I feel like summer has barely begun, but somehow, we are already one-third of the way through it. And the days are on their way to being darker and shorter again… eek. That’s not very glass-half-full of me to say, but I think it puts into perspective how brief and beautiful this time of year… Continue reading June 2019
Oh hey! I just wanted to quick pop in and do a July and August recap now that it’s nearly September and the 2/3 of the kids in this house will be in school in less than two weeks. So, let’s go back to the 4th of July! We lived that good cabin life with… Continue reading July + August 2018
We are a third of the way through Summer ’18! (Say it’s not so!) I’m happy to say that we’ve been definitely soaking up the warmth, checking things off our bucket list left and right, and just generally enjoying barefoot life, playgrounds, splashpads, the library, dance classes, extra ice cream, extra sunlight, and all that… Continue reading Just June

I also… Continue reading Six and Three

Above is a photo of Rosie borrowing her friend’s motorcycle and riding into summer like the coolest cat you’ve ever seen. Here is everything that’s gone on so far and the photographic proof… Continue reading Halfway through summer!
Happy 4th of July weekend! We spent last Friday and Saturday up at my in-laws cabin. This was our first visit up there since last summer and we squeezed a whole lot into our 24 hour visit. Even though the weather was on the chilly side for July, none of the kids or their cousins hesitated about… Continue reading Return to the cabin!
Yowza! Yesterday I got to watch my beastly husband run the MN Spartan Sprint down in Welch Village. My sib-in-laws were total rock stars and watched our kids for us while I accompanied Joe to his race in the morning. We met up with them later and Cece and her cousin Michaela even ran the kid race together! I… Continue reading MN Spartan Sprint ’17
