Kaden's team was back on the ice tonight and they were hoping for another win.
Kaden was hoping for a goal but did manage an assist.
They did win 7-2 but unfortunately two of Kaden's teammates ended up getting injured during the game (nothing dirty just accidents) and we are hoping that they are not seriously injured.

Homeward Bound

Our girls are on their way home after a short road trip in Kiandra's car to visit their friend Jenna at bible college. The roads in the city here were a bit sketchy but the girls' updates showed that they were not experiencing the same conditions on their way home....
I'm still surprised that I have kids old enough to road trip on their own and even more blown away by the fact that Kiandra has her own car and so we can't even say no to her going!

Speaking of homeward bound...Conrad and I looked at a bunch of open houses again today. Conrad found a creative use of this snap chat filter...

While we contemplate our own home decisions, Conrad was busy in the evening working on our master bedroom flooring:

The girls arrived home safe and sound around 7:30 and it was so nice to have everyone home again.

Tie Game

Kaden;s hockey team has been doing amazing this year. They have won every game they have played and have scored almost 50 goals already this season. Today they played the team that injured Kaden but they have been under review for the last few games and it was noticeably calmer than previous games against this team.
Kaden's team was leading 3-1 going into the third and they were trying hard to secure another win...
But the other team got 2 quick goals at the end of the period to tie it up. It will be a battle the next game for sure....

I heart my teacher peeps

I'm so thankful for the people I work with! I am truly blessed to work with so many amazing people. Even peeps that have moved on from our school I still consider part of my "Teacher Peep" family.

After a full evening and morning of interviews it was nice to enjoy lunch out today with these two:

They let me stalk my girls online as travel out of town to surprise a friend without (too much) judging ;) ....They totally rock!

not just a book

I am so blessed and lucky to work at my school. When I first started teaching here, I had the dream to one day see my first grade 1 class be the oldest students at the school. This was a big dream as I thought I would not have the opportunity to stay beyond my first year. Yet, here I am still here and now looking around my school knowing that, with the exception of kindergarten and new students, I have taught all of the kids in the school. It's a pretty cool feeling.

Today was our school's annual Fall book fair. Teachers can sign up for a book "wish list" so that families visiting the sale can pick out a little surprise for the teachers if they want. I returned from lunch today to find this book on my chair:

It was gifted to me by one of my first grade 1 students who is now in Grade 8. What a huge surprise that she would do that! I was feeling the love!  It's not just a book but a reminder that I am remembered long after a student is in my classroom.  I am blessed and lucky.
