Saturday Stuff

Evelyn upcycled all over the house, while Max lounged, chatted with friends, and read before Reds winter workouts.  Busy bees, 1 and 2!


Double Digits, Double the Fun

The girls got wild and crazy at Meghan's spa birthday party.  Facials, manis, pedis and a runway show - oh my!

Plate Tectonics

Fun with graham crackers and icing at the end of the plate tectonics unit. Science is fun.  And tasty!

Conference Time

The kids got rave reviews at their conferences for being bright, engaged students with well-developed senses of humor.  They were both identified as leaders among their peers and people the teachers can count on to lead a project to completion or to chime in when noone else is willing.  Go Bryan Bobcats!


I just want to read with you

While Max slept over at the Burnett's, Evelyn enjoyed a special movie night, read-in, and sleepover with Mom and Dad!


Day Off, Day Out

School is closed for parent-teacher conferences, so the Maxes headed to ice skate after a sleepover while Evelyn and I escorted Piper to her annual check-up.

Chef's Night

Max made fish tacos with Old Bay tater tots for a delicious twist on Taco Tuesday.


Van Gogh

We were all underwhelmed by the interactive Van Gogh exhibit, though did learn some fun facts about his works.  900 paintings and 1,100 drawings in his career, producing new works every 36 hours.  Amazing.


Detectives at Work

Girl Scouts studied fingerprints, wrote with invisible ink, and solved MURDERS.  Fun day with fun girls!

That's Amore

Evelyn prepared deep dish pizza, complete with thrown crusts, in an authentic Italian restaurant environment.  Deeeeeeeee-lish!

Engineering for Good

Max completed his Engineer for Good project - a battery-powered alternative to light and run fans in a home without access to reliable power - and brought it in to present this morning.  6th grade science is pretty fun!

Chef's Kiss

Max made toasted ravioli, homemade marinara dipping sauce, and chili cheese fries (from scratch - even the fries!) for dinner, followed by banana chocolate shakes for dessert.  It was all delicious - we are grateful to his Secret Santa for gifting him the ballpark cookbook!  He also whipped up a strawberry lemonade cocktail for Conrad and himself Saturday afternoon.  Not to be outdone, Mom made delicious homemade pretzels for a cold weather baking day project.  Delicious all around!

Evelyn aced the pageant!



We had a super-relaxing family day to celebrate Mom, followed by fireplace family time, Guapo's, Survivor, and peppermint ice cream.


Snow Day Style

Blue and purple hair, and fashions for Piper and Evelyn.

The glow of a new semester

The Bobcats are back today for a couple of days of virtual learning before we get back to the classroom.  The LED lights the kids got for Christmas add the perfect Je ne sais quois to the virtual classroom.

Snow Day Staycation

We woke up to a 47 degree house and decided it was worth the splurge to stay-cay somewhere with some heat.  So off we went to the Embassy Suites Old Town for dog snuggles, cable TV, lunch, and a walk to Hooray for Books for new reads before grabbing cocoa and cookies for an afternoon read-in.  Lemonade officially made from the frozen lemons of this storm!

Snow Day!

What a fun surprise to have school canceled through Wednesday and 3+ inches and falling to greet us on the first day back to school.
