Theo Moves Into His Room

Theo's room was officially ready. Minus a few things like a bed, rug and his picture rail. But he has been ready to have his own room.

It'll do until I can get a hand to put up the picture rail.

Big pancake was requested for breakfast. 

Brooke always says that she's so bored with everything I cook. I never get sick of big pancakes.

Theo's been sleeping in an epic fort for months, so I had to make it happen in his room.

Now he's happy. 

The kids have to get their Switch time in right away in the morning. 

We had some gift cards from Christmas to use to buy more plants. I feel like every year we go too late and most things are picked over. Today seemed like a good day but I guess we were too early as not a ton of veggie plants were out yet. I also learned a lot of plants can't go outside until the low is over 50 degrees. 

We got some native plants plus some with color. Since our house is green now it kind of blends in with the trees, we need more color in the yard. 

We're going to need a lot of flowers.

Meadow was sleeping over at a friends house so I walked her over. It's too bad they don't live a little closer so she could walk over herself. 

The freeway in-between doesn't exactly help.

With Theo's room done it was time to start on Meadow's room. 

Well, I was busy sanding the other side of the house.

Not even May and I was all ready to prime. Maybe I'll get this painting done before it gets hot.

Meadow's strap adjuster on her backpack broke.

I replaced it for her. 

I spy some of our old books in the little free library. 

With Meadow gone for the night we got to treat Theo.

We decided to walk over to Nighthawks.

Theo settled for buttered noodles. Kids.

Who knows what we ate, but the food was good and the ambiance is on point.

We told Theo when we got home we would play Settler's of Catan with him. He didn't know what it was and now he's hooked. 

Catan Junior to be precise. Don't think he's ready for the adult version quite yet.

Can't wait to get his room filled up and art on the walls.

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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears . I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

Two Years As Homeowners

I have to admit, being a homeowner is hard. There are a million things I want to do with this house. The two things that are keeping me from doing those things are money and time. I hate when people use the excuse "I don't have time" because really you do, you just put what you think are priorities first.  Were also not the handiest people. I have many projects waiting for the help of my dad. Like sanding our floors. I've never done anything like it before so it scares the crap out of me to try it. I can only hope that a year from now things will look a lot different and that I can maybe get a few things that I'd like to see done, get done.  And with that here are some progress photos from the last 2 years.  Our closet 2010 2012 2010 2012 Upstairs bathroom 2010 2011 2012 I hope this is finished before next year.
