Sweet Bug

We had Olivia's parent-teacher conferences this morning and to no surprise, she's doing amazing in school and is an eager learner.  Her teacher sent this recent writing sample home.  Liv's joy and personality shines through even in her sweet writing.

"Hi my name is Olivia. I have five people in my family including me. I am 7 years old. I am the oldest kid in my family. I go to Mann school. Our class made emojis. My emoji looks like this :) I had a pet dog but she died when she was 10 and 70 in dog years. When I grow up I want to be a vet or a fashion designer. I haven't decided yet. My favorite things are outside, animals, music, friends, my stuffed animals, my home, and my family. My birthday is April 3rd. My half birthday is October 3rd. I have lots of friends. Most of them go to Mann school. I have two friends from Lincoln. There names are Kate and JJ. We are good friends. I love my life.  Some part might be sad, some happy but it is still a great life."

Lacking Effort

Q had a solid first half performance at soccer this morning and then spent the second half like this protesting that he was "so tired." 

Playoff Ready!

Paisley Park

After our cousin's wedding in St. Paul as we delayed going to a family luncheon, we attempted to pay our respects to Prince and visit his home, Paisley Park.  Let's just say it was underwhelming as we discovered a giant warehouse-looking white structure on the corner of a busy expressway with absolutely no signage or photo-opt, with a $40 entry fee.  #purplerain

My Little Sunflower

Q has the same three's class and teacher as G did.  So it's fun to see the same projects making their return again.

Sick Boss Baby

Poor Q is on day four of a virus. Confirmed today that it's not strep or hand-foot-mouth, but just a virus.  Yet Boss Baby isn't the nicest patient with lots of grunts and demands, so hopefully he will kick this asap.
