Max quote

Facebook post from Amy: (she is a woman from church who comes with her sister twice a week to help me homeschool)

Conversation with a 3 year old this morning:
3 yr old: Red is the best color!
Me: Oh, is that your favorite color?
3 yr old: No, Paffer Maffew said it!

Pastor Matthew gave a sermon on ethnic harmony a couple Sundays ago and this young boy was listening!
“And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth,” – Acts 17:26a

8 year old

Our Spunky Bunkie is a whopping 8 years old. My the time has flown by especially now that she doesn’t cry hours on end anymore. She is such a good sport about hearing all the “crying” stories from when she was a baby. I secretly think she likes to hear them because she giggles every time we tell her how she pouted for the first half of her life outside the womb. She has an infectious zeal for life and her personality radiates from her. One never has to guess how she feels or what she is thinking. We love you Adie Lynn and are so very proud of you!

Barnalopet Ski Race

Although it has been near 32 degrees all week, there was just enough snow remaining at Riverside park for a great ski race today.

The Sons of Norway Barnalopet is a super kid friendly event with lots of snacks, several age divisions, and real Vikings to cheer everyone on – and it’s free.

We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day or a better experience for the kids. They already asked on the way home if we could sign up for it again next year.
