Kids 2017

This post is about the posting in Facebook and other social media about kids spirit and how as parents we should try not to tame their spirits.  That the most difficult kid can still sometimes end up being the world changer.

Channel that energy, not damping the spirit.

Then I hear a neighbor kid.  We would know when he is awake or when they are eating because all of the sudden there will be peace in the neighborhood.  Otherwise, it was just shouting of LOOK AT ME,  DO THIS,  DO THAT all day long until he have to eat or sleep.

We would hear the parents shushing the dogs, but not the kid.  The kid happened to be louder and more non-stop than the dog.  Why shush the dog but not the kid?  Then it reminds me of this post.

Not taming the spirit out of them may be a way of raising presidents or leaders or CEOs.  So if this is how we should raise them, when should we discipline them.  When do we tell them to keep quite there are neighbors who can hear them, when do we tell them to stop demanding or whining?

I wonder where the line draws on having the kid screaming the whole day and when to tell him to keep it quite.  If you want to keep him presidential do you have to listen to all the whining and demands all day long?




Lake 4th of July 2017







The lake is a beautiful, peaceful place we go whenever we can.  On this 4th of July weekend.  It was serene.  Until the darkness comes and most of the neighbors started with their fireworks.  We love watching the show having fun watching it from around the lake and across the cross.  The show started from Thursday until the Tuesday night which was the 4th.  It was spectacular , we enjoyed watching it.  Except for Bandit.  The poor dog don't like it at all, he would pant and try to hide himself in any small room/area he could find.

The OutLaw Music Festival 2017


The Joe Louis Arena is scheduled to be demolished, this would most likely be our last visit to the arena.


July 8 2017, The Outlaw Music Festival Tour 2017 in Michigan. We were early, were there at 0300 in the afternoon.


Micah Wilson


Lukas Wilson


Sheryl Crow



Bob Dylan




Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit.



The concert finished at about 1030 and we left just a little after that.  With road constructions, we were home at about 1:00 that night.  Vyn said:  That concert lasted two days...

Glad that Bandit was able to control himself and not made a mess in the house.   It was the longest we left him alone in the house, missing his usual daily routine.


Most pictures of Joe Louis Arena and the concert below:





















MacWoods Sand Dune Ride / Little Sable Pointe Lighthouse / Cherry Farm


At our lake. The kids love sitting on the deck and watching the water and fish below.


We found this Eastern Box Turtle right on the edge of the water.  


Went with the grandma to MacWoods Dune Rides.




Started the adventure at this bridge.  The ride is like a roller coaster with stops every now and then for our guid to tell us about the things we saw and about the dunes.







These are just the tops of the trees.


Lake Michigan.



After the dune ride, we decided to stop by the Little Sable Point Lighthouse since it is just about a mile away from MacWoods.











Our view from above the lighthouse.







On our way home, we stopped by  Cherry Point Farm in Shelby.  We saw the farm on our way to the dune ride and decided to stop by on our way back.




It was a great day with the grandma enjoying the dunes, the lighthouse and visiting a beautiful farm.
