Field Trip



I went on a field trip with the first graders and it was just about as fun as when I was actually a first grader. Because BUS RIDE. I don’t know why that is eternally fun, but it is. Plus now I can’t even stop thinking about soil formation and insects. Living the life I’ve always wanted.

Mountain Bike For Life


First real ride at Murray Lake sans lightning storm!

And…on our way to Hickory Glen…





It’s happening. There is so much mountain biking going on right now. Of utmost importance, we are all mountain biking together and it is the most amazing family realization to date. There is no feeling like riding behind your five-year-old Hadley on her little Huffy Disney Princess bike (with baby “Fireworks” riding on back) and just watching a miracle unfold right before your eyes. Either mountain biking is a lot more intuitive than we give it credit for, or the muscle memory is handed down through DNA. Either way, it is truly a miracle in bravery and skill to witness and I wish you all could have the joy.

(Except for that one part where Bastien careens off a bridge. I will not wish watching that upon you).

Belated St. Patrick’s Day 2015

I forgot to tell you that the Leprechaun visited us again this year. He almost forgot! Indeed if it weren’t for the kids’ sieve memories moments before bedtime on March 16th, he would most certainly ALWAYS forget to visit our house. This year he left gold dollars. Bastien plans to save his until he has children so he can have evidence of the good ol’ days when leprechauns actually snuck into your house.
