Hi, it's Natalie with the Calgary Weather Report. Today it rained all day, and we had to cancel our school carnival. Later, we had to stand outside for a FIRE DRILL, with hail pouring down on us!!! What genius decided to have a fire drill on a day like today?!?!? My friend Sarah and I managed to keep kinda-sorta dry by going under my sweater, but we really didn't want to get wet because it was right before our band performance and we didn't want to be soaking wet! Anyways, it calls for 10-20cm of snow tonight, and 5-7 more tomorrow morning. Cross my fingers it's a snow day(if it has to snow at all). All our trees are in full leaf, and really having trouble growing with the weather we've been having. In fact, the last time it snowed, just a little, a huge branch ripped off our nabour's

last saturday was the community park cleanup. We hauled a bunch of stuff out of the park and Ravine. Our last load included a shopping cart and a bike out of the creek. Also had to take dad out of the creek as he managed to slip in twice (note the pants).that night we went to a wedding for one of Corinne's Colleagues. This picture also shows we clean up pretty good...

Take me out to the ball game...
A perfect day at the ball park Sunday. Halfway through the game at 4-1, Simon decided the final score should be 5-2 (for his and Chloe's ages) for the Jays over Texas, and it was!
We were going to head out after 7 innings but stuck it out longer and after the 8th we all got up on the JUMBO TRON!
That was way cool!

Sadly, today marks the loss of Rapsody.
She was an quirky cat who took many years to settle in with anyone who didn't actually feed her. Corinne got her about 10 years ago and she logged many air miles in the interim.
She/we spent the last 7 months coping with some form of carcinoma on her leg. She had still been pretty much herself, happy and mobile, until now, it quickly become too much for her.
For all her moodiness around most people, in the last year or so, (Rappy, or Happy as the kids first called her) she came to be very comfortable and affectionate with the kids and they with her.
She will be missed.

We celebrated Natalie's birthday at the local recreation centre. The kids had a swim and then ice cream cake and presents in the party room. We did the group activity of kids lifting each other with only two fingers each. (For the record, we didn't drop any of the kids!)
Much silliness was had by all!
