School is out!


SCHOOL IS OUT!! The kids had there official last day of school on friday. Aidan had his field trip out to a farm north of the city and I was able to tag along. We had a fun day, even with big rain clouds looming over our heads. We managed to stay dry and it poured as soon as we left.

If you know Aidan, you know his love for farms and animals. He was very excited about everything here and he had so much to talk about when he got home. Here is just a few pictures I took.









Tomorow we are off to the cabin for the week, and then camping for a week. It will be a nice little vacation! More pictures will come!

Soccer highlights

We spent this beautiful hot weekend at TWO soccer tournaments. The kids both did excellent considering the high temperatures and they both got medals which they are very proud of! Here are a few shots from the day. Cassidy has surprised me with her soccer abilities! She loves it, and Aidan has become an allstar of the team again.

I was excited to try out my new lens on my camera!




Poor Liam, sitting on the sidelines!
My blog needs a new fresh facelift. I am hopeing to do that on holidays, as well as update my business site as well!

Again.....I am so behind in posting, as well as going through pictures. This afternoon, Liam had his preschool graduation party. The first picture is Liam with his two teachers. Liam loves his teachers.....he even wrote a song about them. Ask him to sing it sometime, it is rather catch and I often join in!
Liam has grown so much in preschool. His social skills have improved and for some reason, Liam seems to gravitate towards girls. He has developed a few girlfriends which is pretty adorable. He has one more year of preschool before he will go to kindergarten.




Cassidy came along too since it was a non school friday for her. Cassidy has come along way as well. She is writing, reading, and so eager to learn more and more. She amazes me with her abilities and she is very excited for grade one.




I am so excited that we are halfway through June. I am taking two weeks off in July and will be camping, cottaging, and just relaxing! I am so excited as life has been so hectic and busy.

Catch up post - Liam's field trip

I haven't yet blogged about Liam's first field trip that I went along with last week. It was a beautiful day and we headed out to a farm outside of the city.
Liam was SO excited about riding the big yellow bus!
I took way to many pictures there, honestly haven't gone through all of them and just grabbed a few to show you.
He got to do everything from milking a cow, petting zoo and a hay ride. The highlight for him was seeing the little baby kittens.
I will get to more pictures soon.........and maybe some with animals!

Just a few things to quickly blog pictures, but when I find the time I will blog some pictures from camping, Liam's field trip and soccer.
Saturday was my first official paid full wedding. What hard work it was but I honestly didn't think I would love it as much as I did. It was so much fun and although I was exhausted at the end, it was worth it.
Check out my photo blog for some pics of that. I filled 35 GB of memory, that was with me shooting, Steve shooting and all the pictures in raw (which suck up way more memory then jpeg)
On another note, when i got home from the wedding I learned that dear friends of ours lost there dad on saturday. Jared and Dana are in our small group and Jared's dad has been fighting cancer since fall. Please keep the family in your prayers. Although they have been anticipating this, it is still such a shock now that it has happened. We praise God knowing he is no longer suffereing and tumor free in Heaven. What a peaceful picture that brings. You can visit there site here to express your condolences.

There's a peace I've come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There's an anchor for my soul
I can say "It is well"
Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead
And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise
There's a day that's drawing near
When this darkness breaks to light
And the shadows disappear
And my faith shall be my eyes
Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead
And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise
