Trying to be creative with my photos - this represents "drive". It's what we drive, and our driveway. A familiar sight around here!

My favorite color is autumn :)

Raining today. It's been such a beautiful autumn so far, I have no right to complain. Instead, I'll just enjoy the view!

TJ and B gave amazing speeches during the Student Leadership Council race! With only 6 spots on the council, and many more kids running, I was pleased that TJ won president, and B won as event coordinator! Way to go, girls!

Meet the teacher night!

It stops my heart a moment every time I notice how grown up my girls are becoming. They get themselves up every morning, make their own lunches, get their own breakfasts, and are ready for scripture study by 8am. Love these girls!

Who takes the photos of the photographer? Well, it's very technical and involved.It's called using a tripod, setting the timer, and running like a mad woman to make it into the shot before the timer goes of!

I never tire of seeing the massive crowds of Rider fans on every street corner, making their way in droves to the stadium to cheer on our football team. You'll never find fans like Rider fans!

Bean salad = big hit with the parents, big flop with the kids. Good news? Parents buy it and make it - so we all get to eat it :)

A little quiet time on the ipad.

With summer at an end, these bikes won't be getting quite as much use. Time to get them covered up and ready for fall!

Back to school! My girlies were all excited to be back and discover what teachers they would have in grades 2, 4, 7, and 8!

Happy Labor Day! Jean joined us for a lovely picnic lunch and parade in Lumsden. Sun was hot, ice cream was cold, and hearts were warm :)

I know it's weird, but I miss getting mail when it's Sunday. I still check the mailbox every day, from reflex if nothing else.
