What’s New and Stuff to Do

“Why is it that whenever I feel inspired and motivated enough to give this blog a thorough updating, it’s when I only have a few minutes to do so?”

The above quote was the beginning of a post to this blog that I started last night and then quickly saved and abandoned when something interrupted me.  I think that would be funny as a stand-alone-post, but since I have more to add today – and actually a few minutes to do it! – I’m going to just keep writing.  Quick!  While I have the chance!  Right?

No, seriously though, something is going to interrupt me again.  It’s only a matter of time.  So I’ll try and be quick with this update.  I’ll start it with a video of Eila in her “new” boots (new to Eila, used to belong to the lovely Lottie)…



Now I’ll tell you a few things (unrelated) and then wrap up with another video.  That is… unless something interrupts me.

Things to tell:

  1. Kane’s rocking his job back at Laika!  It’s such a great company to work for, and they do amazing work there.  Kane’s so happy to be a part of their team.  They’re working on a movie called Box Trolls, that’s due for release actually on S and D’s birthday in October of 2014!
  2. Speaking of birthdays, Kate’s is tomorrow!  The family will be heading to Portland tomorrow for some fun birthday adventures, followed by a cozy stay in a queen sized guest room at the Kennedy School.
  3. Speaking of tomorrow, Shaelyn and Davia start their “We-Build Robotics” class at the Saturday Academy in Portland tomorrow morning, where they will be building and engineering robots made of legos!  (The class was an awesome Christmas gift from Grandma Bubba.)
  4. Speaking of Shaelyn, guess who is the student council representative for her class this semester?  It’s Shaelyn!  We’re so proud of her for taking the initiative, and having the courage, to apply, and we’re thrilled that she was elected.  Go Shaelyn!
  5. Both Davia and Shaelyn just earned shining marks on their second report cards of the year, and they’re both apparently star students.  Great job, girls!
  6. Eila has a new dance move that involves hearing music, pausing, wiggling her head ever so slightly, and then dropping her butt to the floor for some major wiggling.  It’s awesome.  Don’t know where she got it though.  That’s actually not one of my moves.
  7. Kate’s very excited to be starting her small business class next month.
  8. Everyone’s very excited that Bubba’s coming to visit in a couple weeks.
  9. Oh, and on President’s Day weekend, we have plans to visit the Oregon coast for the first time.  We’ll go to the aquarium (thanks to another Christmas present, from Grandpa Jim) and stay the night in a yurt at Beverley Beach State Park.  Fun!

So there’s a lot of fun going on right now and a lot of good things to look forward to.

Now quick!  Before that interruption comes, let’s get another video in here!



That’s all for now.  Hope you all have a very fun and relaxing Kate’s-Birthday Weekend!!  Love to all.
