someone is totally bummed to be done with fourth grade.
we got together around 20 players and parents to hand out syttende mai parade ( in honor of norwegian constitution day. yes, this is the same town where, if you look closely you might detect a hint of the local scandinavian heritage ).
hopefully we’ll get some new recruits for the association and maybe a few new organic fuel consumers
sometimes i’m surprised at how badly i can fail at capturing the moment. no posed shot of all the players on the truck. no action shot of them rollerblading around the float, handing out candy. no good shot of the truck with the great looking banners we had made. sigh.
so sad to have to take down the peach tree that was killed by the brutal winter before last.
you see that face? that’s odin’s fake smile because at this point he’s not exactly super happy to be helping me.
but lo – we did it – stump and all! and in relatively short order. while it’s a bummer to have to take her down, we’re planting one to replace her.
he’s standing in the center monologuing! the whole class did a great job in their school play. very proud of them all! while odin isn’t shy standing up in front of a crowd hasn’t been one of his strengths. doubly proud of him for doing in and projecting his voice.
odin in his garb. not quite as impressive without the eye patch ( d’oh! forgot to have him put it on ) but a great costume nonetheless!
