POD: Breaking Away with the Puck


Today we have another picture from Violet’s 3 on 3 hockey. This time we have her taking the puck down the ice before she scored her first goal of the 3 on 3 season. She was so excited that he’d finally managed to get a puck through to the back of the net.

POD: Hula-Hooping for Canada


Today we celebrated 2 birthdays. Canada’s and Melissa’s. Though there was some wrinkles in our day, the kids had a great time at Mississauga Canada’s Festivities. What shocked me when I sat down to choose a picture of the day was how few pictures I took. Though I have to say I really love these three of Violet Hula Hooping.

POD: Last day of School


Today the kids headed off to their last day of school. They kids were both excited and sad to say good-by to another school year. Of course it was our last year with having a kindergartener, int the fall Violet will be in grade 1. Jacob will be in grade 4 and will probably have a teacher who will give him home work. Of course before any of that we have a long summer of fun and adventures.
