Henry's moving on. Kindergarten - check. Grade 1 - on his way. Henry is finishing up his year and has learned "how to spell and make friends." With that gold, how can his future go wrong?

Below are Henry's favourites... Mrs. Atkinson, who is retiring despite our protests, Mrs. Pallotta, who is so attentive, and Mr. Jose, who Henry thinks is awesome. 

Next year, Henry's on his way to St. Mary's for the French Immersion program. This means (ANGEL CHORUS) both boys are going to the same school! Drop-off and pick up at only one school! One school! So excited. We'll still always be running late but still so excited.

these people

So happy to have these good people at our house today! Thank you, Naglieris, for coming to visit (and hi to your extended family... who read all this... hi Emily... these pictures are for you!).

Anywho, please come visit often. New Haven is too far away.

babies and balloons

Should you ever be having a bad day... hand a baby a balloon. It's delightful.

Post-balloon photo shoot...

This is where she likes to perch, tuck in, and fall asleep. I like it very much.

joe is nice

Joe (and parents) was very happy/proud/honoured today when he was awarded the Caring Family Member medal for grade two students. As parents... we know that he's not always caring, and that being a big brother can be hard. But we're also glad to know he's trying and it means a lot that his teachers recognize that. We see it, too. We love you, Joe.

gymnastics face

This is how Annie looks at her gymnastics class:

Happy. Like her-face-is-going-to-explode happy. It's so fun to watch her every week and, especially, today when The Little Gym held a show to display the amazing talents of their budding gymnasts. Here's what she can do... (mostly stand with her arms in the air... but also some other things...).

Happy Father's Day to our daddy! We love you and thank you for all all all you do for us.

And we also enjoyed looking for frogs. Good way to spend the day.
