Let The Summer Begin!

Now that the incredibly late strawberry season has arrived, summer can officially begin! We were down to our last bag of frozen strawberries in the freezer, so it came not a moment too soon. As soon as we got these home, Kaitlyn and I each had a big bowl of them - with many more bowl-fulls to come! Mmm mmm good!

Passionate About Panago

Do you think Rachael loves her Panago pizza a little bit? She had to write this note to Daddy to save her a piece of pizza to take to school on Monday for lunch (the last Monday! Yikes!)

Sports Day

It was another chilly Sports Day this year, but at least the rain mostly stayed away. A few little drops, but nothing major. This year they divided the school in to different "provinces" or "territories". They went to the classroom they were in on the first day of school - k-5 in the same class, and these were the teams. Rachael stayed with her regular teacher in the "Yukon" team. I don't think they won, but they had fun.
There were sac races, even though the bottom of this sac had a hole in it, being dragged across the field on a tarp, carry everything from one hoola-hoop to another while blindfolded, and of course, freezies. They even let Kaitlyn have one. And all the while Kaitlyn just watched and entertained herself, playing in the sand, or pushing herself on a swing. Though, she's very much looking forward to being able to join in the fun next year!

Cousin Jonathan

The girls have a new cousin - Jonathan Brian David! Brian and Andree had a baby boy on June 12, at 3pm.
Jonathan weighed 8 lbs when he was born. He's got quite a head of hair under that cute little cap!
Rachael and Daddy played hookey on Friday so we could all go see him. We brought him this balloon, but he's so bundled up you can't even see him! Auntie Sharon wanted to hold him, but the girls didn't. They will yet. Welcome, little Jonathan! It's kind of funny, but if our girls would have been boys, they would have been named Jonathan! It's a good name!
