First Day of School

On the first day of school the kids were super organized! They had their bags packed and ready to go first thing in the morning...

 ...however, there were a few glitches for mom and dad. The coffee was the biggest disaster of the morning, but...

 ...putting the knife into the holder the wrong way was also no fun.

Like all parents, we start every school year with "First Day of School Photos". I love comparing the first day of school and the last day of school photos at the end of the year!

Lauchy seems a little apprehensive!

We walked with a large group of friends, 
which I think helped to ease some nerves.

I like to leave a note and treat for the kids on their first day.

While the kids were at school I was getting ready to paint Heather's old room, which is now our new office.

I will post photos of the finished result 
another time, but the new colour is much lighter!

The Pinery Days 3 and 4

It looks like Heather and her friend are holding hands, but they are not. 

We saw this baby turtle crossing the 
road, right at the "Caution - Turtles Crossing" sign.

Our destination for the day - ice cream shop!

We love playing at the beach. There is always so much to do!

The kids are running like maniacs down the dunes!

Dessert was fun tonight!

While Jeff and I packed up 
the site, the kids were drawing on rocks.

We hid "love rocks" around the 
camp site for the next people to discover.

It was another great time at The Pinery!

The Pinery Days 1 and 2

Our friends booked two sites at The Pinery, one of our favourite camp sites, and invited us to join them! Yay! It was so much fun and we were glad to be included!

The first two days we were there the waves were huge. 
The kids loved playing in them!

Our friend put a cracker on his 
head and the seagull had no fear!

We saw this stick bug on the wheel 
of the van. Good camouflage (not)! 

Our sites were right on the dunes and 
the kids spent hours exploring and playing on them.

I love the stitching in this web.

I thought this was funny - 
it looks like Lauchy is eating Heather's hat.

Cuddles at the fire.
