POD: Lacrosse Sunday

Not even the sudden thunderstorm washing out her second game could put a damper on Miss V today. Her team won 5-2 and the teams Lacrosse bags came in. She

POD: Victoria day Fireworks

Today was Victoria day so the neighborhood was alive with fireworks.

POD: Relaxing in the Grass

Today we have a picture of Ruby take a break from playing catch. She had a lovely time enjoying the summer-like weather in the sun.

POD: Taking a shot

Tonight I thought I’d share this animated gif of Violet taking a shot during tonight’s practice.

POD: Celebrating

Tonight we have a picture of Violet’s hockey team celebrating their second win in a row. A strong 5-2 win over a team that beat them 6-3 last time they played. It’s been amazing to watch how much better all the girls are getting. I guess the endless trips to the  rink are paying off.

POD: Hanging with Santa

To the kids saw the big man himself. Mr Claus. It was a magical visit, and every year I wonder when the magic will end.

POD: The Return of Jingles

Today we I continue with the Christmas theme. Today Jingles returns, well technically tomorrow. Still, it seems like the right thing to share for today’s picture of the day. Violet’s been asking about our Elf on the Shelf since she woke up on December first. She even asked her friends Elf if they could ask Jingles to return to us.

POD: Advent fun.

It’s December, Christmas is 25 days away (Well really 24 days). So that means out comes the kid’s Advent calendars. Instead of chocolate, we’ve got them a Lego and Playmobil calendars.

POD: November Reading Scrapbook

Today we wrap up November, and with it, Jacob has to hand in his Reading Scrapbook. Of course, he wasn’t finished his scrapbook till after 10 o’clock last night. I think managing his time will be something we’ll work on for next month project. Still I think he did a very good job.

POD: Mini-Pokémon

This morning on the way to work, I found these three little guys in the cup holder of the van. I’m pretty sure they are Jacob’s, what I’m not sure of is why they were in the cup holder. Still, I have to say, I really like how my S8 captured them.

 

POD: Breakfast Creations

Breakfast is not always an easy time in our house. Everyone running around getting things ready for the day. One of the challenges has been finding something everyone would eat. Recently that’s been Pancakes. Usually, Chocolate chip Pancakes, though I have been known to make a Sprinkle Pancake or two. After weeks of making Pancakes day after day I started experimenting with different shapes and designs. So far, I haven’t really mastered it, but today I managed to make one that I think looks like BB8. What do you think?

POD: Breaking Away


Another weekend of hockey is behind us. It was a pretty good weekend, after losing 4-2 on Saturday, they managed to tie the same team 2-2 on Sunday.  It was a close game, with Orangeville taking a 2 -1 lead over the Dolphins with just over 2 minutes left in the game. It took pulling the goalie, but with just over a minute left Violet put in the tieing goal. It was a great game. Today’s picture is from late in the game, Violet is carrying the puck in for what should have been a great scoring chance. Unfortunately, she was pulled down by two skaters from the other team before she could get a shot or a pass off.

POD: Water Fight

Today was the end of the Lacrosse House league season, so it was Water-fight night.
