Birthdays & Stuff

Chris turned 13 on June 29th. We hosted a bunch of young yahoos for an over-nighter – which was fun and challenging. Everyone survived. All the boys at my house are good.

I’ve been trying to paint our old yellow house blue. Scraping and priming old worn cedar shingles is no picnic in the park. There are several other battle fronts – the weather, time, selecting the right shade of blue, re-selecting and re-selecting the right shade of blue. Ugh. I’ve got one side almost done. I'll add a few photos sometime.

The boys were just little the last time we painted. Now, Victoria is available to help. She’s a great painter. We hope to be finished by the end of August.

The kids are in Halifax today. Chris and Jonathan are involved in the 59th Annual Maritime Fiddle Festival. There are workshops, competitions and concerts through Sunday. We don’t know what to expect from this – never been to one of these functions. The boys will have fun.

Tuesday, July 1st was Canada Day. Here are a few photos for you. Hope you're having a great summer!

Oh I do want to see pictures of the shade of blue! Get some of those up!

Happy Canada Day, and better yet Happy Summer with those boys!

I saw your tractor video - hilarious, yet so informative. Need to work on the shaky camera though, made me feel kind of sick...but I am a wimp with motion sickness, getting it from everything, even treadmills. So it was probably just me. I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment...

oh yeah...the tractor video. I don't know what came over me that day. I did not think long and hard about it...that is clear. The shaky cameraman was fellow employee Adrian. The camera loves me...suppose I should post a link on my blog?

By all means post a link. So galant of you to come to the aid of a damsel in distress. The camera does love you.

Good to see that you are raising some patriotic kids. Will there be video of the fiddle festival?
