170/365. father’s day: 2015 edition.

tennis with odin ( CRUSHED HIM! ). “inside out” with odin ( awesome! ). aaand hockey practice with odin. all-in-all a spectacular father’s day. i did manage to squeeze in a 5 mile run too :-)

at the end of the day as i was putting odin to bed i thought it’d be fun to attempt a rare selfie with him and i. frida heard him laughing at all the failed shots and decided to check out what all the commotion was about.

day 4001 – 166/365. odin got elected to the coop board!

day 4001 - 166/365.  odin got elected to the coop board!

odin had his first summer camp experience at kamp kenwood which is operated by the wisconsin farmers union. we wondered if he’d miss us and if he’d have a great time. he most definitely did not miss us and most definitely did have an awesome time.

in addition to all sorts of regular fun summer camp stuff, they learn about cooperatives and become members of the camp cooperative store. of course, they need a board to help oversee coop activities and odin was very excited to tell us that he was voted by his peers to be a member of the coop board of directors!

it’s his first elected coop position. no word yet if he’s going to use the resume builder to run for the board of our local food coop.

day 4000 – 166/365. measuring growth over four thousand days.

day 4000 - 166/365.  measuring growth over four thousand days.

FOUR THOUSAND DAYS!

as if in anticipatory celebration of hitting that nice round number, odin just crossed 100 pound mark. and he recently crossed the 5 foot mark. at those stats he’s in the 90th percentile for height and 95th for weight ( not bad stats for a kid who was born 1 pound 7 ounces and just slightly longer than a ballpoint pen at birth ). i think i was about the same at his age, then i grew another foot over next couple of years.

he’s eating us out of house and home so i think we’re in for another growth spurt.

( it maybe is not obvious that we’ve been measuring his growth on this wall since he was 2 years old )

day 3970 – 136/365. odin represents the hockey association during a local syttende mai parade.

day 3970 - 136/365. odin represents the hockey association during a local syttende mai parade.

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.
