The Lieslands

simply livin' it up


Susan joined Lucia today for CAFEBA – Crossroads Annual Fourth grade Excellent Biking Adventure. The fourth graders bike 5 miles from school to a park, have lunch, and then bike back to school, stopping at Dairy Queen on the way. Lucia has been looking forward to this for a while. A good time was had by all.

Lucia Orchestra Concert

Lucia had her final orchestra concert of the year tonight. The theme was Take Me Out to the Ballgame and they played a bunch of songs along with a narrated story. It was fun.

Pool Time

It isn’t the warmest yet, but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying the pool. I think the water was in the upper 60s today.

We opened the pool today. It was 50 degrees out with 25mph winds, but we went for it. Now all of the “Birch Worms” have a nice place to land.
