Hallowe'en 2013

Happy Hallowe'en, everyone! We had many opportunities to dress up this year, starting at the Manitoba Museum last Friday night (along with 1600 other members of the museum...), continuing at Brownies, and then on the 31st for school parties and the big event. Much excitement, fun, mild weather, and LOTS of treats were had by Baby Ninja Hamster, Super Wiener Dog, and Stealth Puppy.

Last Day of Grade One

Here are the two finishers of Grade One. 

Monday, May 20, 2013


We saw the forecast for a rainy long weekend and decided to make a run for the Interlake on Thursday afternoon while the sun was still shining. The garter snakes were fantastic and active and we even managed a (very cold) swim at the lake on the way back. A beautiful, slithery, shivery day.

Assiniboine River Skate

We went out early yesterday morning for a river skate - and we were the only ones out there!

We started out by ignoring the "Access Point: CLOSED" signs and sending the lightest among us out onto the iffy shore ice first, down behind the legislative building. Got our skates on in the "Woolhaus" and then skated down to "Hygge House" to blast our eyeballs with fluorescent yellow everything. It was a great, frosty morning, the ice was great and we all loved it. Until Greg's foot broke through the ice on the way home. Soaker!

A Bit of a Headache

Poor Greg was not feeling great the other day. Just a bit of a headache, so he took to bed with the laptop and some emails that needed to be dealt with. And then along came the "Head Warmer Uppers" who had decided that they would boil away Greg's headache with blankets, pillows, and bathrobes. And it worked!


Who knew the difficulties involved in photographing four things that aren't there? Smile, already, you two!

Grade One

We had a couple of extremely excited young ladies on the porch this morning, ready to tackle a full day of school including lunch. Mostly ready. Fiona was a bit nervous, but she perked up considerably when she saw her new teacher wearing high heelers. Henry keeps mentioning how quiet everything seems, and asking if it is time to go and get the girls yet.

Wouldn't it be great if there were an F and an S hiding under Ruby's backpack straps on that shirt?
