Theo @ 5 Years



Oh Theo, who thinks his name is Theo and nickname is Theodore.

And occasionally Forest.
He's the biggest sweetheart. Always up for hugs and kisses. 

Except when he's throwing a hissy fit. Way too much like me.
He's our little math genius, still unsure of the alphabet or how to write his name, but can do simple multiplication or subtraction in his head.  

We were walking through Target recently and he was figuring out how much more money he'd need to get that perfect toy.

He loves video games, playing with Meadow, building structures with his Magnatiles and nimming his blankie. 

I caved in and let him keep it until is completely in shreds.

He has strong opinions and isn't afraid to tell you.

I wonder where he got that from (hint: me).

Theo is still shy around kids and more willing to talk to adults.

How did our shy kids become opposites?

Mille Lacs for the Day

Yesterday I made yogurt and today it was ready to go in the fridge. 

An Art Show and a Berry Good Day

Warning! Lots of photos ahead. Indeed. There are even photos of photos in this post. With the help of my soon-to-be brother-in-law, Blake, I put up my first photo show, "Mapping Disaster," as a part of the FLOW Art Crawl in North Minneapolis. Sadly a day after the show and before a Sunday shift at Geek Squad we had to take the project down. As you guys may remember a tornado hit our hood in May. During the two weeks after the storm I went out and photographed and recorded my neighbors in North. When I heard about this year's FLOW I submitted my idea for a mapped out photo installation with the photos and field recordings. I had just a half a month to get all the images printed and the audio ready.  Somehow I pulled it off (with a little help from my friends). The installation cost more than I wanted, but with Blake's help it worked out way better than I expected. I even ended up getting interviewed by KSTP. What was even better was the r

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin
