Random stuff...

Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I'd last posted... Here's some of the stuff that's been going on...


We bought a new van last weekend. Well, it's a used van, but it's 7 years newer than our old one, so I'm pretty excited. It's an extended van, so more storage space and it has a CD player-- I'm so happy about that! :) We don't have it yet, but hope to pick it up this week, once everything goes through with the bank.


We had hoped to have our garage sale this week, but it rained. Again. So we're planning on next Thursday. So far, the forecast is sunny and 23. I hope it doesn't change.


It's Father's Day today. Cam picked up a few things for himself last night at Canadian Tire, after we'd had supper with his family. We took him to see Kung Fu Panda this afternoon at the theatre. A big splurge that he griped a little about, but I think he liked it. I know I did.

Father's Day always brings some mixed emotions. It's good to focus on Cameron & his dad, but I'm also reminded that my dad is gone. I can't believe it's been eight years. I still miss him a lot.

We're almost done with ROX for the summer. This morning we had our Coaches' Sunday, where the kids hang out with their coaches (small group leaders). Next Sunday is our Wind-up, which should be good. We always follow it up with a picnic at the park and games for the kids.

I made this earlier this spring to post in our ROX area:

It's two 16"x20" canvases that I painted with our memory verse for our last unit (Matthew 5:16). I was inspired by (& basically copied) this piece of patterned paper from Scenic Route. I'm going to hang it somewhere in our home.

Well, I should go and work on supper. I'm making Tony Roma's ribs (well, pork buttons), baked potatoes, grilled veggies and a homemade ice cream cake for dessert.
