Chancery: “Ok, I’m here now… is Asher coming?”



Asher: “Yes, yes.  I was just looking for something to have in the pictures.”



Chancery: “I’d like a kitten.”



Asher: “Remember we had a kitten, Chancery?  And he wasn’t very nice.”



Chancery: “But maybe if we got another one, it would be nice!”

Dog Pile!

If this doesn’t put a smile on your face, then you should watch it TWICE!

Eastern PEI

When my Aunt & Uncle & parents were all here, we took a Saturday to explore the Eastern end of the island.  We started by heading to Greenwich, the iconic boardwalk-over-the-marsh-on-the-way-to-the-beach part of the island.


The kids & I head out here about 4 times over the course of the summer.  We love it!


We found this colourful salamander on the path!


We then drove further to East Point lighthouse.  As the name implies, it is on the most Eastern tip of PEI.



Then we drove some more & found another lighthouse at Naufrage, & we found our hole again!


I can’t believe I just happened to be wearing the same shirt, in the same hole, 2 years later!



Then Asher & Chancery decided to play around a bit…


What happend to your legs, Chancery?

Saturday Morning Breakfast

24-117Saturday mornings we usually head out to McDonald’s for breakfast.  But a few years ago, we decided to check out the PEI Preserve Company.  In the summer, it is a great place to go!  They have a large gardens you can walk through, a butterfly house (which we still have not made it to, but next year we will!), ponies & sheep to say hello to, & delicious blueberry pancakes!


The kids love going to McDonald’s for breakfast, but if we mention going to the Preserve Company, they always choose to go there.  We can easily spend the whole morning roaming the grounds & trying to burn off all the pancakes we consumed!  Every time we have guests come & stay with us, we always take them there too.

Chancery: “Oh no!  The bridge is out!  My train is going to crash!”



Asher: “I fixed the bridge, just tin time for you, Chancery!”



Chancery: “Playing trains together is fun!”

Chancery: “I don’t know where that brother of mine is!  He should know that we do this every Sunday!”



Asher: “Here I am!”



Asher: “I was just getting my transformer toy.”



Chancery: “I think everyone out there has already seen your transformers, Asher.”



Asher: “Then I’ll have to think of something else for next week’s pictures!”

I Just HAD to Share This…

I posted about the first day of school last week, but I did not post all the pictures…  IMG_8483

This was me on the first day of school!



And the kids both got to ride the bus home, which made a good day even better!

Chancery: “Let’s work on our model poses, Asher!”



Asher: “Models sometimes work with props, like this hat!”



Chancery: “You’re doing a great job, Asher!”



Asher: “We could be in a Sears catalogue, Chancery!”



Chancery: “Show me the money!”



Asher: “We take cash, or cheques.  Sorry, no credit cards.”

First Day of School 2013!

Chancery is starting French Immersion Kindergarten today, & Asher starts grade 2 at the French school!


They are very excited about school.  Chancery woke up this morning at 6:30 & asked if she could get ready for school.


  Asher on the other hand, slept in & had to be woken up.  When he awoke, he jumped out of bed & asked, “What time does the bus come?”  I told him that PChad would take him to school today since it’s a new school & he has a lot of supplies to take with him, but he could take the bus home.  Asher was a bit disappointed, but he began bargaining for taking the bus tomorrow!


This is my first year with both kids gone all day.  What will I do with all my free time?

Chancery: “Today we are going to talk about conflict resolution.”



Asher: “Perhaps your sister is touching you, & you just don’t like it.”



Chancery: “Just try to remember that other people aren’t always trying to make you miserable!”



Asher: “Maybe she’s just trying to give you a hug!”
