The Winter Wonderland I referred to...Shields SK

Blame Facebook....

Blame facebook for my complete neglect of all things blog. I have been taking the easy way out by slapping pictures up on my facebook account with complete disregard for my friends and family who haven't been sucked into the facebook black hole.
Looking back I can't believe I haven't blogged about anything since September! I missed writing about how great work has been for me, how our lives are busier than ever with running to preschool and coping with the Grade 2 workload (don't get Carter started on the stress..), about watching the boys in Tae Kwon Do which Carter is kicking ass in, a fun and family filled Christmas made incredibly special by having Joel's niece and nephew for a few days.....what else first born turning 8 years old, celebrating my 36th birthday and my Father in-law's 60th together in a snowy Saskatchewan wonderland. Now it is March and Luca is 5!

A New Adventure for Luca

Today, Luca started playschool. I have one of the biggest kids in the class! Completely new territory!! I admit I was a bit choked up...he is my baby afterall, not to mention now I know where all this leads!

Back to School

A bit late...last week Carter excitedly left for Grade 2. I don't think he slept the night before as he was just so excited and anxious to get to school. I of course took him as his back pack was so jammed with supplies it was more than half his size and definitely weighed more than him! Do you remember what the first day of school is like? The excitement of finding out who your teacher would be and who would be in your class was nearly overwhelming!

Our conversation on the way to school:

Carter: Mom, is there anything more exciting than Grade 2?

Me: Certainly not today sweetie.

I have no idea where to begin...we were completely surprised by friends and family at a party, thrown for us to celebrate our anniversary on Saturday night. Surprised is not a strong enough word..we were blown away! We walked into the Gardiner's house to drop the boys off for a sleep over and we were greeted by friends and family and a house decorated with all the tulle and other decorations from our wedding! My mom was here for a visit and brought it all from Winnipeg and Cindy & Leonard snuck into the house to retrieve it when we were at work! Joel's mom and dad were there and that was a complete shock!

It was just so awesome to see all these people we love and who really helped us make it to the 10 year milestone all together in the same room! Unforgettable!

It was a great party!

I will post pics when I get some...but Tanis has posted some on her blog so have a look!

4 Boys 4 Hours of Summer Fun!

We thoroughly enjoyed this last weekend before the start of school. We got together with friends to make the last weekend before school a memorable one. We surprised the kids (2 entering pre-school, 1 entering Kindergarten and 1 on the way to Grade 2) with a rented inflatable jumpy-thing in the yard. Brianne decorated her van and picked all the boys up and had their back packs filled with back to school goodies. The kids were all surprised at the same time and were floored to see the yard. They jumped and jumped till they could jump no more!
