Meadow @ 5 Years


Meadow loves to read books, Wonder Woman and all superhero women, creating things out of paper and playing in the water.

We recently went to her second movie theater, movie. Of course it was Teen Titans Go! to the Movies.

 She's starting to get into chapter books and loves the Rainbow Fairy series.

I had read books to her almost every night for the past five years. Now it seems that Brooke and Meadow are getting into chapter books at bed.

She has also gotten braver with swimming, but still won't go down water slides or get her face wet.

I think going to Lake Harriet and wadding pools all summer really helped. I even got her to like fishing a bit.

She's getting better at talking to people.

This is still a work in progress, but it's OK to get to know someone before showing trust.

She still likes staying up late and sleeping in.

That's going to have to change soon. Kindergarten is coming.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
