Summer Tidbits

Well since I last posted the school year has ended and summer is in full swing.  Here are a few of the things we have been up to:

-The three oldest kids took swimming lessons and passed their levels.

-Tin cans were decorated, turned into a tin can telephone, and used by the girls in the operation of their bedroom turned general store.

-Hot summer afternoons were spent at the pool and sometimes the younger ones had their naps there.  Once LT had her nap right in the pool.

-Movies have been watched specifically Anne of Green Gables and Anne: The Sequel (with Megan Follows, very enjoyable).  Has anyone seen Anne The Continuing story?  Is it worth watching?

-Sky had a couple friends sleepover.

-Hikes have been taken out to the rock piles in the pasture. Forts were made and games were played.

-Dad went to Kananaskis to climb a mountain.  He didn't quite make it to the top because of the snow but had a good climb nonetheless.

-The older girls camped out in the yard when dad got home.

-Naps were taken outside in the hammock.

Now we are packing for our trip to Winnipeg.  We plan to stay with my brother and visit Whiteshell Provincial Park, the Assiniboine Zoo, Lower Fort Garry, Grand Beach and who knows what else.  We are looking forward to it.
