Another one from the lake.
Our first trip to the lake was calm, sunny, and nearly 80 degrees. This is exactly how I felt.
That’s it, today marks the end of chapters 2 and 4 in the elementary school books, and the beginning of a pleasantly pedestrian pace to daily life.
Multiplying and dividing already, Isabel puts the wraps on 2nd grade homework. My how time flies.
No license, no bait, lure, hook or otherwise. Just a plastic fish tied to the end of the line. One cast, one fish… Doesn’t get much better than that.
should have been my response… instead, I just took pictures.
Finally warm enough for skirts, sandals and sunscreen.
That’s a close up of the “put the camera down… now” look. I did, right after I took this
A slow start had the girls running the last block to catch the bus.
For it to look anything like spring, we’re gonna need a major meltdown.
The perfect birthday gift for my little reader… thanks Grandma
“almost” straight from Wikipedia…
He’s actually much more docile than his name suggests. Kind of likes us actually… still hangin’ out in the front yard.
Cold feet… not around here.
The birthday girl goes big for breakfast with a “Texas” doughnut.
“Isabel why are you wearing Mom’s robe?” “Cause it smells like Mommy.”
Piano practice with a twist…. can you sit like that?!
The John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon spans 373 miles from Duluth to the Canadian border, and back. 10 marathon teams started today, with another 30 competing in the mid distance race. Lack of snow which cancelled last years race, and delayed this years, wasn’t a problem today, but temps in the 30′s isn’t ideal for running dogs.
Either way, fun to watch the athletes (2 and 4 legged) tackle old man winter.
Friday night, Mom’s home from NY, and dinner was a leftover, snack, cereal, DIY smorgasbord. With nowhere to be, and nothing to prepare for, Friday night feels just right.
The girls were off school last week. They slept in, had friends over, snowboarded and partied at Uncle Jeremy’s wedding. Problem is, it’s Wednesday, and they still seem hung over. ~ CRANKY ~
Isabel’s diary… It’s a plastic case, with a password protected locking cover that has voice recognition software. The amazing thing is even though I know the password, it knows I’m not Isabel, and won’t open… Crazy the technology that has become part of your everyday.
Another one from the hill today.
ps. There was an open house at the new Spirit Mountain Chalet today. In addition to a beautiful new building, there was hot chocolate, cookies, hot dogs and best of all… FACE PAINTING! Isabel went with a heart, Grace, a mustache???
Sun and temps in the mid 30′s kept the “dad, my toes are cold,” to a minimum today.
My brother got married this weekend…. to someone so right, that try as I might, imagine it no other way.
Congratulations Jeremy & Sibby!
