Day 107

 A full fun day!  House cleaning in the morning and in the afternoon we picked up some chocolate to make our first chocolate molds!  While they set we got to work putting together our little tent for poetry and tea time.  We had hot chocolate and munched on some of our little chocolates.  After supper we were off to the Montague Church of Christ for the Colours for Cancer auction.  Daddy ended up buying all the kids' paintings although there were other bids on their work.  Emma-Lyn's piece in particular seemed a hot ticket item!  Then I was off for a girl's night.  Nothing like chatting and laughing into the wee hours of the morning!

Day 106

A bit of a different day.  Started it off with cutting Levi's hair.  He seems so much more like my little boy than my little baby anymore...sniff.  Still cute as a button though! 

I enjoyed my second step dance class and it looks like we may even participate in a recital in the summer!  How crazy is that??  We've learned 8 steps so far and we're having a lot of fun too!

Day 105

We made a trip over to the library this evening and it would seem someone thought he was small enough to fit in the doll house...

Day 104

Kind of a different day - mostly due to the fact I didn't sleep much the night before.  My brain was completely awake and totally not interested in shutting down at all.  This morning we were supposed to meet with our homeschool group to go on a trail walk, however I couldn't imagine trying to keep up with the kids and actually make some sort of coherent small talk with the other moms at the same time.  We ended up going to the Bowman's for a playdate.  Yep, I could definetly do a playdate especially since it included some burger love.  Denise and I shared the El Rio which I've had before and we quite enjoyed it.

Day 103

It was a do your homeschool and have your lunch outside kinda day...finally.  Such a warm beautiful day!  It felt like spring may actually be here!  The kids spent most of the day outdoors which was delightful!  They are very anxious to get their bikes out and running too!

Our outdoor classroom.  The kids did their work with chalk on the driveway.  We also played a few rounds of hopscotch.

So nice to have our first picnic lunch on the deck!

Day 102

 Things that make me happy:

 Being able to see the top of my garden fence...haven't sen that since the end of January.

 Watching the kids play in the mud and float their boats in the little stream down our street.

 Watching these two cuties make pancakes for supper.

Day 101

 What an amazing day out there today.  The sun is shining and it's actually warm outside! The kids ran some errands this morning with Marko while I had some quiet time and finished my book.

This afternoon I took the kids to Colours for Cancer at the Montague Church of Christ.  This is the second year that the kids have participated and they had a great time! It was interesting to watch how their work transformed from one image to the next until their final product.  I think we made some people nervous with the amount of black the kids were using but they had a blast splatter painting fun bright colours on their black backdrop.  We're looking forward to the auction night next Friday.  100%  of the proceeds will be split between the QEH Pediatric Oncology & IWK's Hematology & Oncology Departments.

 Masterpieces in progress.

 A wise artist knows that he must be a part of his work!

 And the finished products:
 Emma-Lyn's is called "The Big Party"

 Nate's is called, "Black Crow."
And Sean went for, "The Mess"
