Sometimes when I get these snap chats during the day I wonder just how much free time Conrad has while he is at work.... ;)

I *may* have a slight "find my friends" stalking problem...I'm so thankful that Kiandra set this up on my phone before she left because I am able to "see" where she is on your adventures.

Kezia helped me shop for a coworker's new baby and we picked out some really cool stuff like these fox themed receiving blankets to match his fox themed nursery.

Perks of having an appliance selling makes having to replace a broken dishwasher a little less painful.

Kezia picked up her championship hoodie today and sent me a snap of what it looked like. I kind of chuckled when I saw that it just said "indoor champions" and then I saw my "the great indoors" pillow in the background. I think I am an indoor champion too :)

A wise friend told me that my prayer life would change when Kiandra left and she was right. It is so different to let go of control and just trust that God has it all worked out. It has been a comfort to get daily (sometimes hourly!) updates from Kiandra as she spends this week along in London. Our prayers have been answered as she continues to have an amazing adventure.

Today was a good wifi day and so Kiandra took our whole family along on her London adventure today as we were able to follow her on snap chat and instagram as she experienced her first full day of London Life...

It was a travel day for Kiandra today and this vrsly overlay was a timely reminder today that even though Kiandra didn't check in for almost 6 hours after her flight landed in London *ack* that I needed to have faith that God had her in His hands and I just had to trust that she had made it to where she was going.

Conrad signed up to be an assistant coach for Kaden's spring ball hockey team. He has to complete a 3 hour coaching course before he is eligible to be on the bench and so tonight he completed the first few modules.

Weekends mean that the time difference isn't an issue and these girls can catch up on facetime using snap chat filters....

Happy "Champagne" Birthday to Kaden who turns 15 on the 15th today!

Kezia stopped by the church where Conrad plays ball hockey on Thursday night to pick up her homework that she left in it when Conrad dropped her off at work and she sent me this snap:

You might be an old married couple when you watch family feud before bed...and laugh like crazy when one of you *cough* Conrad *cough* sees that the answer of volleyball has 51 points and says "Wow, that's gotta be the number 1 answer!" (because of course it is with 100 people answering :)

I was surprised to find this as my new screen saver when I closed some windows on my laptop:

That time had the self-control to go to Menchie's with Conrad and not break the eating habits I've been following for the last 7 days...

Some would argue that three degrees and snowing didn't really add up to a Slurpee day but this guy would:

Kaden applied for a job online today and asked me to phone his cell to make sure he'd hear it ring and this is how my call shows up on his phone:

I love writing and I love teaching writing and this writing activity is one of my favourites. From starting with this story scrambler to composing a rough copy to adding details to writing the good copy and illustrating it...I love the whole process!

Kiandra sent me this view from her bedroom window and I know she is counting down to the start of her trip but I'm excited that the countdown is also on to her journey home...

After enjoying some warm Spring weather lately, this snow fall was no April Fools joke... However even when things don't go the way I would like them to I want to be able to say:
