Making friends

Their relationship is improving...

They can get a bit closer to each other without the little one hissing the whole time...

Princeton still prefers just spending time with us alone without the pesky kitten. This is where I found him with Kiandra after she fell asleep this evening. He is such a cuddle cat. I hope the kitten becomes one too.

comings and goings

My mom booked me for a day of errands. She doesn't drive and so she needed me to take her to a few places. Since I had a gift card from my students, I took her out for lunch.

Kiandra babysat my nephews during the day. Drove the younger ones to art camp, drove the oldest one back to our house because Kaden was finally awake and then Kaden went back to their house for a sleepover and Kiandra went to work. Kezia spent the day at the beach with her friends.

Since all three kids weren't home for supper, Conrad and I went out for supper using a gift card from one of his customers. Kezia joined us there for dessert (It looked pretty funny that she was sitting in Earls with a Boston Pizza take out box with her leftovers!

I was short on my steps today and so I walked home from the restaurant and stopped in to see if Kiandra was almost finished and the restaurant was almost empty and so I knew she'd be done soon:
When she was finished we walked home together with another friend who finished at the same time and lives along our route home.

A day for errands:
(Apparently our eaves are not "standard size" AND the back one is different from the front)

A day for cooking: 

A day for walking to Menchie's to get in our steps:
(thanks to my generous Grade 1 friends)

I do love Thursdays in the Summer!

Mexico Mission Trip

Kezia shot footage during the Mexico trip and created this video for the "Seven Sisters" YouTube channel:

She's Purr-fect

We are enjoying getting to know this little cutie;

Still deciding on a name....

Welcome Home!

We've been considering adding a new kitten to our family for awhile but when Kaden's friend brought a litter to school at the end of June, I fell in love with this girl. We thought another cat might give Princeton some company and a playmate. Today, now that everyone was home again, we went to pick her up:
Since she hissed and tried to attack Prince through the carrier at their first meeting (so much for being friends right off the hop!) we set her up in Kiandra's room while they adjust to each other:
She is a cutie!

When we first talked about getting a cat, we thought of the name "Harvard" but the kids think because this kitten is a girl that Harvard no longer suits her. We will have to find a new name for her....

and....they're home!

As we waited for evening to come and the time to pick up Kezia and Kaden from the airport, Conrad's parents invited us to join them for supper and Kiandra was our server. I was able to watch them on the flight tracker app and watch them get arrive on their plane in Phoenix and fly to Calgary. Technology is great.
and then it was finally time to pick them up!
They arrived home with lots of excitement and stories to tell:
ahhh...all together again!
