Tonight we went trick or treating. At every house Blake said, “Trick or treat, smell my feet, if you don’t I’m going to pull down your underwear,” which is really close to the real rhyme. He also said “Thank you,” after every house and said, “Good night, don’t let the bed bite,” to almost everyone … Continue reading
Early Halloween morning we all got dressed and Captain America, Mission Commander Blake and the pigeon all headed through the back yard to school. We started our day with a fun parade through the school grounds. Next we went inside and each class paraded across the stage. After the kinders and pre-kinders, Blake led our … Continue reading
Here is my favourite little astronaut in the middle of painting a jack o lantern red, orange and black at the Links Halloween Party. That’s red paint on his left cheek and ketchup on his right. This afternoon Blake and I carved a jack o lantern. This is the first one of my adult life. … Continue reading
Sometime last summer Blake asked when his birthday party was. We explained that it was in January and that no, January was not soon, it was quite a long way away. He was kind of bummed so I suggested that we have a Halloween party. And then I forgot. Blake didn’t though, that kid forgets … Continue reading

We started getting ready for Halloween tonight. It’s Scott’s job to buy Halloween candy in Hong Kong. Who’s that peeping out behind the door? And we made lots and lots of ghosts.
The very first thing I heard this morning: Amy I had the most wonderful nightmare last night. It was very nice. Last thing: I hope tomorrow morning is Sunday night because then my daddy will be home. We miss you Scooter!
Here are a ton of pics from our day the SAS Centennial BBQ. It was super fun – six hours of fun. I just put Blake to bed and it took about 11 seconds for him to fall asleep. Further evidence that today was the best kind of day. A lot of time was spent … Continue reading
Did you know? That these days everything in our family is decided by eenie, meenie, miney, moe? Almost every single decision. Will Blake eat his carrots first or peas? Eenie meeie, miney, moe. Bath first or games? Eenie, meenie, miney, moe. Brush teeth or pee first? Eenie, meenie, miney, moe. And on it goes. I’m … Continue reading
I love my job and I (mostly) love going to work. I feel really blessed to be saying that because I know it’s not true for everyone. Sure, if we were millionaires, I might switch to part time teaching or something else, but for the most part, work makes me happy. Being a teacher isn’t … Continue reading
