scholar

Middle school comes to a close in a couple of weeks, and tonight we celebrated some of Edison’s brightest at the  annual Honor’s Banquet.  Among the 150 6th graders, Grace was one of just 7 kids to earn a 4.0 grade point average.  With her smarts, discipline and dedication, I keep telling her…

“Oh, the places

you’ll go”

                                                                         Dr. Seuss

summer

Spent the night on the deck and noted two sure signs of summer; a lone mosquito, and freshly pinked toes.

symphony

or maybe just an impressive 6th grade band.

way easier

Been working on this for weeks… When I realized that a counterweight would make pulling the front wheel up  way easier.  The bags of dog food in the back helped a little, the steel barbell was better but kept falling off. Then Isabel showed up.  With her back there the big bike wheelie is a snap.

ps.  😉

terrible, horrible, no good…

Grace is at a hotel/water park birthday party sleepover. Isabel’s home, feeling left out, and she lost her boots, bumped her chin, bit her lip, and is having a terrible, horrible no good very bad night…. So we went for a walk. A stick put a brief skip in her step, but didn’t turn the frown upside down.

serious

My weekend work schedule has kept me from a number of Isabel’s volleyball games, but got to watch yesterday and saw some serious improvement.

continuing education

Grace was doing her Google drive math homework  when she asked for some help…

Write an expression to show the following:

“If there are 100 bacteria in a petri dish, and they multiply doubling every hour, how many bacteria will there be after 7 hours?”

100 (27) = 12,800

Unless I audit some math classes over the summer, my role as math tutor looks to be on shaky ground.

cupcake

Joined by a dozen friends, Isabel celebrated her birthday with a cupcake decorating party. Happy 10th Birthday Isabel!

move up meet

Starting with a 7.6 on vault, Grace had to play catch up to get a move up score of 31. A solid beam, bar and floor exercises gave her a 33.1. Moving up to level 5 she is.

spring?

Sun + snow = Spring in Duluth.

dog bed

Everyone seems to like Samson’s new dog bed.

movie night

When I suggested movie night, this wasn’t what I had in mind…

dishwasher

Got a new dishwasher.

cornbread

While I got some exercise, Isabel whipped up some cornbread to go with the chili I made for dinner. The brown sugar topping she used was kinda the bomb.

dog sitting

Briggs, a Golden-Doddle is spending her spring break with the boyz. Samson loves his fluffy little playmate. Clarke on the other hand is probably growling on about how good he had it, “back in the day when I was an only dog.”

grand

For every minute of piano practice, I spend two getting her there.  “Maybe if we moved the piano out of the basement, she’d have more fun playing,” we thought…  We not only moved it, thanks to cashforkidneys.com, we upgraded to this beauty.  It’s nearly as old as I, but a recent overhaul has it looking and sounding absolutely amazing.

guilty

It’s Friday night, Mom’s running Isabel from volleyball to piano to volleyball (don’t ask), and Grace is home with nowhere to be and nothing to do. Unlike her Dad, who’s eating chips in front of a mindless good cop, bad cop movie, she’s catching up on practice minutes from Wednesday night when she presented her second place science fair project.

Should have opted for a documentary… Guilty

tangled

Grace’s corn row braids lasted for nearly two weeks, but it took these two nearly an hour to remove em’. Tangled she was.

ooops

Don’t want to forget this one :-)

surfer

He’s still here, an inch taller, 10 pounds heavier and becoming a serious counter top surfer.

gracias a los abuelos

What could be better than spending your holiday on a sunny beach in Mexico? Sharing it with cousins Ethan, Lydia, Maria! Thanks to some wonderfully generous Grandparents, that’s exactly what we did.

“gracias a los abuelos” = thank you Grandma and Grandpa (I think…)

lots more to come!

three dog days

Thursday Clarke turned 5, Friday he and the girls marched  in the Christmas City of the North parade supporting Animal Allies, and for the third dog day,  the girls worked the “Love a Pet” adoption event at the local Subaru dealer.

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!
