Meadow Goes to School and a Sleepy Sunday

We had got back from northern Minnesota a couple days before Meadow had to start school. On that Monday I had no time to do anything. I wanted to take Meadow on an adventure before she was at school everyday.

The day before school started I took Meadow and Theo to Lindstrom. We got lunch at the Swedish Inn.

Then we got some treats at the Lindstrom Bakery.

Meadow was super excited for the molasses gingerbread bear.

Of course, we had to stop by the Franconia Sculpture Park.

They always get to go without me.



Meadow's never happier than a couple hours running around, checking out the strange and beautiful sculptures.

She was also loving her Batgirl pose.

This time she was really into this mirror sculpture.


She's suddenly become quite the fashion model. Funny kid.

Then our little Meadow had her first day of school. 

Wonder Woman lunchbox. Check.

Cool shoes. Check. She was ready for a day at her new school.


Theo didn't like that his buddy was leaving him alone at home.




At the end of the day she stood a bit taller.

The following Monday was Labor Day. We had stayed in town, I shot my buddies wedding, the family attended and we didn't do much of anything that Sunday. Monday was more of the same.

Meadow requested chocolate Big Pancake with sprinkles.

Since coming back from our trip our house has been in chaos. This is my I finally got the living room clean dance.

This is my "she just put everything in the hamper for me to put away days later" face.

Not everyone gets to stay home all day.
Do you like the living room clean Theo?

Yes, yes I do.

Onto the dining room.

Meadow wanted to see how big Theo is.

We lounged around the house, cleaned up and made a grocery list.

Today we didn't have much going on for a Labor Day. Since we had that wedding on Saturday we stuck around the city. It's been a long time since we haven't done anything on this holiday weekend.

We're almost always at the cottage or on another adventure for Labor Day. Instead we went grocery shopping. To our surprise the co-op was open and Costco was closed. 

Theo loves avocado.

He's become so hands on. I remember not too long ago he'd be dropping anything you handed him.

Theo helped me prep dinner. Cauliflower and corn tacos are hard to beat.

Such a easy and tasty summer meal.

Before bed Theo checked out Meadow's tent bunk. She's a little rough with him sometimes. He was not having it.

Usually he doesn't mind being by Meadow.

It's just the start of their love-hate relationship.

Money DOES Buy Happiness

I got a wake up call when I realized all the loans I took out for school actually went for school. I'm only working part-time at Menards now which is just enough to pay the rent and bills. My phase of being poor wasn't really a phase, but actually permanent. I took out another loan so I would have extra cash to feed me (being poor is the best diet). I won't see that money for another month which means no time off for a Christmas break. I have to wait a few more days to find out if I even get Christmas Eve off. This is by far the sadest Christmas ever for me. It doesn't even feel like Christmas. Only one house on my street put lights up, I'm used to everyone in my whole town putting up lights. Plus we don't have a tree or any decorations and we haven't had any snow yet. I did get a Christmas present from Menards, 55 dollars in Menards money and this. In two weeks someone I love and care about very deeply will be in London for 5 months and I only get to s

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in. I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it. School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class. Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to l

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry. I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.
