Everything Is 'Spacial' In Its Own Way

Moved *AGAIN*!!

Renner: Mom did it again!!!

So sorry for this inconvenience but Mom was having a lot of problems with our WordPress hosted site and was unable to do a lot of things we wanted her to do. So she finally just moved to Self-hosting the Special Peepol site.  Special Peepol’s url has changed once again but should now be staying the same for quite some time.

Mandy: Yeah….you all know how much we enjoy having you visit and talk with us all!  Please come and join us at our new site…we are still helping her work on it, though she is kind of stubborn.  So please come visit us on Special Peepol at http://spacialpeepol.sistertex.com

Mom promised she wouldn’t move  again!

Renner and Mandy: Thank you for your patience!!!

Some Smooth Moves

Soccer is big here where we live in Minnesota.  Blaine has the National Sports Center which is the world’s largest amateur sports and meeting facility.  Lots of soccer fields and lots of soccer.  Little guy decided it was high time he got involved! 

He has a lot of smooth moves which he had no problem exhibiting.

 

 

Sometimes you have to take a break.

 

Hummm…. light bulb moment!

 

More smooth moves coming up!

 

“Hey, this is cool, gotta’ show this to the guys!”

 

“Hey look at this! You can hang the field markers on your ears!”

 

Little Guy is truly an inspiration to his team mates.

 

And vice a versa.

 

 

“We bad…uh huh…you know it…we bad! Don’t mess with us…we bad!”

This is the stuff award winning athletes are made of! 

 

Nothing like an award and forced smile to end the perfect soccer experience. Winking smile

Soudan Mine

The above-ground facilities at Soudan Underground Mine State Park have  reopened, but the park is unlikely to be able to offer underground tours this summer. Until clean-up, repairs, and thorough safety inspections are completed, the DNR is unable to speculate on future underground tours. In March 2011 there had been a fire down inside the mine. You can see the story here.

The park plans to offer guided tours of the historic buildings above ground this summer. Like the underground tours, the above-ground tours will focus on the contributions of mining to the history and culture of Minnesota’s iron range.

Connected At The Hip

SONY DSC

Mandy and Renner…not really connected at the hip, though Mandy might be more than happy if it were true.  Mandy has been with us for about 6 months and though this very people shy girl has opened up she still does a lot of hiding behind Renner.  Renner was like that when he first came to us many years back but now is pretty comfortable at playing people shield and big brother to Miss Mandy.

Too much water!

SONY DSC

We have been to Pipestone before, but never with this much water.  It was pretty hard to check out the quarries as they had all turned into little ponds.

SONY DSC

The streams and waterfalls were swollen to the brim and rushing with power.

Still there was plenty of beautiful Pipestone to see and play on that was not underwater and we enjoyed the park just as much as before, especially seeing its ‘wet’ personality. Mother Nature does her share of dressing the park differently in accordance to the seasons.

Renner: “Hummm, that sign wasn’t here last time was it?”

Mandy: “I don’t think it was a big water bowl last time…..”

Ruby: “Maybe we should just get back to the car and hit a Dairy Queen on the way home!”

Renner: “Sounds like a plan, let’s go!”

Mandy: “I’m right behind ya big brother.”
