Piper

A little early, really tiny, and massively cute. Little Piper managed to sleep through her cousins constant cooing during our Saturday visit.

Congratulations Jeremy and Sibby!

rock star

A rockin’ beam routine couldn’t quite compare to the glam rock, purple head banded hair in the background at the Rock Star Invitational.

thank you!

Mark, Hiedy and cousin Maria made a last-minute road trip attending Grace’s gymnastics meet yesterday. I worked this weekend missing the meet, but despite the cellar like lighting in the Superior, Wisconsin gymnasium, Mark saved the day with this fantastic shot.

A great weekend for us, made particularly special with cousin, and fellow gymnast Maria in attendance.

breakfast blanket

Isabel didn’t want to get out of bed this morning, so she brought it to breakfast.

three generations

I shared a photo of some loft beds I thought would be a cool Christmas gift with my Dad ~ while I’m well aware he doesn’t stand around much, I didn’t think they’d arrive this early…

better bar

Placing 6th in her age group, the bars were certainly one of her better routines.

ghosts & goblins

Apparently unafraid of the ghoulish theme, Grace put up some of her better scores of the year.

BWCA

We had it all on our overnight BWCA trip ~ Sun, rain, snow, and wind. Despite the unpredictable weather, we also had a bit of fun.

gymnast

My gymnast, and the hardest working 11 yo. I know.

bel the builder

Spotted in the recycling bin at school, Isabel asked if she could have a particularly interesting piece of cardboard. Brought it home and turned it into this…

welcome home

Don’t think anyone looks forward to the end of the school day like Clarke ~ Welcome home Isabel!

boo hoo back to school

First day of middle school and 4th grade… went well from what I hear :-)

rocky mountain high… Wyoming

Couldn’t resist on the soundtrack… it’s copyrighted so you’ll need the password.  Hint, what’s a pack animal that beings with “Lla”?

a day in the life

Like the famous Beatles song, Isabel and her piano camp friends let the final chord of their silent film music score ring.

lifegaurd

Not allowed in the pool, Clarke was strangely content playing lifeguard.

cannon ball

Grace bombing mom’s iPhone in slow motion ~ still works.

under the sea

come on… sing it!

Under the sea
Darling it’s better
Down where it’s wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin’
Full time to floatin’
Under the sea

Under the sea is where Grace and Isabel will be spending this week; surfacing only occasionally in Grandma’s pool for food and air.

fashion faux pas?

not for the mix master Miss Isabel.

spackling

This was my answer to “what can I do?”. When I start sanding I’ll probably reconsider the wisdom of having Isabel help with drywall prep.

music in the park

Here’s another reason why Duluth was voted Outside magazine’s best outdoors town.  Chester Park’s weekly, and free summer concert series.  With sun and 70 degrees we took in local legend Charlie Parr playing at the base of Chester ski hill and it’s towering old school ski jump.

Isabel brought a friend, they listened briefly, but spent most of their time scaling the ski slope.
