Indian Summer

Every year, the weekend after Labor Day, the Summerfest grounds hosts Indian Summer. Every year, Craig's school, ICS, goes on Friday on education day to teach other students about Native Americans. We go Saturday or Sunday, mostly to eat Indian tacos and shop from the Native artists. This year Craig's parent's came along. Drew saw the sky glide "ride" and insisted on being stubborn until he got to go on it. I had a couple talks with him about how he would ride it when we were ready. After his ride, we enjoyed the yummy food, a couple drinks, and watched the competition dances.

You can see the teepee way off behind Kelsey

He's hanging on!

So this has nothing to do with Indian Summer but Kelsey started ballet at the same gymnastics studio they attend. I couldn't help but get a pic of her last week when she had her full "gear" on. Totally adorable.

First Day of 4K

Some of you have seen these photos on Facebook. But these are all of them that I took that day. So far the first week has gone well. Both teachers called to update us and said they seem to be adjusting well. They participate in class, are making friends, appear happy during the day, Drew naps during every rest time! I expected them to be much more tired when I pick them up and even at night but they are going on like troopers. I do get scolded in the car on the way home for asking too many questions! Thankfully I see their teachers as they are walking other kids out to the buses and they update me if there was anything unusual that happened. So they are in separate 4K classes but they save seats for each other at the lunch table and play together at recess and have breakfast every morning together before going into class!

First day complete!

It's fuzzy, but this is Drew's teacher showing Kelsey how
to polka at a beer garden on Friday evening :)

Weekend with the Cousins!

Two weekends ago we headed to Wausau to hang with family before everyone started school. We were hoping for a little bit nicer weather but the only positive was it didn't rain like it did in Milwaukee. Since the weather wasn't all that awesome, Uncle Dale to us to where he works, to see all the tractors/farm equipment he sells. Drew was in heaven.

Hey we fit in this tractor's tire!

Of course we have to sit in it!

This was the big chopper Drew got to drive around 

Always sat in the buddy seat and always put on the seatbelt!
She's over the tractors...

It was a little rainy at home when we left that morning
and they were so cute sharing the umbrella

Drew was pretty determined to go fishing while we were there. And every time he mentioned fishing, Kelsey said the girls should go shopping. So Sunday the fog cleared up and the boys headed out. The girls did some strong work shopping, finding amazing deals and finished the day with ice cream for lunch! It was a fun little weekend and I hope we can do it more often!
