Zoe's photos and a video

Zoe loves to photograph and videotape her days. Here are many pictures and one video that she took. I like the video. I'm not sure if it was intentional but she is showing Austyn playing a game on the iPad but you can see him in the reflection and our cat sitting behind his head on the back of the couch.

this moment - strings on stairs for kitties!

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Hockey - Almost Over

 Hockey is a big commitment. It means two or three times a week traveling to different arenas. Daddy sometimes has to adjust his work hours just to make it to games and practices.

 In we were in a small town many of the kids went to school together and stuck together. Here in the city the kids get placed in their team and are mixed from different schools. This means that it's easier to meet new friends.

Austyn has one game left before the play-offs so this past game most of the team met at McDonald's for breakfast.

When the house is clean

One aspect of our busy lives that I have a hard time keeping up with is house work. The interesting thing is that once the house is clean and all of their supplies are in the correct place they go right to work. Here they are working on their books. They like notepads for making books on different things. They add words, pictures and whatever else they want. Zoe's book is like a journal of whatever she feels like in that moment and Austyn's is a book all on dragons that he has created.

Book Sharing Monday - Gimme Cracked Corn & I Will Share

If your child loves cute "CORNY" jokes, this is a must read! Kevin O'Malley filled this book, bursting out of the pages with crack-your-child-up kind of humour.

Most of the jokes my kids got and they laughed from cover to cover.

The jokes are around chickens and the farm.

When asked if he wanted to go find the beautiful barn by Chicken, George replied, "Well, I have been feeling a little cooped up lately."

 Austyn made these creations to represent the characters of the Movie "How To Train A Dragon". The above picture is a dragon cave.

This is the Rock Crusher.

This is the Monsterous Nightmare with a random viking on it.

This is Astrid riding a Nadder Head.

This is Hick-Up and the dragon is named Toothless and it's a Night Fury.

A Fish Legs on a Gronckle and a Terrible Tennor.

 This is a viking home.
These are some more people from the movie. The man on the left is the leader. There is a Thunder Drum in front of them.
