Hi there, been awhile since I've been on the site. We had frost up until 2 weeks ago (Western Oregon), then a solid week of pouring down rain. Now it's been 90 degreen for the last 3 days. Nothing like a little shock to the system - everyone is sunburned!

What has everyone been up to? I'm just getting back to beadwork for the first time since my son was born (he's almost 3) and I'm already swamped with orders. Just finishing my son's first outfit - will post pics when I'm finished.

Thinking about a new beaded set for myself if I ever get the time!

Hi Okwataga!

I was just about to upload some new photos for my albums when I saw you were here.

I guess the most exciting things to happen to us are that my son got a job through an internship at his college. It is only a temporary job, but he will earn a little pocket money and get some experience in a work setting.

My daughter is off in Colorado on a camping/hiking vacation trip with her cousins. It was great that they invited her, as we could not afford any vacations this year and she was bored silly at home.

How are things with you, Okwataga?

Is the New Mexico trip your vacation? I was there about twenty years ago with Mr. Nel to visit relatives and see the sights. Mr. Nel went to college at the U. of NM We like that area a lot. I wouldn't mind going back some day.

BTW, my new photos are up in my family album, if you want to look. Also, I think I may have added a few to some other albums since I talked to you last.

Ok in most places school is in... how do you balance school and the days your kids are ALLOWED to be absent to going to pow wows - do you stay close to home... or how do you pick and choose????

And being that Fall is right around the corner - any new dresses made over the summer? new beadwork????

1st day of school is tomorrow for us, and my 2nd grader is actually happy to go!! Okwataga- I have been watching the progress on the new school in Cherokee- WOW!! Hubby's Dad was at the ribbon cutting with Mandy Swimmer and some others. He said it was beyond beautiful.
As for new projects- haha gotta finish the ones I've started..... and am itching to make a new dress for me... when I can find the time. Got some potential orders coming in ( I hope) so that will eat up some days.

Balancing school and powwows isn't a problem for me. Most of the powwows are on weekends. Also, my kids have absolutely no interest in them.

My sister and I dance, but my brother never got into powwows besides singing when he was very young. Once when he was about 7 or 8 (he's 18 now!), he was having fun playing Gameboy with other kids at a powwow. When it was time to leave, he complained to my mom "WHY do you have to TORTURE me by taking me to powwows?!" in a very dramatic voice. My mom thought for a second, and said "So you know about powwows and when you grow up, you can take YOUR kids to them and torture THEM!" This reply actually satisfied him! We still laugh about this conversation today, about 10 years later. Maybe it would work for your kids, Neling?

My sons were at pow-wow's from the very beginning and we all would dance together ,then my oldest "hes 12 now" got into the DS , playing with cuzins, girls lol but I never worried I knew one day he would be putting his gear in the van and ready to go dance. I diddnt make him ,just waitd lol NOw hes all excited about his new gear. NO worries K Neli hugs..

Thanks Eap and Eagle Plumes!

My kids are both teenagers now. They went with me when they were little, but they never really wanted to dance. All they wanted to do was eat frybread and watch everyone else dancing. I'm just disappointed that they don't want to go with me anymore and watch me dance.
