Don't worry. It's not Percy.
As part of our Ancient Egypt studies, we checked out an 'Egyptian craft book' from the library. Alex flipped through it and decided that she wanted to create a mummified cat. So that's what we did.

It's Alex's second riding lesson (they have 1 - 2 every month at this age). She was so excited to go see Racer again.

On the way back down to Minneapolis, we stopped at another of our favorite spots- Lutsen Resort beach. (See "Poohsticks Bridge" in the background). It had really gotten chilly, but we still spent some time playing by the waterside.

This morning we decided to show Gramps and Goldie (dog) our favorite trail. Justin was totally in charge this time, and did a wonderful job leading our group.

The cabin we were in was beautiful!! The best part about the Gunflint Lodge (in my book) is that they are dog-friendly.

Today was a Mama-Justin day. Alex stayed back in the cabin and learned how to play cribbage (math lesson for the week...;-) while Justin, Kolachi and I had some adventures.
First up was a hike. I had K on a canicross lead, and she was really starting to respond to my directional commands. As long as her boy was way out in front of her. She did NOT like not being able to keep an eye on him when he would fall back and walk behind me.
Just checking in with her boy...
Later on that day Justin got to go fishing off of the dock. No fish caught today, but there's always tomorrow!

Day 2 consisted of a Nature Tracking hike, led by the same young gentleman that we enjoyed learning from in the spring. It ended up being his next to last hike of the season-- so we were able to bookend his summer employment experience!
