Peripheral vision is exceeding good at identifying movement. Which becomes exceeding annoying when you keep thinking someone’s at the door.
Good food, excellent service and cute servers.
We kicked off MEA weekend just north of Two Harbors by climbing Silver Cliff. Isabel’s friend Claire turned out to be the billy-goat of the bunch, but everyone seemed to enjoy being out. Weather was largely cooperative, but a few passing showers had the girls running for cover. Grace gets photo credits for the two climbing photos 🙂
ps. Isabel was at a friend’s house.
Homecoming week continues with movie character day.
Thanks to Luke, Han and Chewie, Angela escaped the Imperial Army just in time for Sci-fi day and East High School’s homecoming week.
A long paddle, and soggy nights made for adventure, but perfect days, stunning scenery and the near absence of bugs made for lots of BWCA fun.
It been just a week, but Angela’s snuggling right in.
first day of 5th and 7th grade!
First day of school. Grace is stressed, worried and not so smiley. Isabel had her clothes hanging out the night before, bounced out of bed, and was waiting on everyone else to head for the bus stop.
Grace took one for the team tonight. Mr. I chased a skunk and got sprayed is getting the peroxide, baking soda, dish soap concoction rinsed from his foul fur. Smells like Clarke will be sleeping in the garage tonight, and tomorrow…. and Saturday, and….
No camera tricks here ~ hand over hand up, and holds the pike for a good 5-10sec.
The big fella is anything but tough, so I figured he just had the doggy sniffles or something. Turns out a tick related fever has him feeling pretty blue ~ woof.
Sparkly and surprisingly difficult to remove… Went to work with a glittery peace sign on my arm 😐
$20 in gas station fireworks = priceless 4th fun with cousin Jack.
It’s the last day of piano camp, and Isabel tells me that they’ll be doing a 5 student piano ensemble. Sounds fun.
update: Isabel’s piano teacher Emily thoughtfully placed a link to a video of the ensemble in the comments below. Also, here’s a link to Emily playing a fun piece called “All of Me” by Jon Schmidt.
