After the lists…

Packing

…comes the packing.

Moving Sonic

Sonic moving

Sonic moved first, he’s got a new home with Gretchen and Hamed.

Ewok Stressing Out

Ewok goes next – as you can see he’s totally stressed out by the whole process.

Water Fight!

Ready for the waterfight

Thank you Sue & Jeff! A mega fantastic BBQ, bare-foot footie and water fight extravaganza.

Awesome River Rafting

Rafting team

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.

List of lists

List of lists

Old paper meets new paper with our fool-proof list of list of lists system.
There’s lots to keep track of.

For sale

For sale

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.

Last Day

Last day of Kindergarten

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.

Big Smile

The smile after the jump

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]

Back in the Saddle

Sit here

Too fast on the trail and slip-slide mud around mile 8 = bloody knee and a slower ride the rest of the way home.

Netbusting

Netbusting

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!)

Netbusting

The fantastic team.
Big big thanks to Sue and Jeff for coaching and organizing!

Wash

Muddy Bath

After a very muddy walk, Ewok relaxes in the bath (note the muddy water).

Ewok does pre-wash

Later, he returns the favour by giving the dishes a pre-wash.

Tag

Finn at the fort

Playing tag on the play fort at St Edwards

Game over

The boys won!
(Mum wasn’t playing)

Mud

Mud and the sock line

The trails were a tad muddy from all the rain we’ve been having.
Luckily, a sock kept some of me nearly clean.

Too busy talking

lunch

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

VFFs in the morning

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.

Please play

Ewok on rug

If you can resist this face then the next step…

Ewok's Squeaky Ball

… is to constantly drop the squeaky ball at your feet until you relent.
