Family News

Our youngest Grandson Adam is headed with his Vex Robotics team the Arctic Knights to The World’s!!!  The competition will take place in Louisville Kentucky in late April. It is quite an accomplishment for this young team from a little town in Minnesota.  The team is mostly 10th graders.

Four young men and two young ladies.

Headed for world competition

Adam the tall kid with the shades.

Last week our youngest daughter Jennifer was the recipient of the NISOD award.  (National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development)  She was nominated by her peers because of her contribution to student learning and success. 

Congratulation to Adam and Jennifer on your accomplishments.  We are very proud of you!!

Jen is focused her boys not so much 

Here you can see how focused Jen is…her “boys” not so much.  But it is a photo that makes me smile.

Far Guy continues to improve everyday and he is getting stronger.  He is walking about 3,000 steps a day.  (He was at 6,000 before he got sick.)

  10. Congrats to ALL the winners in your family as you have many! So glad to hear Far Guy is getting stronger. I need to get a fitbit and start counting my steps and walking again. I can't take the girls anymore as they can't do it for as long as I need to. I think that's why I've been putting it off. It won't be the same without them tagging along. Have a great day!

  12. Congratulations to Adam and Jennifer! I think it is great the schools have the robotics competitions. I'm so happy to hear Far Guy is doing better. Does he use a fitbit? I had one a year ago and did a good job keeping my steps up then it broke and I got out of the habit. I got a new one Christmas and I was surprised at how difficult it was to get even close to the # of steps I was previously getting. Those fitbit type devices really do help us to be aware of the amount of exercise we are getting.

  13. The informal shots are sometimes the best. You can see it is a close family in that shot and Jen is stuck with all of the guys. The contests like that are so fun for the kids. I am happy for all those steps. When virus bug was hanging heavy around here I couldn’t do the basement stairs. Far Guy has the determination to get the job done. I would find it hard to walk that many steps in the house.
