Hard to believe it’s been 4 years since Vancouver… Here’s Isabel getting the crowd pumped up back in 2010.
Grace was still on her way home from gymnastics when I sent Isabel to bed. Went to check on her and found her cuddled up with a Kindle book, and a cup of tea ~ Made it herself! Growing up waaay to fast she is.
Sunny, but cold. -18°F at the bus stop this morning.
Scoring second on beam and 6th overall in her age group, Grace was anything but cold in Saturday’s Bemidji meet.
Isabel joined in the birthday party fun.
Joined by some school friends, Grace celebrated her birthday on the backyard hill.
The annual highlight reel ~ enjoy.
The New Year’s girl turns 11 in 2014.
~Happy New Year~
After following the 75 page construction book (by herself), Isabel had a little Lego land complete with flowers, kitties, swings and a sun deck.
With Uncle Jeremy’s wolf looking Meeko tied to her sled, Grace was in for a wild ride.
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.
Nikon D3, ISO 2000, Nikon 85mm f/1.4, 1/500sec @ f/1.4
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.
