Chloe is a Sears girl

This weeks flyer.
She looks like she's up to something...

grade 2 is behind us, She's a Third Grader now

Fiona's made her way through her 4th year of school
a happy graduate with excellent marks and big smiles
And somehow, third graders are more co-operative as of today. I'm liking this!
NOTE: look at SEPT. 2008's first day of grade one photo on the blog.
same dress, same girl - just 2 grades later!

CC's Birthday

Simon and Chloe stayed with Gramma while Mommy and Daddy went out for dinner.
The "cakes" and presents were lot of fun, and I think it was a fun birthday for all.

Test day... success for all

Test day a Tecumseh TaeKwon-Do was a success for all testees. Natalie achieved her 2nd promotion to Yellow belt, picutred here with her friend Nikki, who also got the same promotion.

And, after nearly 7 years of TaeKwon-Do work, Today was test day for my 1st Dan.

It wasn't a cake walk, that's for sure. But I came through the other side and was presented with my black belt. I've got some video of my breaking and self defense, which was sort of fun, and I'll post that after I edit it down a bit, and reduce the size.

Pictured at left with the two head instructors, just after they presented it to me.

I don't think it's really sunken in yet. It's been such a long journey to get here, and there's still so much ahead. But it's a significant milestone on the journey.

birthday boy surprises

Glenn turned 45 today
and his 3 holes in one were fence post holes, not golfing
but he found a nest of baby ducks in our pond and a new robin's nest outside fiona's window.
lots of lovely nature miracle surprises.
all he needs to do is go out and get his chain saw!

shearing day shots

what a day we were blessed with
lots more pix to come from our on-site photographer and more but for now, here are just a few shots from busy busy gramma's lens.
WE estimate 300 people on the farm on Friday, June 4th
with a super circle time off the laundry porch, parking across the street thanks to the MIllers! lots of kids and lots of fun.
now to plan next year!
I was already called aside at a local market today as I had on the shearing day shirt. The woman had seen the super chex news footage and wanted to see if it was our farm!
now to turn it into a profitable shoulder season business!
