art fair

On Sunday morning, Katie and I drove to Marine on St. Croix to the annual art fair. Got to have lunch with my dear friend Julie, her daughter Libby, friend Trish and her Mom Libby. We then strolled around the fair. Perfect weather and wonderful company.

brace yourself

Sweet 11 year old Katie Grace had her braces installed today. I just got home from school because I prepared for a sub tomorrow so I didn't see her before she headed to confirmation, but I'm looking forward to seeing her smile in about 1 1/2 hours.
before school and no braces

after school/with braces

and she chose MN Vikings colors for her rubber band choice. Go Vikes!

thermometer plummeting

So the hazy skies and hot humid weather has left our region for the moment. We spent the day inside for recess. I couldn't figure out why we had a tough time concentrating in library, and then I remembered...temperature drop and indoor recess=tough time concentrating.

Tomorrow will be another day.

art fair in Marine

Today was a bright shiny day that Katie and I spent together going to the Marine on St. Croix art fair, going to her 3 on 3 tournament and then ending the day at my friend Abby's essential oil party.

We got to spend time with friends Julie, Libby, Trish and her Momma Libby.

Great day.

3rd field show

The River Falls marching band is performing this evening at Cumberland Wisconsin their 3rd field show of the season. I'm thinking of jumping in the Prius and heading to the show...

and his face lit up

Today I was on bus duty at school when a handsome man and his equally handsome son start walking toward me on the sidewalk. I waved to them, the son saw me and his face lit up like it was Christmas morning. He ran to me and we hugged.

Thanks Brad and Osten for making my day shine.

Here's Beata getting sworn in as safety patrol. She's now a big grown up 6th grader.
