And now today it was this girl's turn to finish Grade 6 with a trip to Fun Mountain.

Tuesday, June 27, 2017


This kid. Finished off her Grade 8 year with a day at Fun Mountain. And there goes the middle school years...

Holy stressful tournament! The girls won their first game of the day 3-2 in the most tense game of the season and then they faced their classmates in the gold medal match and missed out by a 1-0 loss. So proud of this kid! The weather was miserable with the wind and the rain but I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else!

A 1-0 win in the first game of the tournament is a great way to start but sheesh was it cold!

This girl right here. She's the reason why I am stepping out of my comfort zone to run soccer practices in Les' absence the last couple of weeks. Teenage girls (that aren't my own) intimidate me, so this is really not something I enjoy. But for my kid, I'll do it.

Monday, June 19, 2017


We went out for a belated Father's Day supper for Les tonight. With half-price wings and a coupon voucher, it was practically a free meal!

Saturday, June 17, 2017


Another walking picture...cause we do a lot of that these days!

Enjoying some of the very rare sunshine this week before the clouds and rain hit us once again.

My view at tonight's soccer game was a bit different than usual as I was on the coach's side. I helped out our substitute coach since he didn't really know any of the girls on our team. It was a fun experience, and even better was that we won 4-1 against an otherwise undefeated team this year! (Pardon my finger that got in the shot...)

Good thing I cashed these in today, otherwise they would've expired! Thanks for the rare hugs, Joelle!

Tuesday, June 13, 2017


I had to run soccer practice tonight in Les' place. Not my scene, but it had to be done.

Monday, June 12, 2017


Evening walks in summer are my favorite. Now I just wish the teenager would join us.

Sunday, June 11, 2017


My hair is finally starting to get to the length where I can do fun things in it again!

Saturday, June 10, 2017


Today I got to spend a couple of hours at the fair with these two sweeties!

Friday, June 9, 2017


Oh annual town were rainy and cold, but for some reason we spent time together anyway. (Can you find Malia?)

Thursday, June 8, 2017


I took the day off today to watch this kid in her tri-school track meet. She tied for second place overall in the 200m and her relay team won first place! To see and hear me jump and scream, you would've thought I was cheering her on for an Olympic gold medal! To finish the day, she played a soccer game too...although she didn't play for nearly as much of the game as usual given her condition!

Wednesday, June 7, 2017


My damaged section of hair is ever so slowly starting to grow back.

Tuesday, June 6, 2017


It's been so special having different friends come and support Malia at her soccer games!

It was the perfect hot summer afternoon for a swim in our neighbours new pool!

Today we had our first scorching hot day of the summer. I think it got up to 35C or something ridiculous like that. With that came our first severe thunderstorm watch as well. Nothing much came of it (yet) but it was a sure sign of summer!

Wednesday, May 31, 2017


We found a good deal on a used trumpet for Malia for the fall and she couldn't resist playing it right away! Jack was quite intrigued by it.

Tuesday, May 30, 2017


Two thumbs up for a great win on the field tonight!

Monday, May 29, 2017


I started a free 34 day trial on this new budgeting program today (You Need A Budget). Hopefully this will help keep us a bit more on track with our spending...and also keep me from falling so far behind with our bookkeeping!

Water balloon fight today (with my new crocheted water balloons)!

Friday, May 26, 2017


Oh Jack...waiting for Malia to drop him bits of food while she gets her lunch ready.

Thursday, May 25, 2017


It's so sad that after only 4 games, we are already halfway through the soccer season. It's far too short!

Wednesday, May 24, 2017


Ground breaking news here today! Joelle went to a friend's house and got a make over which included JEANS! This kid hasn't worn jeans in YEARS. They looked great on her and she even wore them all evening at youth group.

Tuesday, May 23, 2017


Malia was thrilled to have little Nova (and her parents) come out to her soccer game tonight and cheer her on for a win!

Monday, May 22, 2017


We took the kids mini golfing on this long weekend Monday. No action shots of the game, but I did get this one of Malia in between holes.

Sunday, May 21, 2017


I'm kinda sorta really glad I took the plunge with these red glasses.

Malia's teacher sent me this picture this afternoon. They dissected starfish today! Glad it wasn't me...

Thursday, May 18, 2017


A well fought game tonight even though we lost 3-1. It was a beautiful evening for soccer.

Wednesday, May 17, 2017


Took the fam-jam to see Need to Breathe tonight. SO good! Even though the lead singer was under the weather and almost lost his voice by the end.

Half price wing night at Montana's for date night? Yes please!

Saturday, May 13, 2017


Getting ready to head to a BBQ with friends!

Friday, May 12, 2017


I finally took about 2 minutes before work this morning to put colour on my toes. Makes such a big difference!

Thursday, May 11, 2017


Tonight was Malia's grade 6 spring musical. They did a jukebox time machine musical where they traveled to different decades and then sang songs that were from each time period. It was very well done!

The Darth Vader mask is coming along! Another half hour and the hat should be all assembled and I'll finally be free of it!
