Go Big Red!

It's never too early to start building that school spirit...

Bucky Badger admired Gavin's style and gave him some tips for doing push-ups and the polka. Gavin pondered how much cool stuff there is to learn between now and the fall of 2024 and whether Mike Leckrone will still be directing the Marching Band then.

Labor Day Weekend

We had a great holiday weekend -- a good combination of seeing family and friends and enjoying some family time at home, too. The weekend started off with pampering -- manicures and pedicures for the bridal party (of which I was a member) for my cousin Melanie's wedding.

That was followed by the rehearsal dinner, served family-style at an Italian restaurant. The Iverson and Pavolonis clans gorged themselves on spaghetti and meatballs, filet mignon and chicken marsala. Then the dessert came, yikes! We brought Gavin along and he enjoyed seeing family and staying up way past his bedtime.

Saturday brought the wedding day and we had a great time celebrating with Mel and Mike and seeing cousins who live out of state: Nick from Virginia, Emily from Kansas City, Jodi from Vegas and Ryan and Angie from Indianapolis. It's not too often we're all in the same place any more, so it was a lot of fun to catch up and dance the polka together.

We spent the rest of the weekend hanging out with Heather, Rick and the girls, including some back to school shopping with Anna that made me nostalgic for the days when we used to shop at Prange's and get our cords and sweaters even thought it was still 80 degrees outside!
