A Monday

I needed to a see a picture like this of Joash today. We started off with a rather rough morning. I was thankful I had a meeting and Joash was already going to visit Oma and Opa. We both needed a break from each other I think. When we came back home, it went better, but he has a cough, which didn't help him to nap well. So, we went to the beach. And that made everything better.

Happy Canada Day a day late. We did have a crazy weekend which probably contributed to the crabbiness. Saturday was the church picnic. So much fun and such wonderful weather! We went to the beach afterwards and there was a nice little pool of water caught by a sand bar that Joash and all of his little friends just loved playing in. He splashed and put things in his bucket and just had a great time in general. He was pretty wiped by the end of it. Sunday was a nice day as well, though we decided not to go to the fireworks. And today was beautiful weather as well. You know the heat wave that is hitting everywhere, but especially the east coast? Well, this is one of the best parts of living on an Island. We too are getting that heat wave, but the ocean that surrounds us moderates the temperature to a lovely high 70's/low 80's. No complaining here! We love summer.

And we are hoping for a fun and happy Tuesday. I am thankful that each day is a chance to start new.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
