Silas has been visiting a family in Bemidji all week. We went up to visit him this weekend. Everyone had a great time.   





Jack picked me a flower. 

I caught my first northern pike. 


Talahi Unicycle Club

I am so excited that we were able to kick off the Talahi Kidstop Unicycle club yesterday. We raised funds to purchase 11 unicycles for the Kidstop. 


A couple of them were almost riding off the after just an hour of practicing. 

Lord willing, this will take off and more Kidstops in the area will be able to do this. 


Super fun mom…

It all started out so sweet and innocent.  

I should have never left the room. My big mistake.  

The bottom picture doesn’t show that it was everywhere, door handles, cupboards and walls. 

Maximizing summer

We spent the afternoon at the lake with Ezra and Nehemiah.  

I finished paining the closet in the kitchen.  



Lydia and Morgan spent the afternoon making aprons out of old button up shirts. I think this was a Pinterest win! 


Dinner out

Today I only had 4 girls and Max. It was pretty quiet around here. 

Grace made Ceasar’s salad and homemade Alfredo for lunch. 

For supper, Max wanted a cheeseburger, so I called over to Jimmy’s Pour House to check out the kids menu. And wouldn’t you know, on Monday’s kids 12 and under eat for a dollar. Woot! Woot! 


Best buds

Rylan and Jack are only 3 weeks apart. 

They’ve been besties since the womb.  


Where did the time go?

How’d she get so big? At 12, she is now taller than me and probably smarter too!

Oh how I love her.
