13 things I did today

1. enjoyed a full day of teaching Grade 1.

2. read another chapter in Charlotte's Web to them.

3. got a text from Kiandra that she had printed out a paper copy of  all her travel itineraries for the coming 2 weeks.

4. got a text from Conrad that he had paid for Kiandra's homestay in London at the bank.

5. told Conrad to buy Kaden an ice cream cake for Kaden's birthday tomorrow.

6. got a text from Conrad that he had bought the cake and a plastic hockey blade so Kaden could make a stick to play at Thursday night ball hockey now that he was turning 15.

7. enjoyed the potluck and stayed within my eating plan restrictions.

8. walked with Kaden to Jennifer's house and met Conrad there because they invited us for supper.

9. walked back to school right after supper to help set up the cookies that were being sold before the "Big Bad" play.

10. watched the closing night show of "Big Bad" surrounded by Grade 1 friends in the audience.

11. after Kaden decided to catch a ride home with Conrad after the show, I stopped at the mall to buy Kaden a pair of the Stance socks he had been asking for for his birthday.

12. I was passing the restaurant where Kezia works at about the time she usually is off and so I decided to hang out and wait for her and give her a ride home.

13. I took these pictures while I waited.

I love that Conrad enjoys snap chat as much as our kids do and that I get updates from him during the day...I also love that we are finally getting to enjoy some Spring weather!

Dress Rehearsal

 It was the dress rehearsal performance of "Big Bad" the Grade 8 drama presentation this year. It's hard to believe that it's been over a year since Kaden's class presented "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown". I was able to take the black and white head shots and colour pictures for the presentation board and I think it turned out pretty good. Tomorrow and Thursday are the two show nights.

For the Love of the Arts

Tonight was Kaden's high school's arts event featuring bands, choirs, drama, dance, and an art exhibit. Kezia came out to the evening as well and before the show we went for supper to Quizno's:

This picture caught my eye as I thought about Kiandra heading to England next week and it wasn't until later in the evening when I realized it was done by Kaden's friend Jen.

It was a great evening and really entertaining as we listened and watched the talented performers. Kaden played with the Grade 9 band:
It was probably one of the most enjoyable band events that I have been at.
We must have been enjoying it because Kaden sent this to us as he was sitting in the balcony after his numbers were finished:
I loved this picture that Kezia took after she realized that she and Conrad were wearing similar outfits:

Date Night

This is becoming a new favourite date night destination...

I've been eating extra healthy lately and the fact that this place serves lettuce buns in a bonus:
and not to stray from my healthy eating habits, I had a bowl a fruit at Menchie's instead of froyo:

Conrad had his usual chocolate and peanut butter combo:

Ahhhh....I just love date nights!
