Sophia finally broke out the pogo stick (a Christmas gift!).
And I'm pretty sure our neighbour Noah is to blame for all the rain/flooding we've been getting lately.

It was neat to see some old faces at my piano teacher, Mrs. Wiebe's retirement party.

Thankfully the weather held out long enough for the kids to get a couple hours of swimming in when we had two families over for supper tonight.

Last day of school for the girls, and one last playdate with all the boys before one of Jacob's best buds moves to Alabama.

Today all the girls in Emma's class were invited to come swim in the afternoon - I guess it's not called playing hooky if the teacher ok'd it.  And it was Jacob's last day of Kindergarten!

Mmmmmm watermelon - one of my favourite summer fruits!  Along with strawberries, and raspberries.

Today all the kindergarteners from Jacob's Sunday School class received Bibles at the church picnic, and Sophia's team won the Pepsi Cup hockey tournament!

This weekend Nathan, Emma, & Sophia went to Grand Forks for Sophia's MB Mustangs hockey tournament. I had to stay behind to play piano for Sylvie's violin exam, Jacob had a birthday party to go to, and Olivia wanted to be with me.

Today I volunteered in Jacob's class in the morning and then enjoyed the volunteer appreciation lunch in the library.

Science fair winner!  In large part due to the judge interview I'm sure.

Thankful this guy learned to swing by himself - pump those legs!

It's been a bit chilly for swimming - but apparently not for this guy!

Jacob loved the kitten at the local garden centre today.  Olivia and the Glee Club performed well, as did Emma in her band concert, and performing "Happy" and "Frozen".

Inspired by my sister Andrea's post, I made myself a homemade breakfast sandwich - beat some eggs and fried them omelette style, fried some leftover farmer sausage, and voila!  It was delicious!


He can't actually hit a bird with that thing, can he?

The birthday party continues - Sky Zone, lunch and ice cream at the mall food court, "Maleficent", and back home for presents.

Birthday cupcakes for Olivia!  Couldn't deliver them on her birthday due to the field trip, so the day after it is!

Tuesday, June 3, 2014


A field trip on your birthday sounds fun to me, the birthday girl got her ears pierced, and Sophia had tweet night - she's debating between flute and trumpet.

Sophia won 2nd place in the 100m and 3rd place in the 200m at divisional track and field today! There was a chance for another one for the relay, but it got cancelled due to rain.
