Weekend at cottage with kid friends

Arthur and Lewis each brought a friend (Ottar and Josh) to the cottage for a few nights this weekend and it was such fun for everyone. I got to fish lots (we ate fish both nights!), the boys plays lots of Catan, made up weird games, swam all the time, they fished with me lots since fish were a-bitin'. Funniest was they walked to nearby campstore and apparently played weird pinball game for bouncy balls. Put a quarter in, get at least one, sometimes two bouncy balls. So they spent all their money on that and came back with pockets STUFFED with bouncy balls. 20-30 each. Then they traded like it was Halloween candy.

















Jumping off the bridge at Minnehaha Creek

This seems dangerous, and it probably is, but we went down and checked the depth, it's deep! And tons of kids and families have been jumping off lots. Here's Art showing his sisters how to do it. The twins were going to do it, then not, then going to, and eventually, right before we were going to leave, Bailey did it. And then Netta had to. Summer fun!

2nd graders for one last day.

This was Bailey and Netta's last day of 2nd grade. Next year they're gonna be big third graders at the bigger Keewaydin school. Exciting! Scary! Forward moving!

A Jessica look-a-like

Art said, "Bailey looks just like Mama, I can really see her face in there." And Bailey said, "thanks so much, Art!"

Art's play!

Art was in a play at his school Upper Mississippi Acadamy that was written and produced by the kids. Called The Other World. It was pretty inspired and fun, all based on Disney characters but entirely different, too. Here are some photos!
