September 23rd, 2016

Mom had another difficult week. This time it was work that made her disappointed. But we remembered to write something up, so this one will be longer!
One of Mom’s friends from work went to Minneapolis and the Mall of America. In the Mall of America is an American Girl store! She bought Mom some things! We have now a new AG Mini friend! She is an Addy holiday doll!

We have also been playing with an app on the phone called Prisma. Have any of you heard of it? It takes your pictures and turns them into works of art!
We are really impressed with the app. What do you think? Do you have any photo editing apps that you like?
Talk to you later!

September 15th, 2016

We spent today watching Graham instead of writing our blog entry. Now Mom has to go to work. She takes me with, but she takes the iPad and the phone inside with her. (I stay in the car!) So I can't write an entry by myself. We've been doing so well on posting that we don't want to break our streak. I'll write more tonight.

Hello everybody!! How are things for all of you? Mom has had a moderately stressful last couple of days again, so this is going to be another short entry. But since it’s important to us that we keep on blogging, we’re going to keep this up!
I thought I would tell you about a few Twitter people that we follow. Mom checks her Twitter all the time, but mine once or twice a week. I thought I would share one of Mom’s new follows and one of mine!

We have been watching Miss Fisher’s Mysteries for a while. Mom posted a picture of a shirt that she bought online with Miss Fisher on it. (Technically it was Jack Robinson!) Every Cloud Productions, the production company behind Miss Fisher, retweeted it! So we had to follow them, of course!

While we have been following Pink Bunny’s blog for a long time, we recently found her Twitter feed. Her humans take her all over! They’re especially fond of Disney parks. They go behind the scenes to all these cool restaurants and things like that.
Do any of you follow any interesting twitter people? Mom and I are on Twitter. I am on Twitter here, and she is here. We don’t tweet about anything terribly interesting, but we like it all the same!
Talk to all of you next week!

September 2nd, 2016

Hello everybody! How are you? I’m all right. Things have been pretty calm around here. I guess you don’t get to pick which kind of exciting you get, so boring is all right.

We spend a lot of time watching Graham. Yesterday, he fell asleep while sucking on my ear! It was kind of gross, but at least he wasn’t chewing on me. He army crawls now really fast! Mom spends a lot of time crawling around on the ground with him. I’m usually safe on a chair though!
The past few days have been much cooler around here. We’re hoping that fall is going to stay. Do you like fall? Mom and I like the cooler weather. The trees are so pretty when they change colors! Did you know that the trees are actually always those pretty colors, but the green chlorophyll just covers it up? When the tree goes dormant, it stops making chlorophyll, and the other colors are visible! (These are things you learn when you really, really like trees!)
Hope you’re all having a great day! Talk to you later!

August 26th, 2016

Yesterday, my mom, Graham, Oliver, and Caleb were driving to be with Mom’s sister (Graham’s mom) for lunch. Mom spotted something on the road, and went back to see—and it was a turtle!
2016-08-25 10.55.14
It was about five inches across. When Mom walked up to it, it didn’t seem to care, but when Oliver got closer, it scooted the rest of the way across the road! Mom says that technically, Oliver rescued the turtle! After Mom got home from lunch, we looked it up. It turned out to be a painted turtle!  That was all very exciting!
This was the first wild turtle that we’ve seen in a while. We live in between the country and the suburbs. There is a swamp nearby and a man made lake across the road. We saw a snapping turtle a while ago that was pretty big. This one was tiny in comparison. But we saw some pictures of baby painted turtles while we were looking for the ID, and this one was probably at least two years old.
That was our excitement for the week! Have any of you seen a wild turtle?

August 19th, 2016

Good afternoon, everyone! How are you? Things have been pretty quiet around here. Mom’s week went by slightly better, so we will have a longer post today.
Mom’s nephew, Graham, has decided that my nose is tasty. Mom, Graham, and I sit on the rocking chair and rock him to sleep. When he’s falling asleep, he tries to chew on my nose! Mom catches him, but I’m afraid she’s not going to catch him just once and he’s going to chew my nose off! He’s got two teeth now and they’re sharp!
Mom is currently working on her family tree. She was contacted by someone who lives in northern Wisconsin about a gentleman named Warren Holmes. It lead her on a genealogy journey to discover that she is very faintly related to Elizabeth Cady Stanton!

My mom took this picture today. (She’s the blue jeans in the lower right corner!) This is Oliver and Graham waiting for Graham’s dad to come and pick him up! I thought it was so cute that I had to share!
Talk to you all next week!

August 12th, 2016

Good afternoon, everyone! Mom has been having a bad week, so she wants to go to bed soon.
Mom and I spend a lot of time reading. Mom mostly likes nonfiction books. We mostly read books on the ipad. We’re currently reading two books. One of them is called the Gene, by Siddhartha Mukherjee. It is about the discovery of DNA and what we have been doing with it. Mom thinks it’s really interesting—but I think it’s kind of boring. But she reads books with me that she thinks are boring, so it’s all even in the end! What are you all reading? We’d love recommendations! We’re also interested in reading books in Dutch!
Since a post isn’t the same without a picture, here is a picture of Oliver. He has been helping me keep Mom’s mood up!

I hope you’re all having a good day! Talk to you later!
