Report Card procrastination at its finest...

...a few weeks ago we were told that our completed reports were due on Friday at 3:30pm instead of Monday at 3:30 like they usually are. So...I should have spent THIS weekend writing report cards but instead I convinced my friend Janice to drive out to the oil and vinegar store because they were having a 2 for $20 sale AND I had a few bottles to refill which made it even cheaper.

I love the oil and vinegar store:

After that stop, Janice and I stopped for lunch before driving home:
Unpacking my new purchases (pineapple and traditional balsamic vinegar and butter and dill oil) I realized I may, maybe, have an oil and vinegar problem. ;)

After supper, I drove Kaden to the pool party that had been planned for the evening with some friends from church. Since my friend Tammy was the host, I stayed to visit. It was a nice night to sit out by the pool:

By the time I drove 2 of Kaden's friends home, it was much to late to even think about starting report cards! ;) Especially when I realized I was going to be under my 10,000 steps for the day and had to go for a late night walk to get them in before midnight!!

Last minute...

Today our published book arrived! It's been in the plans since November and I finally got it ordered and today it arrived! It was a very exciting day for Grade 1 friends:

I also found out at the last minute that there was a parent BBQ for all the mission team members and their parents for some final instructions for the trip next month. I found out from Kaden at 5:30 and the BBQ started at 7:00. It was a quick stop at the store for a salad and dessert and then off to the BBQ for supper.

At least it was a gorgeous night for it!
Along with some final notes and a time of prayer for the team we received official documents and itinerary plans and the tickets for the flights. They leave in 19 days!

Life on the Sidelines

It was a gorgeous night for soccer tonight...even Kiandra thought so because she came along too:
Kezia's team has been at a huge disadvantage all season: too few players for each game and tonight was no exception. Between most of the girls working and exams and injuries and girls on an exchange for the first few weeks, Kezia's team has played short and/ or with no subs each game.
They worked hard at keeping it 1-0 for the nearly the whole game.

But then the other team scored twice in the last 5 minutes. The girls just ran out of steam. It was a disappointing loss on a beautiful night.

Exactly what she wanted...

Kezia had outgrown her bike and was looking to replace it with a cruiser style bike. She sold her old bike on Kijiji and began searching for bikes with very specific criteria:

pastel colour--preferably blue
no hand brakes
wide handles
neutral paint with no fancy decals or designs
front and rear fenders
no funky colours on the tires
with a basket or a bike that would work with her current basket
not $600

She looked and looked and today a bike came up with all the things she wanted. I looked at it on my way home from school and we facetimed so she could "shop" with me. She even got a $10 discount offered since the back tire had a flat in the inner tube. It was exactly what she was looking for!
The inner tube was a $5.49 fix and Conrad will attach the basket soon and then it will be exactly the bike she was hoping for...even the perfect colour. Not bad for $140!

Did some back to school shopping (already!!) for Kaden. While looking for some sandals for our upcoming trip I found these shoes for Kaden on sale from $69.99 for $20

and these on sale for $35 and also regularly $69.99.

Since I had a $10.00 off coupon AND an additional $10.00 off in my shoe warehouse rewards account, I was able to get both pairs for less than what I usually pay for 1 pair.

Ball Hockey

Another ball hockey game for Kaden and his first penalty of the season:
It was a close game that ended in a 3-3 tie game. Kaden added another goal to his record.

Sweet treats

We went out for lunch with Conrad's parents, his brother and family and couldn't resist taking home an old favourite: French Silk Pie
This bouquet was a sweet treat for Kaden's friend as he attended his school's year end dance recital:
This was the best pic I could get of him holding the bouquet:
and it was a sweet treat to walk around new neighbourhoods with this guy as we waited for the dance recital to end and we got in our step allowance for the day:
