What a wonderful feeling to be greeted by 21 lovely children and have parents call to sing happy birthday and eat a delicious dinner and german chocolate cake from an adoring husband.
I am blessed.

Ibby and I went on our 3rd annual Black Friday run to Lino Lakes and Planet Thrift. I love spending time with my fancy and beautiful sissy in law. We got a little silly with canes in Planet Thrift...there are just a few people that I would feel comfortable doing that with!
Love you Ibby.
Love you Ibby.

Our 10 year old has just started playing basketball and on Monday night had a scrimmage. After spending time at Great Clips with the boys, I stopped by to pick up our girl from her scrimmage to find her hanging out with her team. I love that we live in a little big town and have these opportunities for our children.

The Putnam County Spelling Bee took the stage 5 times during the past week--last night was the closing night and 6 special visitors came from Southern MN. Vivian, Liana, Jae, Kim, Pat and Adam. Thank you for making the trip and for making Chip Tolentino so happy!
Our class had fun visitors from Zizu University visit our classroom this week. We leaned origami, how to count in Chinese, calligraphy and play a hopscotch game. It was lovely to see our students interacting and learning with these brave young men and women.

Then Saturday night, the Ibby and her family, Cory, Joan, and Trenton and Bud and Betty came to town for confirmation at Ezekiel Lutheran on Sunday morning. The Blomgren's and I attended night two of the show...even better than the first night. A more responsive audience and just better timing in general.
Our son ACO had a BUSY weekend to put it mildly. On Friday, November 11, he played the part of Chip Tolentino in the River Falls production of the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. It was a production not like the blockbuster Seussical, but it was entertaining none-the-less. He enjoyed and played the part to its fullest potential.
