We're at our first stop our big summer trip.......my little sister Marina's in N. Delta. Yesterday, we spent the day at Stanley Park & the Aquarium. My pal Kathleen joined us for the day....it was so nice getting such a long visit in!
Today we're having a mellow morning. This afternoon we're going to be attending a " Wicken Hand Fasting Ceremony". A first for my troop. I'm looking forward to it.......
Tomorrow we're going to be spend the whole day at " Family Days" here in N.Delta. My family has been attending " Family Days" for over 20years in some capacity. As youths my sister, friends & I participated/volunteered through our Leo's club. Since moving away from the lowermainland in 2001 I haven't been able to attend. I'm looking forward to introducing my children to happy part of my childhood & to catching up with old friends.
In an effort not to miss our fathers to much......who are both living it up down under.....Penny & I joined forces today. We shared kids duties, I made dinner & she made dessert. What holiday doesn't include dessert. She made a Canadian Pavlova !!! This was a first for my kiddos......they LOVED it !!
Ana's Brownie troop has been camping out behind the Guide Hall this weekend. She slept at home and has done her best at participating in everything else. Today, the girls had the opportunity to cook outside using " Buddie Burners". A couple of weeks ago they made their burners out of a tuna can, a birthday candle & some strips of cardboard. Each girl had the opportunity to light their own burner...she did great !!
Success !!! There's nothing like a grilled cheese sandwich you made for yourself.......
We are a family formed through adoption, foster care and most importantly choice...I am an earth loving, vegetable growing, frugal full time attachment momma to four beautifully complicated children. Welcome to our on line journal.
