Summer Vacation

We are two days into Summer Vacation and things have been great so far. The weather has been lovely, though it could rain today. But we have been outside and it certainly feels like summer (though a bit windy to hit the beach, yet.)

We are also trying a little more structured chore chart thing this summer for some extra motivation and to give some structure to our day. The kids have things they need to every day and a job that will change each week. I wanted to do a little bit of  "brain time" each day, so Joash has a math sheet and reads independently for 15 minutes each day. Mataya didn't want to be left out, so we found a little alphabet workbook for her to do. It is so fun to see them using their brains.
 It makes this book lovers heart glad to see her oldest starting to love to read. He really, really likes to read non-fiction, especially about history and animals.

Mataya's 5th Birthday!

We had a great time celebrating Mataya's birthday yesterday. 
It took her a bit to decide what she wanted on her cake. First is was a bunny, then a flower and then she finally settled on a bunny with some flowers by it.
 She declared it perfect, so that was great!


Here she is with a few of her gifts. A few requests were her own flashlight (not pictured), bunny slippers, activity books with stickers and the biggest one was "slide on shoes."
After cake and presents Mataya said with pure joy, "This was the best birthday ever!"

A Visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke

A few weeks ago we had a great visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke. There was lots of cousin love...  Oom Emil love....
 And Oom Wilbert and tractor magazine love...
 There were lots of walks with Oma...
 And trips to the beach...
 They were here over Canada, so there was the annual Church Picnic, of course...

 It was a cool day, but no rain.
 But yes, I did wear my sweater on the beach.
 We also took a family morning and visited The Butterfly House
 It was lovely and peaceful and most of the family enjoyed it. Zeke was a little nervous the whole time, but over all did well. We also had a picnic lunch and saw the Young Company Show at the Confederation Center.
We had a great time and were sad to see them go. Hopefully the time will just fly by until our next visit.

What's Going On?

So I have been really bad at blogging lately. Anyway, here are some highlights from the last little bit.




And the biggest news is that Joash's other front tooth fell out. He was pretty excited about this and now has a pretty big hole in his mouth.
