POD: Hitting 1000


Tonight I continued my November routine of heading to Starbucks with Jacob to do some writing. I haven’t managed to find my novel writing groove, but it’s been fun trying. Tonight I don’t want to write about my struggles, I want to write about Jacobs success. My little man hit 1000 words tonight. His writing has mostly been limited to our coffee shop writing sessions, so that he’s managed to write that much is very impressive. He still hopes to hit 2000, but with only 4 days left in November it will take a lot of work.

POD: Diving in


Today’s picture of the day comes from the pool deck. At the kids swimming class today I captured this picture of Jacob getting ready to dive into the pool.

POD: Hockey Instruction


Early Sunday mornings is usually Hockey Practice for our little family.  Today it was Violet’s turn,  early in the practice I capture this image of the kids kneeling on the ice listening to the coach.  Violet is there on the right in her number 5 jersey,  trying to stay on one knee like the rest of the kids.

POD: Hockey Star


Today we have some pictures from Violets Hockey game. It’s amazing to watch my little girl on the ice, she improves so much every game. It wont be long till we are celebrating her first goal.

POD: Violet and her Little Friend


This morning as we headed off to school we were greeted by Violet’s little ‘Snow Bear’. I wanted to take a picture for today’s picture of the day, so she posed with her creation. As much as she insists that it is a snow bear the rest of the household thinks it looks more like a snow Angry Bird. either way it’s cute and I’m impressed with the ingenuity she showed picking the pieces for its Eyes, nose, mouth and even arms.

POD: The snow is calling


This morning all Violet wanted to do was get back outside into the snow.  We told her no snow Angels before school,  or instead she got out the shovel and went to work.

POD: First Snow Angels of the Season


Today we had a bit of a snow storm, of course the kids wanted get out there and play in the snow. I captured this picture of Violet as she made snow angels.

POD: Santa Clause Parade 2014


Today was the Toronto Santa Clause Parade. It was a great day for the kids. The weather wasn’t to cold and the flurries all day gave it a Christmas feel. I’ll post more picture soon.

POD: Sleepover bound


With Jacob’s Hockey game on Sunday this week, it left Jacob free to have  a sleep over at his best friends house. I snapped today’s picture of the day while we walked to his friends house

POD: Dinner with my Boy

DinnerwithJacobTonight it was just Jacob and I for dinner and after a second day of helping family move, I didn’t feel like cooking anything. So I asked Jacob where he wanted to go for dinner, he chose Subway Subs. I captured dinner while he in joyed his Cold Cut Combo with Bacon.  It was nice sitting with just Jacob, talking about different things. He does seem excited about his novel, I think I’ll have to try to schedule another Starbucks trip for the 2 of us.
