Kite Fest 2020

The kids like getting up early these days. And by early I mean 8:00. Theo has also decided he's suddenly too big for his high chair.

Isn't that late for you? For me that's way too early.

After Meadow broke her glasses ice skating last week we ordered her two new pairs so she'd have a backup. We had to expedite the order and they arrived today.

Needed those glasses before our trip to Mexico City.

Hey look who decided to match their dad!

Today was the Winter Kite Festival. 



Along the way the kiddos insisted on eating all the snow.


One child prefers to be pulled by the sled while the other prefers to walk on his own.

You two have this backward.

We met up with Shannyn, Brent and the kids.

This giant bright orange fox was a new addition this year.

Eleanor loves little Theo, but he just wants his space.

The parents flew kites while the kids played with the sled.

And picked on Theo.

We had already ate, but Brent and Shannyn got some tacos.

We figured we'd be getting enough of those soon.

Then we parted ways and headed back home.

Brooke insisted we cross the lake on the way back.

I like watching all the kites.

Meadow wanted to stay outside.

After dinner we took a trip to the American Mall to find shoes only to come back empty handed.

She's very indecisive. Maybe we'll get some cool shoes down in CDMX.

Namekagon River Camping

Scott has been wanting to go canoe camping on the St. Croix for a few weeks. 
More like a few years. Brooke decided on the windier Namekagon River branch of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.
We thought about going last weekend, but I was thinking it might be busy because of the 4th. 
We convinced Blake and Daniel to join us so we would have one car for drop off and one car for pickup. We met Blake at at the Riverside Landing, picked him up and met Daniel at our starting point at the County Road K Landing in Trego. 
Since we started in the evening we only went 5 miles before picking our campsite for the night. We chose campsite 29.7. Campsites are free and first come first served. 
It was a nicely wooded site but had lots of poison ivy.
We would find out that would always be the case. Basically don't venture into the woods.
We brought along Meadow's walkie talkie, which was perfect since we had two boats.
Theo's not used to being around other people quite yet. Also our camps…

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.

7 Days Down, 158 Days To Go

Umm, well I ended up having a longer Christmas break than I had originally thought. It went really well until the last few days.

I had dreaded this day since we met, I always knew it was going to come, but yet I ignored that it would ever happen. Saying goodbye to Scott was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I've had to do that so many times last year and I still have to do it. If I can get through January and February and I think I will be ok, or so I keep telling myself. I took out a second loan and it got denied, so I'm still as poor as ever until I can figure out what I'm going to do. I'm so glad school starts next week, being alone all day is very hard.



I left Scott Thursday night and headed back to Little Chute, which I was glad I did. We're having some family issues concerning my dad's business and the death of his friend. It tears me up to see him like this.

I wish I could've stayed home longer. I pretty much did, I left home early Sunday mo…
