Got to get out of here

Image hosted by

We're leaving for the cottage.  With 4 kids, a puppy, grandparents, and 2 doting aunts, it will be very busy, and fun.  We will be hiking, fishing, kayaking, surfing, visiting and maybe if I'm lucky, relaxing.

The true face of Kira

Finally, captured on film. Now you see what I am up against, what the WORLD is up against.


I just uploaded some video clips to JussPress | New

So far I only have a few of Puck. I'll try to get the kids on there soon. You can see Puck's favourite tricks. I'm still trying to catch him turning on the tap, but he's quick.

The lacrosse finals ended in heartbreak

okay, not really. But Damon's team lost. Damon was awesome too. He got the ball of their players many times and he had 4 breakaways and shots on their net. It was SOOO close and they only lost by one goal that was scored in the last minute of the game. The final score was 7-8. The playoff games were all really exciting, the crowds get really excited and cheer for their teams. We were sitting with our friend who is the mother of the other team's goalie, so it was all friendly cheering. Damon was a little bit sad, but he was proud when all the coaches from both teams remarked on how he played and excellent game. Matt's parents even came to watch the game and then visited with us afterwards.

I would like to say that we are finished lacrosse for the year, but that wouldn't be true. We were back at the arena last night and again tonight for Select team practices.

Kira at her brothers' last day of swimming lessons modelling her Gymboree Splash outfit (minus the matching sandals). It looks a bit wrinkled there, but I LOVE that outfit so much.

Now try teaching him to turn it off!

Puck learned a new trick this weekend. It's a pretty good trick for hot weather too.

He started this because he was hot and thirsty in the backyard and I offered him the hose on a low stream.  He lapped it up.  Then whenever I tried to use the hose for anything, he was jumping up and trying to drink from the stream.  Then he came inside and saw the kids washing their hands and saw that there was a stream there.  Now he is hooked and can even turn on the cold water in the upstairs bathroom.  It's our fault for having lever handles.
