Whipper Snapper

Mondays are the most popular day around here. That's the day our boys get to play with their cousins on PS4. Apparently they get to play games a whole lot more than our boys do. 

I was sitting on my bed trying to fill out applications. That's my 24/7 job, that isn't really a job that makes money now a days. The boys were in the living room playing PS4, with their cousins. 

They talk so loud! Of course I can hear everything they're saying. Isaak called his cousin, "A young whipper snapper". He said it more than once. 

Later I asked Isaak where he got, "A young whipper snapper" from? He said that his other cousin calls him that. Apparently it's a thing they do while they play PS4. Goofs! I haven't heard that term, since my Grandpa said it, I think.

WW: 50th {Linky}

My parents just had their 50th wedding anniversary.

A day before they we thought we'd meet up in the afternoon. Then my aunts and cousins were going to drive by to tell them, "Happy Anniversary!" My sister called them to ask what they were going to do on their special day. They we going to go on an all day drive. So much for the drive by.

They knew my sister Angie was coming in the morning to give them a card. Me, my 2 sisters, their 3 son-in-laws, their 7 grandsons, 1 granddaughter, and 1 granddaughter on the way all came to visit, with signs. 

The first grader went up to ring their bell. My mom was a bit teary eyed. She hasn't seen us all together, since Christmas. 

It was hard to tell if we were smiling, or not. We all wore masks. Most of us hardly leave the house. Terra, my sister is very pregnant, and her son Emerson has a genetic condition called Trisomy 18. I have Asthma. We're home most of the time.

Here's Isaak with the 1st grader Edison. Isaak's really excited for the new baby Margaret to be born. Edison's don't think Isaak's all that anymore. Ha!

I thought the boys were doing cat's in the cradle. Nope Elijah the one that's Isaak's age (7th grade) was teaching Mica how to do a magic trick.

All the sudden swings and sidewalk chalk were cool. It's about the only things there were to do, for a few hours. 

I know my parents didn't get a big party. But I think they were happy with this.

Quench Your Thirst With #LinkitAdventure

Ever since the pandemic hit the U.S. I've been trying to up my intake of water, and lower my sweet tooth. There is less temptation at home. I don't have a candy bowl sitting right by the front door.

When I drink more water, I’m less hungry for snacks. I like the 10 color options for #LinkitAdventure + its vacuum sealed. Mica’s free to take this to high school next year. #sp

The Tale of Mica's Water Bottle:

I've gotten Mica, so many water bottles. It's not always his fault that they've been damaged, or missing. The first nice one I got him a boy in his class decided he was going to pick it up, and throw it at another student he was mad at. The boy was punished, but Mica's water bottle wasn't ok.

I got him another stylish water bottle, that he left in a class. He went back, and the water bottle was awol. 

After that they made a rule that no one could carry a water bottle. I'm assuming some were trying to sneak alcohol into school. Maybe I'm naive, but I could not see Mica drinking at all. He's such a rule follower, he won't even jaywalk.

Mica most certainly needs a water bottle. Even if he can't carry one in high school (a new school), he can have one for Quiz Bowl, Cross Country and Track.

Now he has a new one!

It’s essential to stay hydrated. Since the pandemic stated I’ve been trying to walk once or twice a day, and up my drinking. I drag Mica along. If anything he needs to start training for Cross Country. 

Vacuum Sealed: 

This water bottle is rated A+ because it's vacuum sealed. Water stays cold inside it. 

Bottoms Up:

This is the bottom. I do wish it was a bit more grip like. A full metal bottom makes it kind of slippery, and prone to fall over.

The Perfect Amount:

It holds a lot of water. 


They have 10 colors to choose from, which is more than most water bottles come in. We happened to get black to review. I like many of their colors.

  1. Black
  2. Frost 
  3. Lava
  4. Mint
  5. Orange
  6. Pink
  7. Rose
  8. Seafoam
  9. Stainless
  10. Violet 

What color would you choose?

Where to Get Link it Adventure Water Bottle:

You can get it on Amazon Prime for $15.99
