SCUBA tanks were re-certified the other day… To Isabel the blue was an ocean in need of some fish.
the diving board made for lots of flips, and a few flops this weekend ~ Special thanks for Roger and Faye for joining the fun.
Captain Sam called it the circle of death… It’s sort of like NASCAR, you make a bunch of left hand turns, someone crashes and everyone screams for more 😉
Grace is at gymnastics camp until Friday but flight 4132 for Palma Mallorca departs on Thursday… the goodbyes begin. 😢
These two gymnastic superheroes have a week of twice a day gymnastic workouts and bunking in the Hamline dorm rooms. Which for them, is about as good as it gets. Have a great time girls!
First day of summer and Isabel’s already trying to make some money. She wants to sell lemonade, I think she should sell signs.
Isabel’s 5th grade class kicked off the year-end fun with a poetry slam.
pushing pool time until last light
Getting better all the time.
Grace worked hard to come back from a season on the sidelines due to a back injury. Tonight it paid off with some solid scores, and a nod from her coaches to move up to level 6. Congratulation Grace!
Isabel’s been at a friend’s house all week, so just Grace, Angela and I for the Baptism River high falls hike.
thankfully Molly and the boyz joined us at the Science Museum. Had they not, Molly wouldn’t have pointed out this photo for me. Grandma and Grandpa learning about the ancient people of Peru… Ahhh
Leaning about color and the wavelength of light at the Science Museum of Minnesota.
Two ready for the bus, one still organizing her lunch box.
Isabel putting in some piano time on her last night as an only child. Grace and Angela fly back from their California Cousins place tomorrow night.
Isabel determined that if she listened to a recording of her piano piece while she slept (on repeat – all night) her playing performance improved the next day. Interesting enough for one of the 1st place ribbons (they give out multiple 1st place ribbons).
Fantastic work Isabel!
Isabel had her game face on for the Snownami volleyball tournament today.
It’s Angela’s birthday tomorrow, and Isabel worked all afternoon to make sure it’s a sweet 16.
A multitasking study involving a memory game and sending text messages earned Grace 1st place at the regional science fair, and a trip to the state science fair in Minneapolis. Fantastic work Grace!
