we did it

Last day of school! And that's what I said to the kids when we pulled into the driveway after picking Joe up at the end of the day: we did it. All those drives back and forth, all the strictly scheduled naps that were usually interrupted, all those car seat buckles... we did it. It may not sound like rough written out like that, but living through it, these school days were a lot for these little bodies. So coming to an end for couple months was really joyful. So we did it. And I'm glad.

Hello, Summer. We're so happy to see you.

this is how you do it

grad 2015

This is Henry's grad song... it's running through my head so now I shall share it with you... you will have to come up with your own tune, unless you want me to sing it to you.

we're moving up... to kindergarten
we're moving up... to kindergarten
we're departing
and soon we're starting

Isn't that a clever trick, to make "starting" rhyme with "kindergarten"? Love it.

So off we go, to Senior Kindergarten in the fall. Okay, not "we". I don't think they will let me in.

day o' dad

Happy Father's Day! Today we celebrated Daddy with breakfast in bed... here's where the kids tell David what's in the presents before he opens them...

and here is where we go to the Museum of Steam and Technology, where we enjoyed train rides, rockets, chalk, and lots of fun engineering information (some enjoyed this more than others - ahem - David).

And here is where David says he had a great day. The kids (and me, too) loved celebrating him.

backyard clara

Clara likes to explore the great outdoors (ie. eat grass). And while she slowly, slowly makes her way across the yard, the others ransack stuff.

fr. greg is in the house

Here he is... fresh off his ordination, Fr. Greg came to bless us with his priestly presence. We were glad to catch up and find out what life is like two weeks into his vocation (and the answer: good. He is so content, and confidently and faithfully stepping into his responsibilities. What an honour to see.)

We're going to hit up a Mass that he will be celebrating in Guelph. We will be the people in the pews with the foam fingers, cheering him on.
