Summer is here! And… well rain and wind and storms on the way. In fact, not only in Minnesota but devastatingly so in Alberta specifically Calgary, High River and portions of Southern Alberta. We lucked out with the weather never really hitting here but Joe and Faithe had downed branches and worse on their street as well as multiple days of no power. Bree had some of the same in the city as well! I know that that is done and gone (since this is a delayed post) but the clean up in both areas remains. It is hard to see what all happened around my friends and family up north and not be able to be there with them. Thankfully our friends and family on both sides of the border made it through fine.
After we continued with our Independence Day learning Emanuel was ready to get back to his dig. He is loving the process, as slow as it may be, AND the chance to boss around his helpers. He is quite generous with both compliments AND tool sharing for the most part.
The kids behaved in vehicles for the last week+ so they earned their bubble machine. We found out that it requires the Gazillion brand bubbles so there is some more bubble shopping to do but the first round was AMAZING. Other bubble brands just don’t compare with the dripping technique and the speed of the air going through.
Though once the sun came out out went the kids. The weather was so horrible that Nana and Baba returned with the cousins in tow. The water level was too high near the campsite and with Joe and Faithe still home watching for power and downed branches it was not worth staying.
Weather did not cooperate but we found fun anyway. And the kids got bonus time with their cousins before Nana and Baba left for Mexico!
