Finn's 1st day of first grade!

Today is Finn's first day of 1st grade! With construction going on at Congdon Elementary this year, he is going to a different school building than last year. For us, it means a walk to the bus stop instead of to school, and Finn is pretty excited.

Yurt

Hi all!  Last week we went to the UP to camp with a bunch of Duluth friends.  The Robinson family has a couple of yurts, a sauna and plenty of tent sites.  It was so so so so much fun!  Below is the photo documentation of said good time:

Smartphone Camera Dump

After getting a smartphone last year, there is a whole new class of photos and videos of the boys in our lives. Occasionally these bits will make their way to our Facebook pages, but today I found a veritable treasure trove of stuff from the last year that hasn't been seen since the day they were taken.
I'm not going to dump all 200 photos on here, but here are the most recent pictures you loyal blog followers may enjoy.

Last month, I brought the boys down to Okoboji for a visit not only with Grandparents Pearson, but also with my Aunt Kathy and her grandkids, Emma and Matt. The five kids got along extremely well during their week together, decorating cookies, going on rides at Arnold's Park, and swimming at Pike's Point.










Here are Finn, Leif & cousin Nora at the Forest History Center in Grand Rapids, out for a stationary ride on a four wheeler.


Last weekend, we took the kids down to Bayfront park in Duluth for their first rock show: hometown heroes Trampled By Turtles. We had lots of friends there with whom we danced and played and an all around great time was had by all.
