It’s hard to believe that just 2 weeks ago we had snow. Instead, we spent most of the day Saturday mowing up our leaves. 15 bags worth (and that is the big lawn and leaf kind)–and that was only the back yard. But before we cleaned up the yard, the kids enjoyed a rather nice,… Continue reading From Winter to Fall
Well, it’s already begun…Bryce received his first phone call from a (gasp) girl. There’s nothing like answering the phone only to hear this high-pitched voice on the other end saying, “Is Bryce there?” uh and who is this? Dariann. Last year “the” girl was Naomi. At least the whole conversation was about ladybugs and spiders… Continue reading Is Six the new 13?
I find it hard to believe it was that warm this weekend, but it was. And now look at the weather. The high today is supposed to be low 30’s. Oh, well. At least I’m getting a little break from beet harvest ;-). We didn’t even get as much snow as some places (6-12 inches… Continue reading 80 Degrees On Sunday?
There’s just nothing like seeing your 3yr. old’s brain growing! As she’s watching Bambi this morning, Abbi begings to ask me the deep questions. “Mommy, what happened to Bambi’s mommy? Why did she fall down? Is she dead? (we get the dead question often ever since our fish Oscar died about 5 months ago) Is… Continue reading Deep thoughts with…..Bambi?
The last few weeks have just gotten away from me. I guess just trying to get back into a routine will do that. The house sure is quieter with Bryce back in school. Abbi is pretty good at entertaining herself and Cambria is just her own little person now, too. My newest endeavor (Jenn) has… Continue reading Routines and more routines
Bryce had his first day of 1st grade today! But he’s still at that age when you ask him what he did in school, the answer is almost always an, “I don’t know…” comment. Although he usually can remember what he had for lunch! Must be a boy thing. I guess he did tell me… Continue reading By the way, it was pizza
What a fun and busy weekend we had! It was Karlstad’s centennial celebration this weekend, and there were lots of activities to keep us busy. First we had a parade with over 200 entries (for a town of 800, that’s just crazy). Rick rode in the ambulance since he’s squad chief. The kids thought that… Continue reading If only it wasn't every 100 years….
Well, here’s my new “baby” sister, Ashley Michelle Gunderson. Doesn’t she look like she fits right in? We had a special family get-to-gether with all of us siblings home and had a “WELCOME to the FAMILY” party. Talk about coming into many roles at once–a daughter, granddaughter, sister, auntie, niece, cousin…..and all Gunderson’s on top… Continue reading Here she is…
No, we did not spend a whole month on vacation, but it has been a little crazy since we’ve been home, and therefore we have not written anything. What a fun time we had on vacation. First we went to the Gunderson family reunion. Then off to MT to fish. We went to the beautiful… Continue reading We're Baaaaaack!
We are leaving for vacation tonight (family reunion this weekend then loads of mindless fishing for the rest of the week). It should be fun living with the kids in a tent for 10 days 😉 I may have to talk with them about dad’s “no man’s land”… haha. We’re just praying that it’s neither… Continue reading Run Away! Run Away!
