The House Is Still All A’Bustle!


We continue to take full advantage of our Christmas vacation by engaging in a number of our favorite activities.  Rolf and the big boys headed up to Solvang first thing Saturday morning to get a good day of skating in at the skatepark.  It still amazes me how the boys can jump back into the bowl and skate as well as they do especially since months can go by between skating treks to Solvang.  Thankfully, it was a fun, injury-free trip and a great start to Wilson’s “ultimate-boarder” week as he took off the following day for a snowboard trip with the church youth group and plans to surf on New Year’s day.

Way to go Maxo!!!!

Wilson in flight...

Sunday was Livy and Rudy’s turn as they headed off to the lake near our house with a bag of bread to feed the ducks.  The last time Rudy ventured out to feed the ducks he wasn’t able to focus on them very well so it was a real treat to see him get so excited this time…a clear sign of growth and progress.

It's official...Rudy likes ducks!

I think he likes his Daddy too...

...and his sister!

And so the week continues with a couple of visits with good friends, good football to be watched and good play!
