Welcome to Prarie Pi. This blog exists to journal and document the memories that our family experiences. Pi is "an amount of type that has been jumbled or thrown together at random." We hope to assemble in words and pictures the daily thoughts and activities that happen in our household. We do this to help those that are distant from us get a glimpse into our days so that the miles that separate us won't keep us apart.

Buttercup made her very first batch of brownies without any help this week!

Summer Scootin’



045
There is nothing like having your best friend receive a new motor-bike scooter....
043
...and giving you a ride....
035
...but "Oh the joy" when your friend lets you ride it on your own!
040
It is just the perfect size motor bike!
042
And "Oh the joy" for the best friend letting his friend give his younger sister a ride!
Plenty of smiles to go around!
