We spent our evening with the Loflens.  Swimming and playing.  Oliver was in a mood for a short bit- Mom doesn't like those moods.  We're sleeping over and Oliver will have fun in the morning playing with his cousins while Mom takes a CPR class.  She'll be wishing she was walking in the Women's March though.

It was a nice day.

These two.

Oliver and I have talked a little bit about what's going on on Mom's school district.  She was at a board meeting last night.  She's glad people can find the humor working with an expired contract.    Oliver will like this picture.

Oliver is with his Dad now.  Mom will see him on Friday afternoon.

 Mom came home late tonight, Grammie spent the afternoon and evening with Oliver.   Oliver was waiting in the window for Mom as she drove up.  He came out to tell Mom sad news.  Our cousin, Dale, passed away suddenly today.  We have only been getting to know him and his family the last few years.  He was super funny and loved his family.  We're thinking about him, Sally, and Hannah.

This summer.  Dale is sitting next to Grammie.

His funny pants he wore the first time Mom met
him in 2015.  

His sweet, sweet family.

May he rest in peace.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Today is a day of service for many.  It can also be a day to just teach others kindness.  Mom taught Oliver the importance of opening doors for others, looking behind you to make sure no one is coming, and always holding it for others.  This is becoming a lost gesture.  Mom hopes that Oliver keeps practicing the gesture.

We spent awhile at Lake Dixson today.  Oliver didn't catch anything but he was real sweet and we chatted and enjoyed the beautiful weather.  

Trout Cove.

Mom's yoga stretch rock.

Fishing tackle.

Mostly happy kid.

Mom is glad he is home, she missed him.

Oliver hung out with Noah today.  They played darts, punched the punching bag, wrestled, and just hung out.  It's nice when Oliver has friends to play with.  Happy Sunday.

We had a restful day at home after Mom ran a half marathon and we swam at the Y together.  Back to work tomorrow for Mom and Tuesday for Oliver.  2018 here we come with our resolutions, goals, and hopes for our dreams to come true.
