We found a glorious little music shop here in town, and I was fascinated with the many guitars all lined up neatly on the wall. TJ was there to buy a harmonica, but I could have stayed for hours, admiring the many instruments there. Just the smell of sheet music and piano strings make me giddy.

This year’s Volunteer Appreciation Tea was absolutely wonderful. The food, the cards, the music, the love just melted my heart. Thank you, girls, for your songs and for letting me be a part of your school year!
Sometimes, just in the midst of going through the mundane day-to-day activities, I glance at one of you and catch my breath. You are beautiful, and you are mine. How does that happen? Why am I so blessed?

I had an amazing opportunity to teach a class at our Stake Family History Conference, on Documenting our lives in photographs. It was well attended and I thought I did well – after all, it is my passion. One of the participants in the class suggested she take a photo of me teaching to document THAT moment in my life. An offer I couldn’t pass up.

Haircut time for TJ and B. I think they could have supplied a dozen bald people with fine wigs with the masses of hair they cut off. Even so, they both still have gorgeous, thick mops on their heads. We just weeded it to manageable status.

TJ has made good use of her $8 harmonica – blessing us with her unique musical ditties every chance she gets.

It’s officially summertime when we make the walk down to the Klein’s food mart on the corner to get some ice cold slurpees! Especially with unbrushed hair and our fabulous Tini Puppinis in tow.

Over 2 years of blood, sweat, and tears (and more than a few late nights and prayers) all culminated in Lyndon graduating with his MBA. He is truly an example of hard work, sacrifice, and dedication in every aspect of his life. Watching him walk across the stage brought tears to my eyes, and it was so wonderful to share that day with his parents.

As a final year-end party, the Pre-K class went bowling! It was hilarious watching 3 and 4 year olds trying to get that heavy ball to the end of the lane. We were there for a while.

A reptile show at the mall made an ordinary errand-run into an exciting event!

End of the school year means fieldtrips! Bayboo’s kindergarten class had a fun morning at Candy Cane park, playing on their crazy playground equipment!

Scrapbook/Craft nights at my place are becoming a ritual with my girls and I! I just love sitting, talking, eating, and laughing with my besties! Love you girls!

The girls have a ‘secret’ hiding place to the side of our deck where they have the most wonderful adventures. I remember having my own little adventures to the side of our deck, growing up. It’s nice to see the circle of life in my girls :)

A quiet Sunday afternoon spent quietly playing together, making memories, and building relationships (oh, and a cute little farm, too).

Oh, the joys of the colors of summer are beyond compare. Yellow day lilies just make me happy!

No more pencils, no more books, no more teacher’s dirty looks! Wait… looks like the kids are having FUN at school. Well, even if they love school – summer beginning is worth celebrating! Happy last day of school!

Day one of our summer trip to Calgary! Due to major flooding on highway 1, we had to take a long detour which took us through Drumheller. So, we enjoyed a visit with the dinosaurs at the Royal Tyrell Museum.

We have a lot of nuts in our family tree :)

Cooling off with an oreo milkshake from Peter’s Drive-In. We loved reliving our memories of Calgary with our kids.
