I am coming to you this morning from our campsite at Sandbanks Provincial Park (well I did write this before we left, but you know what I mean). Come back next week to see all of our adventures.
Yesterday was the last day of school. Check out how E has grown over the year. He did so well with his reading this year, we are proud of him, and we are ready for Grade 3!
E wrote out some lovely cards to his teachers this week - his classroom teacher, the YMCA leaders, and his music, drama/dance, and gym teachers. He had so much fun with them and wanted to tell them the specific game that he liked in each class. We may struggle with reading and writing sometimes, but he does not lack in the kindness and thoughtfulness department.
And keeping with E, he got a new bike this week. His other bike was too small and since we knew we were taking our bikes camping, we wanted to get a new one for him now. Pro tip, when you switch your kid to a bigger bike, remind them that they only have hand brakes, not the backwards pedal brake!
The parking lot down the street is under construction so one day before school we had to walk down there and check it out.
I don't sit out here as much as I'd like to, but I did get this picture of our flowers in the backyard while I briefly sipped my coffee before having to go after Q who was wanting to check out the trucks (see above).
Happy Canada Day weekend! I hope you've got some sort of patriotic activity planned which for me means enjoying the great outdoors and listening to Wheat Kings by the Tragically Hip.
