Last day of flag football was on Thursday. The coach asked the parents to join. I was the only one to do so. It took me a bit to convince the boys that I could throw and catch. It was great fun to get hot and sweaty with my boys.

Max got to skip out of workbooks for the last day of school and go flying with Grandpa.

Red Robin was the celebration meal for the last day of school. We played 10 rounds of telephone around the table.

We enjoyed a beautiful Friday night at the lake. We were able to put out the raft.

First job

Titus has his first paying summer job. I’m so proud of him and he did a great job.

Jack quote

I came upon this in the garage. Mind you, Jack and Max are NEVER this organized.

”we smash rocks…with safety glasses…to see what’s in them”

There was a big pause with one eyebrow raised when he said, ”with safety glasses.”

I laughed.

Life with boys is anything but dull.


This Sunday we will be studying the book of Jonah as we work our way through the whole Bible. The kids were doodling as I read the whole story.

These two

The greet me almost every morning with “I bless you Mommy.” It’s so sweet and I feel loved before the crazy of my day begins.

Lake Fun

The lake is my happy place. We enjoyed it with friends this afternoon.

Pulse Twin Cities

Carl worked this event and it was the first time I brought all the kids to see him work.

It was a little bit of a hullabaloo to find our “Friends and Family” seating, but we finally made it after a 30 minute adventure of going up and down and around and around.

Jack/Max to work

Jack and Max went with Carl to the cities today for work. I heard they were rockstars.
