Family Bowling

It is true. Farming is a way of life. There is always work to do, always things that can be done. And it is easy to forget that you need to take time off, take a break and do something fun with your family and friends.

So today was a day we did just that. Reina, Wilbert's sister, is home for the holidays, so we went bowling this morning with the family.

They had the Glow-bowl black lights on, and Mataya was dressed very nicely for this. She did not bowl, and everyone took a turn keeping her from running down the lane to the pins at the end.

My bowling scores were not too bad. We had two lanes between the 7 of us. The girls played one lane and the boys another. The girls managed to get 3 games in and I broke 100 twice.

 For you Americans reading, this is 5 pin bowling and the balls are the size of a large grapefruit. It is a million times easier then 10 pin bowling.
 It was the third time Joash had been to the bowling alley, but the first time he could actually bowl. So the guys had the bumpers up in their lane so Joash could actually knock some pins down. I think he liked it over all, but it maybe was a bit long for him.
After bowling we had a super yummy lunch at Cora's, which is pretty much our family's favourite place to eat. It was a lovely day with family!

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.
