Day 143

Cause sometimes it's nice to find a little treat for me...
I love anything hazelnut flavoured and even better it's decaf so I won't be up all night thinking about everything!

Day 142

What a fun day.  We started out by getting our house cleaning done.  There were some rough spots but we got through them and then I told the kids to eat their lunch quickly because I had a surprise for them.  They were so excited and they guessed and guessed but I wouldn't tell them.  We ended up in Charlottetown at the McDonalds for a birthday party.  They were thrilled!  The kids loved hanging out with their friends and enjoying some birthday cupcakes too.  I enjoyed hanging out with friends I don't get to see as often as I like and I made a new friend.  Love getting to know new people, helps to have a cute toddler that helps himself to other people's food! I was embarrassed but the other mom was fantastic and we hit it off.  While we were there I gave each of the kiddos a dollar and Nate spent his on one of the games while the other two saved theirs to buy something at the dollarstore.  Emma-Lyn picked out a cute little Winnie the Pooh diary and Sean found a neat mini bowling game.

Such a lovely day!

Day 141

So nice to have another gorgeous day to enjoy. We did our school stuff outside and had lunch on the deck and the kids jumped themselves silly on the trampoline.  And I took some time to just admire new growth around our yard.

Day 140

It was a great get things done kinda day.  I got through the mountains of laundry and the kids got their stuff put away and I even  managed to sort Levi's clothes.  We got through our school stuff and Sean enjoyed trying out his volcano experiment. We got a loaf of bread made and had yummy sandwiches for lunch.  In the afternoon we worked together on the garden.  We spread out the newspaper and piled compost and soil on top. Then it was back inside for some much deserved chocolate milkshakes. Everyone practiced their piano pieces and played a game on the Wii.  It was left overs for supper which made things easy for me and once dinner chores were done, the kids played on the trampoline until it was time to come in.

 This might have been more impressive if we actually had red food colouring to put in it.

The nice thing is, we can redo most of the experiments again and again!

Day 139

Today we enjoyed a session on service dogs with our homeschool group.  The kids enjoyed the short presentation and getting to meet the dog.  Afterwards we headed down to the waterfront to enjoy some outdoor play and more socializing. 

We had piano lessons and a fun playdate in the afternoon.  The kids jumped on the trampoline, played Lego in the living room and ran about while the moms got to relax and chat on the deck.  And just before everyone packed up to go home, Sean pulled out on his science experiments and the kids worked together to make a fruit battery.  They were pretty thrilled to get it to work.

Day 138

Happy Victoria Day!  We enjoyed a lovely time at Jennie and Troy's with their family.  The kids crafted, played Bocce ball and performed gymnastic feats.  And we all stuffed ourselves silly with yummy food! 

In the evening we enjoyed a visit with Grammie Peric.  The kids were very delighted to see her again after her time away in Ottawa.

Day 137

 Not quite as sun shiny and warm as yesterday but still a really nice day.  We went to church this morning and after lunch Emma-Lyn and I went on our date to Gillis's Drive In and we may have indulged in WAY TOO MANY onion rings! Marko played soccer with Sean and we all trucked over to Cardigan to play at the park.  We watched some How It's Made before bed time and now the kiddos are in bed and Marko is off to games night again...The man loves to play Risk! And I have a book and some iced tea that are calling my name.

 Climbing the ropes.

 And we even played on the teeter totter too!

My sweet sunshine girl!
