Fall is here

The rain has begun and the leaves are falling. Just in time for Halloween. Nolan has the cough from he’ll that is preventing him from sleeping. He looks and sounds like death.

Meanwhile I go do a grocery run on the dummy while there is a break in the rain.

Bad dog

Scout decided that he didn’t like his outdoor bed. Instead of leaving it alone and just not using it, he had to tear it into a million pieces for me to pickup. Damn dog.

Traveling kids

Lately I started taking one of Tulia’s friends to school on the mornings. Here is a picture of them riding on the big dummy.

I’ve also recently tries putting Nolan in the backpack. Despite how he looks, he seems to enjoy it.

All these different ways to transport kids are such a nice alternative to driving them around. I feel like I’ve been more engaged with them. Plus the lack of traffic and exercise is great.

A little peace in the hustle and bustle

It seems like we are always rushing around to this appontment or that activity. Today was no different.

While lisa was at gymnastics with Tulia, I went with Nolan to the ponds next door. I spent much of my childhood here fishing and biking.

I hope to share these experiences with my kids soon.

It has begun

I brought Tulia to big boys birthday party and it happened. She looked around and saw that most of the other kids weren’t with their parents.

I hung put far a little then she said, ” daddy I don’t want you here “. My heart sank. She is growing up.

Child labor works! Litterally!

Doing yard work sucks. But when you can talk your almost 4 year old into doing it for a juice box, it’s east!

Eating sweet potatoes

We went to fresh choice for dinner and Nolan ate sweet potatoes. He could have ate 50 of them.

A Mountain Cycling Ku version 2.0

I took Tulia to Fremont Older today.

I picked her up at school then we went there on the Big Dummy.  Carried her bike and a lunch that I packed.  Once we got to the preserve, I rode us up to the hayfield where it was a little less steep and pretty wide open.

Once we finished lunch in the shade, Tulia got on her bike and rode around a bit.  She was little timid about the uphills at first.  Then we went up to the top of the hill and proceeded to ride down.  She picked up speed but handled it well.  No panicing, she coasted and used her brakes.  At the end of the hill she looked at me ig wide eyes and said, “Daddy, that was fun! Can we do it again, and again, and again!?”

We shuttled up and down for about 5 times, then went home.

I’m a really proud dad.
