Finally the perfect weather for family bike rides! After one great, windy one, and then an entire day outside at Wildlings, we shuffled off to Great Wolf Lodge for a few days indoors. Altho I did make the kiddos walk to dinner across the entire parking lot, a full mile, without considering the incessant wind and our wet hair and the 30º weather. Making memories!

We stopped + browsed the Trail Through Time, near Fruita, on our way across Colorado, picking out the bones of dinosaurs all along the 2-mile trek + reading signs about “desert patina” + “erosion” that explained the terrain. Rosetta took pictures of her entire hike to piece into a stop-motion of the trip, which ends up with 20 seconds worth of views for 200 photos.

Hope everyone enjoyed their Valetine’s Day as much as we did! Cards, candy + miscellany were exchanged with friends at our Wildling group party (one day early), plus some musical chairs + dancing. We had a family exchange as well. Because they live too far away to come, Rosetta sent a long letter to her grandparents in Kansas, plus individual cards from both kids, along with a pile of chocolate, their favorite.

We’re grappling with the swing of life, trying to get a better hold this week. Or at least I am. Everyone’s got loads of energy, ahead of spring, and I’m trying to leash that into more activities that require attention + movement. We bought the kids new bikes, after a long search together, and have been on several rides already. Plus we picnicked – in what turned out to be freezing wind – and had a great time revisiting old nature haunts, just the three of us.

This week, we moved my parents into the Westminster home they’ll share with my youngest sister. The kids moved boxes, rearranged furniture + pulled down wallpaper. We’re excited to be able to see grands without skipping town for a week each trip, and it should free up some actual vacation space.

All I do here is document the edges of our life, and I am always surprised by how many categories of learning the items fit into. We learn so much just by hanging out with people, enjoying our everyday with them.

July 17 -Two Weeks’ Worth of Photos

Our whole week at home, following vacation, we struggled to summon the required energy to make lunches + get out the door. When we did, we liked it. Mostly, though, we didn’t, completing many forgotten home projects + enjoying rearranging + cleaning our daily spaces around here.

We managed to avoid the afternoon thunderstorms that plagued us last year, and spent 8-9 hours outside every day. Coming home after that to iPads and video games feels like a letdown to me. The kids are super excited for online play, where I’m ready to move to the woods!
