Another summer is gone

Well we had an amazing summer, the heat was a bit much and for the most part it was sunny about 98% of the time. We went to camp for holidays and it was so nice to get away from the phone, tv, email & work. Our time at camp was filled with activity and I got to read a few books...always a good thing! We have had a busy summer. We bought the boys kayaks and they love them. We went tubing, walking/hiking/, biking, fishing, boating, tubing, swimming....all the things summer should consist of. Now it's time for back to school, Tuesday is their first day of Grade 1, so exciting!

June's accomplishments

It's a month of graduations, my daughter graduated proud of her, and the twins are graduating Kindergarten tonight, their journey is just beginning. Father's day was yesterday, the boys made things at school for their dad and for my father I will be taking him for a round a golf this week. I'm enjoying my new nursing job and life is good. I have a feeling summer is going to go by very quickly...last day of school is June today and tomorrow are my last 2 days of peace on my days off. I'm trying to savor the moment. This month was relay for life, an event that I have participated in for 3yrs...this year our community raised $100,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society...Amazing! Also this year my daughter joined a group and helped to raise money, very proud that her and her friends did this.

The Things We Find Inside

ahhhhh spring!

Two more days and it's officially spring, not that that means much in this neck of the woods...spring comes when it wants to, and usually teases us first before arriving. This weekend we had temps of +20 it's been amazingly warm! We went to camp to do ice, we cut ice from the lake to last for the summer, it's stored in a ice house, unfortunately I didn't take any pics of the ice house this year. It was a great weekend and we got to spend time with family and the boys got to see some of their cousins.

We came back from camp yesterday, today the boys are outside playing with the neighbors kids and from all the yelling I assume they are having fun in the backyard. I cleaned the deck, the van, raked the front yard and sprinkled grass seed, purged the hats and mitts and now I'm going to fold laundry from camp. I'm so happy to see the backside of winter although mother nature usually gives us a pile of snow after it's all melted away, so the ski pants and winter clothing will have to stay out a little longer.

Ahhh Fall...

Finally it's favorite time of year! I love everything about fall, the colors, oh the colors reds, golds, yellows, oranges, & browns. This is the time of year that makes me happiest, kids are back in school, thanksgiving...for us Canadian folk is around the corner then comes Halloween. I can't wait to decorate the house but I must wait until at least the end of september, I'm not sure I will make it that far.

Cooking this is the time of year I enjoy stews, chilli's, muffins, pies, hot apple cider, tea......the sun sets earlier the days are shorter, so many great things happen this time of year. Partridge season opens and I love going for a hunt with my hubby! I enjoy grabbing a blanket and watching a good movie at night or just curling up with some magazines or a good book, not to mention I have a crosstitch that is in need of finishing.

I know I completely skipped over summer, I think I will put some pics up in my album on the other page, we did lot's, we went to camp numerous times, fishing, canoeing, and lot's of visits to the beach, we had a hot sunny summer and it was nice to get out and do lot's of things, but...I'm happy that season is over!
