The Wedding Weekend - Joash Style

Since Joash did not have a job at this wedding, he had lots of free time to do many things.

Joash loved that we spent a lot of our time at a farm. The reception was held at Karisa's family farm. When we first pulled up and got Joash out of the car, he looked around and acted his usual bashful self. But, soon he spotted some cows, shouted out the word cows, and got down and went to give them some hay. He spend a lot of time taking hay from bales that were being used as seating and bringing it to the cows.
He also tried to feed the farm dog hay and liked to show us all what the dog does with her tongue.
 When we had a bit of down time, the front desk at our hotel told us about this great park in the area, so we went to check it out. It was great! The park was split into two sections, one for older kids and one for kids about Joash's age. He loved it! He drove a truck with dad...
 And played with all sort of fun things in this big sandbox they had.
 And, being in the Olympic spirit, he did his best balance beam walk.
Here is Joash showing his enthusiasm for the Olympics and snacks at the hotel. Notice how his outfit allows him to cheer for both the American and Canadian teams.

 During the wedding, Joash sat with me in the front row. I was very glad Tiffany was with us because she was Joash's favourite person of the day. At the reception, Joash cheered and clapped loudly when everyone else clapped. He also rang the bell for a kiss.

The next day we helped with clean-up. Joash was especially helpful when it came to taking apart the dance floor. The guys took all of the screws out and Joash helped pick them up and put them in  a jar. He took his job very seriously.

Overall, Joash did great on the trip, but I don't think we will be taking any longer road trips until he is bit a older.

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!

I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

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…

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.

 The little home is full of all sorts of Mo…
