We are going to MAUI!! We are going to book this weekend and go for a week with Cindy & Leonard. We are busting!! Nana (Linda) has agreed to come to watch the boys for the week we are away (thankyouthankyouthankyou...). I have never been anywhere outside of Canada other than Vegas & North Dakota!! Ever since seeing the movie Honeymoon in Vegas I have wanted to go to Hawaii and I can't believe it's going to happen!

Thanks for letting me gush!

My baby is growing up

Last night Luca went to bed without his "sucky". He doesn't have it at the babysitter's house anymore and he has only been asking for it for bed time but last night he didn't say a word about it so we didn't offer.

Next step...potty training. Yikes not looking forward to that! Maybe he will decide its time for that on his on as well. I can dream!

Some Pictures

My Pirates!

Carter chillin' at the park
Me all dressed up for the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards Gala. I really look like my Mom!

I've been a bad, bad blogger!

If anyone is still visiting my apologies for being so delinquent. There has been plenty going on so I will get right to it!

Carter has his 1st loose tooth!! That is likely the biggest news in our world at the moment (according to him).

School has wrapped up for the year. Last week was the final concert and of course it was fantastic. As you can imagine, Carter is quite the preformer.

Two weeks ago I accompanied the class on the last field trip of the year. About 35 kindergarten kids and a few parents and teachers went on a transportation adventure. Took the school bus to downtown Edmonton and hopped on a city bus. Rode the bus to the LRT station and went for a ride and the kids loved riding "underground". We then got on the High Level Streetcar for a ride across the High Level Bridge. I managed to contain my fear of heights.
We then had a picnic at Kinsmen Park. It was a great day!

We have made all the arrangements for Carter to spend a second year in Kindergarten. He seems to be unfazed by the whole idea. On the last day of school many kids were talking about Grade 1 and I told Carter as we were leaving the school that I thought he was very lucky to be going to Kindergarten again and he agreed.

Joel and I are contemplating a trip to Hawaii in November with Cindy and Leonard. Their travel companions are now not able to go and we may just bite the bullet and do it. It would be a 2 bedroom condo in Maui. May be too sweet an opportunity to pass up.

I am also being wooed by a head hunter for a position in Langley BC. Not ready to go into details but it is an interesting prospect to say the least.

We are still without a driveway, sidewalk or grass at home. That is getting frustrating to say the least.

I have pics to load but I'll have to do that from home....I'll try tonight.

Earning Their Pay Cheque

Some pretty amazing doctors! Have you signed your donor card? Do your loved ones know your wishes? Hard to think about but so important.

Screwy Blogger

Not sure why but blogger is a bit messed up and wouldn't let me fix my last post. The clip I added is at:

Hopefully that works. See if you can count how many times Carter grabs his crotch LOL!!!
