…comes the packing.
Sonic moved first, he’s got a new home with Gretchen and Hamed.
Ewok goes next – as you can see he’s totally stressed out by the whole process.
Thank you Sue & Jeff! A mega fantastic BBQ, bare-foot footie and water fight extravaganza.
Jessica organized an awesome white water trip on the Wenatchee for H’s cub scout den. Seen here is the crew of raft #3, ready for action.
F tackling the end of level on Kung Fu Panda.
Old paper meets new paper with our fool-proof list of list of lists system.
There’s lots to keep track of.
Long summer days and it is, finally, light long into the evening – last Sunday was the darkest June day for the last 15 years.
F testing and sorting pens in an Ewok-proof pen.
Nice job if you can get it.
One today, June 17th.
Happy Birthday to you
I went to the zoo
I saw a little Ewok
And I knew it was you
One pre-loved Honda Element.
B.C. to Washington to Oregon (many times) and back.
Mountains, volcanoes, beach, snow, rock and sand.
Kayaks to crampons to footballs and snacks.
If only the wheel ‘twas on the right side.
F’s last day in Kindergarten with the amazing and wonderful Mrs. Ito
(and the wonderful and amazing Mrs. George).
We’re going to miss Bear Creek.
A beaming smile from H after he nailed the last jump on the Cedar Run trail.
Yes, that jump on that trail. Definitely, please, don’t tell Fay.
[No, I’ve no idea what my expression was meant to convey]
After the sleep-over came the big Lego build. Very intense.
Ewok in the long grass just before I wacked it with the mower.
No more long grass.
Too fast on the trail and slip-slide mud around mile 8 = bloody knee and a slower ride the rest of the way home.
Gone, but to a good home.
Pass on good things.
Even if the trails are wet, slippy and muddy.
A little celebration yesterday after Ewok and Fay passed their PPST and PPAT tests for the Delta pet partner program.
Netbusters in action outside again after a long winter playing indoor.
A mini-tournament down at starfire sports (Steve, take a look at the facilities there!)
The fantastic team.
Big big thanks to Sue and Jeff for coaching and organizing!
After a very muddy walk, Ewok relaxes in the bath (note the muddy water).
Later, he returns the favour by giving the dishes a pre-wash.
Playing tag on the play fort at St Edwards
The boys won!
(Mum wasn’t playing)
The trails were a tad muddy from all the rain we’ve been having.
Luckily, a sock kept some of me nearly clean.
So didn’t really cook nearly us much as expected, so lunch the next day was egg-burgers!
A delight not sampled since leaving behind the land of B&Q burger vans.
Morning after the party.
A warm (albeit Photoshop enhanced) glow, unfortunately not from early morning sunlight, but instead from the rain clouds diffusing through the orange telco-branded pop-up that Dawn & Mark leant us to stay dry.
If you can resist this face then the next step…
… is to constantly drop the squeaky ball at your feet until you relent.
F reading Toy Story, on an iPad.
