A Week in a Nutshell (well up to the weekend)

August 25-30

Well everyone has already experienced our amazing Renaissance Festival fun on the 25th. You can find that day HERE. But after so much fun in the hot hot sun it was back to normal on the Monday.

Zander finally finished his grade 2 mathbook so soon we will bring out the 3!101_4366

The kids really excelled in their schoolwork. So we drove over to McDonald’s and treated them all to ice cream. 59 cents a piece is always an amazing deal, especially when you need to buy 7!!!101_4388

101_4391We ended our week with Zachary over for the morning. He, Gabriella and their parents were going camping with Nana and Baba for most of the Labour Day long weekend. So he came over Thursday night to leave Friday morning. Though his asthma was acting up in the extreme humidity so they had to stay inside to play.101_4393

After the campers left we ran outside to check our beans… which apparently grew best if we ignored them completely!101_4395

Play on the playset…101_4396
