Hubbard Street Farewell...

 This afternoon Leif and I watched this gorgeous group of dancers demonstrate everything they had learned during the past four weeks with Hubbard Street. Emma has maintained her friendships over the years with folks like this awesome guy and also added a to her friend group in big numbers this summer. Each one of them is insanely talented and I was an honor to watch them today.  While it was hard for all of them to part ways I know they could all use a rest.
 We scooped up our tired and sore dancer after her performance and treated her to a bowl full of miso ramen to celebrate the day.  After that we were all super lazy for the rest of the day.
So PROUD of our AMAZING Emma Grace!

A Pretend Life...

Dinner and a Movie...

Tonight all four of us headed to Elmhurst to enjoy some super good eats at Zenwich before seeing Ghostbusters.  It was just a regular night out with the people I love the very best!

Strive Sports Challenge...

To say Finn came back from STRIVE Sports challenge a better young man is a total understatement.  He won these boots and practically wore the out in the same week! He made friends to last a lifetime and learned a great deal about importance of compassionate leadership both on and off the pitch.
 In a funny twist our family friend was a trainer on the day focused on teamwork. It was a treat to receive this picture of the two of them together.
He returned fit, inspired and more than a little emotional. Saint Patrick even featured his experience on their website.  He was hornored to attend and though we missed our boy like crazy, we know he is eager to return to the camp next summer for more learning and fun. 

And even though he is feeling a little sad his STRIVE experience has come to an end Fitz and Jordan could not be happier he is back under their roof!

Fitz and "Friend"...

Fitz has befriended a real live baby opossum living in our back yard. They have been enjoying middle of the nigh rendezvous where they play and cuddle and Fitz will even carry the little creature around in his mouth.  He has not hurt it and despite the whole scene being very slobber filled they seem to get along just fine in the light of the moon.  Urban living is strange sometimes.
