for reasons that are clear only to odin he decided to write his name on the sidewalk, not in front of our house, but down the street on the corner.
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.
coming home from hockey practice at the omnicenter, odin and i stopped to admire the view. looking northwest across the river, belle island to the left and rosebud island to the right.
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!
the first day of spring was a few days ago and with no snow on the ground for some time, lots of folks just put away shovels for the season. of course, mother nature didn’t get the memo about winter being over.
it could get heavier overnight with 8 inches of total accumulation possible! odin’s betting there’s a good chance for school delay or cancellation
whoohoo! odin’s team beat appleton 7-0 to take third place trophy in the waupaca super squirt tournament! so proud of the whole team for playing their best and bringing home another trophy!
the team hoists the trophy.
odin accepts his medal.
