Spring would not come!


A business started to get Madison excited about spring by painting flowers on its window. After several snow days and a blizzard I went on a run and found this regination.


The hail that fell like snow. 


But we got out to see a show. Suessical the Musical with the whole family at SDSU.

April so far, part 2

Okay, so there was a little more than just snow. But it is snowing outside right now, it doesn’t feel like April 8th, it feels like January 78th 😬. 




Issac Meyer did his Eagle Scout project at library by helping to make a Teen Space. A final touch on a work project I’ve spent over a year creating. 




David joined the Master Singers and sang an at St. Thomas Catholic Church. Easter concert. He had a beautiful solo. 


Taran telling a blasphemous joke, “Look mom, the Holy Ghost.”


Another bad Taran joke. Me: Taran put on deorderant. Taran...


Easter!!!  So much sugar!  We actually did Easter really poorly.  We dyed eggs and Emma made nests, but we did have a hint until a week later. 




Taran joined the after school Computer Club. They created their game and took it to SDSU. They won!!!


Emma and Willa went to Sioux Falls to do a little spring shopping. She came home with this outfit (but not the hat).

April so far

SNOW!!!

Weekend Notes


David went to the DSU play The Elephant Man. The was a “carnival” in the lobby that turned him into a mythical beast. 


Calvin was Alexander Hamilton for the 6th grade People of the Past. It’s like an animatronic museum. You put a quarter in the historical figure and it tells you about its life. 


He did well. 


Library Fruit Basket Upset!!!  Isaac Meyer chose his Eagle Scout project to be book moving. All Saturday was spent moving books and bookshelves and assembling chairs to make the library new again.

Emma had fun at SDSU and shared these pictures: the air band competition (she’s bat girl) that they won and the tug of war. She is apart of the women engineers sorority.

Oscar’s House and Calvin’s Fort






Emma was Oscar’s pixie this Christmas and made him a fabulous house. It took up a good portion of the basement and started to break down, so, eventually, it had to go. We took some pictures before curbside recycling came. 


Blanket forts at the library. Calvin really got into it. This picture doesn’t do it the least justice. 

Weekend Notes


Pi Day!!!  Small celebration, but still so yummy.  Go circumference!


St. Patrick’s Day, the leprechaun came and broke the traps but he left skittles...


...and a yarn trail leading to Lucky Charms. 


Impromptu tea party. 


Dinosaurs and dragons invited. (No idea why Willa has been wearing a sleep mask lately.)



David joined a band!  A friend of mine learned that he can sing and play the recorder and invited him to join a band her husband was starting. They sung at a true Irish dive bar and it was packed.
