...I have this HUGE crush on a fellow!!  

Turns out he's a friend of a friend.....

Small ;)  

Our Friday!!!

Our day started off with a homeschool park day at Castledowns Splashpark!  It was fun to see everyone and get caught up after everyones busy Summer!!  I got to give Trish the gift I found for her in Wayne. A flamingo tape dispenser!! :)  

I missed this magical moment but luckily it was caught on camera!!  Lorraine and Alora on the little spinny thing at the playground:  Crazy peeps ;p 

Abigail and sam wanted ice cream after the park day - but there was a long line up at the ice cream truck because of daycares, so I suggested we drive out to Katies Crossing instead!  It always makes having ice cream much more of a treat!  We got there just as a train was going over the bridge!  Perfect timing :)  We were the only people there the whole time!!

After Katies Crossing we headed in to town to the library.  The children played the Summer reading game again and FINISHED!!!  Yay!  With one day left!!!  So exciting!  They got to pick a brand new book each and also write their names on picnic baskets to stick on the 'wall of winners' :)

They also got to finally look into the picnic basket on the game board and see who was hiding there!  Can you see who it is???  :)

While we were at the library we popped into the Agora (big community room) to look through the library book sale.  Sooooo many bargains - I had to get the children to put some back because they were getting carried away and if we are moving house we need to DOWNSIZE lol!!

We all got some books though and soooo cheap - and I find it very hard to say no to them where books are concerned!!  

We ran in to Walmart for some groceries (love having two Supercentres in SP now) and then headed home to make supper.  We decided it was such a gorgeous day that we would barbecue and have supper out on the deck.  We had chicken souvlaki kebobs and burgers, with potatoes and asparagus (done in a moroccan seasoning).  Yum!!

The chicken was a BIG hit!!!

As were the vegetables:

Washed mine down with a yummy cold beer:

I spent the evening soaking in the bath.  Then watching a spelling dvd with Sam and reading him his new books.  

All in all another fabulous Summer day :)  

Thursday evening

Last night, Abby and Sam were with their dad, so Susannah and I headed to Whyte Ave to look for a bag for school.  We had supper at Naanolicious and wandered around the Fringe Festival:

I am going to see a couple of the plays next week :)
I will probably take the kids to the Fringe to watch some of the street performances tomorrow though :) 

When we got home, Sam watched one of the reading and spelling dvd's I had borrowed from the library for him.  It obviously interested him, because he then got his journal out and started writing a story!!  His spelling is improving sooooo much :)  


Yesterday was a fairly easy day for us - we headed in to town to the Registry office - Laurence made the appointment for his driving test.  We then dropped him off for work.  
We headed to the park for a couple of hours to enjoy the gorgeous weather!  I sat down by the water and enjoyed the quiet - and had a little duck come and keep me company :)  

I did some writing by the water too:

Then we headed to the library so the children could play the Summer reading game - it ends on Saturday, and we really wanted to finish the game and get the prizes!!  :)

They get to pick a shaker to use as their 'counter' and then throw the dice to move along.  Then depending on the square they land on, they either wait for their next turn on a  new day OR they get to pick a prize from the treasure box!!

They didn't finish the game yesterday - Abigail was ONE square away!!!
