Experienceing (AKA "Experementing")

Last week the girls spent a muggy, hot day doing science experiments (Josie calls them science experiences), growing crystals, and looking through the microscope at anything they could find.

Beach day

It's been hot…and humid around here. Thank goodness we're five minutes from Lake Michigan. Saturday afternoon we took advantage of the cool air, and chilly lake waters. Reading a book while sitting in the sand with my favorite people was heaven.

Tooth Fairy questions (and answers)

Sunday afternoon, Josie lost her fifth tooth. At New Holland Brewing Company. In the bathroom, while I washed my hands before pulling it out so she could eat her pizza. She was shocked that it came out while she waited, I was relieved that I didn't have to pull it out myself. Not my favorite parenting task.

Before bed, she placed her tooth in the tooth pillow and used the New Holland envelope to write a note the Tooth Fairy. The front explained the tooth loss situation while the back had a few unexpected questions. The Tooth Fairy was happy to answer them.


Q: What is your name? 
A: Tansy

Q: Where do you live? 
A: #2 Paste St.

Q: What shoes do you wear to work? 
A: None
She also left a quick "P.S. Cat" at the bottom of the note.
I'm sure the Tooth Fairy appreciated the warning.

Foot stool

Josie's new trick…

Looks like those gymnastics lessons are really paying off.

Sunglasses at Night

Josie loves the Corey Hart song Sunglasses at Night. She has for years. We've enjoyed choreographed dance numbers, Karaoke-style lip syncs, and acapela solos of the song (with made-up lyrics). It came on last week while driving home. The short one immediately got into character…

Serious part – singing out the window
Don't (switch the blade) on the guy in shades…
(Honestly, she doesn't know all the lyrics. Thank goodness)

Oh no…
I wear my sunglasses at night

Ellie's Selfies

I caught Ellie using my phone to take a few 
school-themed selfies. 
The pencil really adds to the look.

Oooh…pencil on the other side
Mug shot?
A few minutes later she asked me to take a picture for her.
I guess the selfies weren't acceptable.
(Although, I think they are very cute.)

Two weeks from today this little girl will be marching
into third grade. Pencil and all.

Monday miles

Amy and I have been running our long run of the week on the North Country Trail. The trailhead is about 40 minutes away, but it's totally worth the drive. From the trailhead you can head north for a 6 mile route, or south for 7.5 miles. Breathtaking!

Last week = 12.5 miles
2014 = 596
