November was a busy month at work for Conrad....

Flooring (finally!) going down in Kezia's room! She's been sleeping in her bed in the living room since last week.

Driving home from school on the last Monday in November and it's 3 degrees above zero?!

Kiandra completed her WSI (water safety instructor) course today and is officially a swimming instructor now! She is now eligible to apply to work at our city pools if she wants to.

We have been in the midst of house renovations now for 2 weeks. We are creating a new space and wondering where God will move us to be....

Conrad spent his "day off" today working on the house. He is installing flooring on the entire main floor and has to move the furniture around to do each room. He is awesome!

Kaden bought tickets to a hockey game for Conrad's birthday and because we had a BOGO from the show and save coupon book he splurged on front row seats and this was their view....

With the main floor of the house undergoing renovations, Kiandra had to improvise a table to eat her supper...


Today Kiandra offered to come to school to help in my classroom and she also was able to drive some of Kaden's volleyball team to the game after school. When she arrived, she brought me a surprise! I am blessed and lucky!

Conrad makes things beautiful....flooring installation began tonight...

It was 25 years ago today that Conrad first asked me out. Tonight we "celebrated" by putting in flooring (him) and painting closet doors (me). We've worked hard on home renovations AND our relationship and I am so thankful for the last 25 years and look forward to many more opportunities to work hard.

I was back at The Home Depot (again!) and found out that they were offering a $10 mail in rebate for every can sold this week....but I bought 9 gallons LAST week. The paint person said I should bring in the receipt and get it adjusted and I did...and they did! Woohoo! A $90 rebate is coming my way!

Required parent night for Driver's Ed this evening. I couldn't help but smile at the truth of this PowerPoint slide during the presentation....

Do my school families know me or what?! I also got 2 other cans from families of former students because they know how much cherry coke is my favourite.

I'm getting pretty good at Monday morning journals! ;)

Conrad started putting everything back together after painting and Jewlsey thought Conrad was making her a personal cat climbing gym.

It's hard to believe Kaden's team has won 3 games in a row AND they've scored 9 games each game...2 of this afternoon's goals were Kaden's.

I was thankful for a classroom volunteer today to cut up a new word work game for my Grade 1 friends.

Taking the boy for a late night supper before volleyball practice...he's lucky that coupons came in the mail yesterday and prompted this visit.

Conrad had the van yesterday to bring our dishwasher (which turned out to be working fine!) to work and to give the van an oil change. I found this on my dash this morning. I am spoiled.

Looks like my girls took advantage of the free Slurpees for backwards day at 7-eleven....

Conrad got up early to run before church and the cats were as interested in Sports Centre news as he was!

Saturday, November 5, 2016


Volleyball tournament game on the other side of town means we left the house at 7:30am on a Saturday....of course they got the earliest start time!

There weren't many people walking to school in their pjs so I was hoping that Kaden was right that it was, in fact, pajama day today! (It was!)

I realized Kaden's volleyball game was down the street from a place selling my new favourite doughnuts...of course I had to make a stop to see if they had any left for sale...a perfect treat for my half birthday.
