All Smiles

We had a very casual Bjorndahl Family Christmas the night before welcoming all the extended family.  Here's a favorite picture taken just before we opened presents.  (Lukey wouldn't slow down enough to be photographed!)

School Christmas Program

The boys had a sweet Christmas program at school this year.  It is extra special for us right now because the Kindergarten and First Grade classes do their programs, field trips and special projects together, so we always get a "two for one" experience!  Their classes sang a wonderful variety of songs worshipping the King!!

 Noah has 22 kids in his Kindergarten class.

 Erik only has 11 kids in his class!

Here's the whole group - are those choir robes adorable or what!  On the last day of school before vacation their classes were supposed to go to a local nursing home to carol and perform for the residents.  Unfortunately, we had a bad ice storm and school was cancelled.  I hope they can reschedule in January - the program was such a blessing and I would just love for them to share it again!

It was such a beautiful Fall!  Henrik and the kids were able to carve pumpkins on the deck without coats! 
 Carving was interrupted by a quick trip to the clinic for some "glue" to patch up Noah's wrist.  Guess we'll be a little more careful next year!

A Vikings football player, a dalmation puppy, Princess Ariel and Mario.  Quite an eclectic crew!

School Days

Let the effort begin! I miss blogging! And I miss terribly, the record keeping that it provides for our children. I'm not a scrapbooker, so blogging is it, and I'm determined not to let any more sweet memories slip away! It may not be ultra creative, or even consistent for that matter, but I'm going to get started and see if I can savor these sweet days a bit more!
To get started, we'll jump back a couple of months and share a few pictures from the beginning of the school year.
Noah is now in Kindergarten, and was all smiles and confidence on his first day of school. He has 22 kids in his class and a wonderful teacher and teaching assistant. Friends are very important to Noah, so recess is an obvious highlight for him everyday. He was very proud of his recent participation in the Thanksgiving Program at school, and loves to sing all the Kindergarten songs.
Erik is now in 1st Grade and is learning to read! It is amazing to see his understanding expand everyday. He seems to be enjoying every subject, but it's becoming evident, that his brain is wired for math. He just thinks about the world in a mathematical sort of way. Right now at school, running laps is his main focus. Every recess is spent running, earning his way to a t-shirt after he accomplishes 500 laps!
