Today began with breakfast with friends and then it moved onto a cool birthday party. We just got home when some neighbours knocked on the door begging us to bring out the slip and slide. No problem!

One of my sweet students turned 7 this weekend and he kindly invited us to the party. It was at Adventure Zone and Blake was excited to go back! Blake has been working hard to master the rope swing at the Adventure Zone and today he finally figured it out. Just to make sure, he … Continue reading

Blake’s wish: I wish I can clap my hands all night. lighting the fire everybody helping as it fills with hot … Continue reading
