A house full of Grandparents were on hand for “Mouse Hunt”, Isabel’s winter recital piece.
Always last, he’d wait until the all clear was given from below… “Clarke”! At that he’d drop in blasting down the run faster than any sled could carry him.
Three snow days, and over two feet of snow, make for one great backyard sledding run.
A sneak peek from the annual Granddaughters photo book. Should be available for gift giving by December 25th.
Clarke turns 4 today. He was pretty excited about the squeaky squirrel toy, and his new collar, but was feeling like a four-legged fire hazard in the girls decorations.
Happy Birthday Clarke!
Last night the study group reconvened. Still productive, but with a furry follower.

Took lots of photos at last weeks gymnastic meet… can’t seem to find many to share however. I’ve noticed it before, but the lights in many gyms are some form of fluorescent. No problem other than the color of the light cycles with AC current. As a result, photos taken a split second apart will have very different colors.
An oddly productive bedtime study group.
After Isabel took Clarke to the mailbox in the daylight saving darkness, he went missing for a few minutes. Looked outside, called his name, offered a treat… no Clarke. Turns out he was stranded in the mud room, restrained by his leash like it was tied to an old oak tree.
Isabel takes candy collection to the next level.
Rocked out at the Blue Man Group show last night… Isabel partied on 7-up and popcorn, then passed out on the floor. She’s still sleeping, so hopefully she won’t be hung over
A pre Halloween hay ride had the girls in full costume today.
Grace’s pre-bar salute… a perfect 10.
In my eyes a 7.4 seems pretty close to a 10.0… Grace however, seems to disagree. Her disappointment was short-lived thanks to an uncle, auntie and quadruple grandparent turnout. Thanks for coming everyone!
Isabel moves to music in her head and rolls with a style all her own.
A generation ago, a little girl from Motley, Minnesota played a flute in her grade school band. Today, a little girl from Duluth, Minnesota plays that very flute, in her grade school band.
A recent post on the Strobist got me thinking about my little used and long forgotten reflector. It’s simple, inexpensive, and in some situations, makes for some beautiful light.
