Twinsies

Blake and Haohan wore the same shirt the other day and I felt compelled to document the experience. Actually, I think the boys found me and said, “You’ve got to get a picture of this!!”pot - 3
Neil jumped in with some matching green as well.pot - 4n

FIRST DAY OF GRADE 3!!

The first day of school was soooooo hot. In fact the first two weeks of school (that’s how late this post it) have been sooooooo hot. When my camera goes from a cold house to the hot air, pictures look like this:

But I’m happy I have this pic of my two favourite guys getting ready for their big day. Blake as a 3rd grader. Scott as a brand new AD!

Blake is in 3TS, with Tyson Spraul as a teacher. He helps the kids pronounce his name by telling them it rhymes with owl. ┬áBlake has some lovely kids in his class from years past… Zoe, Luca, James, Charlotte, Haohan, Frank and lots more. He and Lucas have been in the same class 5 years in a row!!!pot - 1 pot - 2Blake has a lot of new teachers in his support crew this year. New to him.

Music: Adam Chapa

PE: Avril Chow

Counseling: Mr Wolf (repeat from Gr 2)

It’s going to be a great year!

Summer ’16 Back to the Barn

We have been visiting Blake’s cousins at the barn every summer for years and years. I have so many sweet pictures of little Blake on a small pony named Little Bear. For the last two years he has been on a larger pony named Princess. He loves it and looks forward to it all year. This year Kathy and Gillie took us. SO FUN!

Gillie and Blake kindly co-ordinated their outfits for me.

pot - 7 pot - 8 Kathy brought one of her GORGEOUS puppies. They are so cute I can’t stand it. The barn goat was very curious about that pup. Scott had to do some protecting.pot - 9 pot - 10 pot - 11 pot - 12 pot - 13 pot - 14 Blake’s Calgary family sent him a legit cowboy hat for a cool present. I took the helmet off and slid on the hat for a few quick pics.pot - 15

One of the best parts of our summer is spending time with cousins. We reenacted this photo taken in 2011. Everybody’s even more gorgeous than they were 4 years ago. We are so lucky to have these amazing cousins in our life!

Summer ’16 THE POOL!!!!

We are incredibly lucky to live 3 doors down from Grandma and Grandpa for so many reasons, not the least of which is their pool. Many happy hours were spent in here, jumping, diving, splashing, playing and just plain cooling off. Lucky, lucky us.sum 16 - 51 sum 16 - 52 sum 16 - 53 sum 16 - 54

Summer ’16 Grand Bend #2

The kids had such a blast on our first visit that we squeezed in another beach day in Grand Bend. Swimming, playing in the sand and cruising the slightly dodgy main street made for a lovely day at the Bend.sum 16 - 45 sum 16 - 46 sum 16 - 47 sum 16 - 48 sum 16 - 49 sum 16 - 50

Summer ’16 Boler Mountain

FINALLY! We made it into the trees. We all had Boler Mountain on our bucket list this summer, yet somehow we didn’t make it there until our last week of summer. We were late getting there, but we more than made up for it when we got there. Scott jumped on to the Beginner, Intermediate and zip line course. Erin and Blake whipped around the junior course twice. Big smiles all around!sum 16 - 9 sum 16 - 10 sum 16 - 11 sum 16 - 12 sum 16 - 13 sum 16 - 14 sum 16 - 15 sum 16 - 16 Version 2 sum 16 - 18 sum 16 - 19 sum 16 - 20 sum 16 - 21 sum 16 - 22 sum 16 - 23 sum 16 - 24 sum 16 - 25 sum 16 - 26 sum 16 - 27 sum 16 - 28 sum 16 - 29 sum 16 - 30 sum 16 - 31 sum 16 - 32 sum 16 - 33 sum 16 - 34 sum 16 - 35 sum 16 - 36 sum 16 - 37 sum 16 - 38 sum 16 - 39 sum 16 - 40 sum 16 - 41 sum 16 - 42 sum 16 - 43 sum 16 - 44

Summer ’16 Wonderland Visit #3

We visited Canada’s Wonderland 3 times this summer. It was amazing each and every time. On our last trip we went with our wonderful amigos Erin, Barb & Rich.

Blake is getting braver and braver and I think we have finally left the swan ride behind us and moved on towards bigger (and better) thrills.
