“Hey Bud, what are you doing”
(giggle, giggle) “Paige, I can hear daddy”
“Daddy, I can hear you”
“Daddy, I am cold, I want to go inside”
When I consider Your heavens, the work of the Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained. What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of Man that you visit him?
The kids and I enjoyed this moon this morning…what a great reminder of His faithfulness!
I can’t believe how big my babies are getting. Thought you’d all enjoy seeing their school pictures from this year.
Anson got sent to wash his face and then come back for a second shot.
I swear her hair was nice and neat when I sent her to school :) That’s Paige-y for you. (she kinda takes after me)
Every year about this time Williams, MN has what they call Potato Days. We never really got involved except to watch the little parade that come right by our house. We’re at the end of the route, which usually means lots of extra candy! Since we were all selling stuff this year we decided to let the others in on our little secret of our house being the prime candy route. So the Blocks, Olsons, Martinsons, and Haacks convened at 325 Park Ave.
I was starting to get a little worried that I over-exaggerated our location being good after two floats and very little candy. And then nothing…like…the parade was over.
At least the beautiful reigning Potato Day queen had saved some candy for us. But wait…whats that? 5 minutes later more floats start coming and we hear someone yell, “Do you guys like candy?”
“YEAH!!!!” about 15 kids screamed
And it rained candy. So much so that Derek had to get out the shop broom to get it off the street before the next float.
Sophie was NOT giving hers up for anything!
Next year I have a feeling this place won’t be our little secret anymore.
