2017–week 4

Monday: we were participating in national lutheran schools week at preschool, and monday was pajama day!IMG_2678

tuesday: toby, being toby.IMG_2680

also tuesday: layla spent all of her birthday and christmas money buying herself a tumbling mat to practice gymnastics at home. it arrived today and she was so excited! IMG_2684

saturday: i found it amusing how toby was sitting with shane… kind of a consoling, pat-on-the-shoulder pose. like, “it’s okay, man. you’re a good guy.”IMG_2749

saturday: very exciting! some of layla’s gymnastics team went to see the UW vs. Utah meet, and got to participate in a workshop with the gymnasts and coaches afterward.IMG_2753

go huskies!IMG_2750

q&a with UW gymnasts afterward. the workshop itself wound up being a little bit lame and disorganized, without a lot of actual gymnastics or coaching, but meeting the gymnasts, the coaches, and using their equipment was pretty cool.IMG_2755

2017–week 3

sunday: better late than never. we FINALLY got out to celebrate dave’s birthday after two weeks of postponing it because one or more people were sick. dinner at varlamos.IMG_2551IMG_2554

monday: no school for MLK day, so the kids and i did a costco run. layla was determined to heave the huge bag of dog food into the cart without assistance. it was quite amusing. and time consuming.IMG_2564

thursday: not entirely sure what sparked this situation. there was some styrofoam that micah got ahold and of and decided to do some sort of science experiment. it apparently involved a small container of water, two buttons, a toy helicopter, and an orange… it seems the plan was to attempt to cause the buttons to rise out of the water by using the blades of the helicopter as a fan… and the orange, it turns out, was just for a snack. i’ll go ahead and ease the suspense. it didn’t work.

friday: another meet for layla, this time in vancouver. we got to play hooky for this one (everyone but shane), and drove down in the morning, picked up aunt marilynne, and headed to the event center for the meet. IMG_2588

after, we met the portland cousins at the spaghetti factory for dinner. it was a lot of fun, and great to see them. layla got a fancy drink called a cotton candy lemonade, or something like that, and it showed up looking like something out of a dr. seuss book. there was also a balloon man, and he made micah a pikachu.IMG_2627 IMG_2631

saturday: toby seriously licked shane’s hand for about 15 minutes. he apparently needed a through bathing.IMG_2645
