::Emmerson:: New Bed

Posted 2018-06-12 19:57:28
Well, since B broke his bed, Mom and Dad decided mine was at risk of the same issue down the road. I was jealous of Bs new bed as well. So when B and Mom cleaned his room, Dad and I went to Ikea and I picked out the same bed for my room. After a few long days of cleaning and purging my room was all set. We said goodbye to a lot of [...]

::Breighton:: Oops! I broke my bed...

Posted 2018-06-12 19:18:40
Well, I climbed up into my loft bed for once last time and set off a huge weekend of chores. I managed to break a slat in the bed. Sadly we couldn't replace it. Mom and Dad zipped off to Ikea in search of something that would work and be able to slide all my legos underneath. They found a nice bed and we got to work. Mission accomplished, a place to sleep tonight. The [...]

::Emmerson:: 4-H Horticulture Contest

Posted 2018-06-10 19:50:31
We entered the contest on a whim. We knew we wouldn't have a lot of study time with our travels and wrapping up school. I did find time to work on it a bit. I really enjoyed learning more about plants. I even added a few new ones to the garden! The contest was hard but I had a great time! I struggled with the judging but I am not sure why. I really [...]

Just a few photos of some of the beauty of my garden. We are starting to attract new caterpillars. Our dutchman pipe bloomed and they are huge!

::Breighton:: 4-H Horticulture Contest

Posted 2018-06-09 19:09:28
E and I signed up for the horticulture contest. We really didn't get a lot of time to study but we felt we knew plants really well.We drove to the Hillsborough Extension office for the event. We explored the gardens there before the contest.  The contest was a lot of fun. I felt I knew the majority of the material very well but the judging section was a bit weird for me. [...]

::Emmerson:: Ukulele Class

Posted 2018-06-08 19:47:28
We enjoyed a week of ukulele music with Grandma Susie at the library. We took a class for a few hours daily for a week and then had a concert at the end. I loved play on my new uke. I did not enjoy the song writing part of the class. I wanted to write about sharks but the other kids wanted to write things that weren't true about shirts, you know MYTHS! The [...]

::Breighton:: Summer Fun

Posted 2018-06-08 19:00:08
E and I went to an escape room t the library this week. It was a lot of fun. We had to figure out some puzzles and unlock locks. It was not as awesome as the one in Banff but for a library program it was great! I also entered the Book in a Jar contest. I quickly figured out the book title and was eager to enter. I have been working hard on Algebra [...]

::Breighton:: Ukulele Summer Camp

Posted 2018-06-08 18:55:54
We signed up for MUM (Making Ukulele Music) camp at the local library. We had class for 2 hours for 5 days. We learned about 6 chords, how to play tab and tons of songs. We all sang along and learned to play. Grandma Susie and Mom came with us each day. I had friends in the class as well. We wrote songs one day!  My team wrote the dragon lyrics. I [...]

::Emmerson:: Happy 13th Birthday Breighton

Posted 2018-06-03 19:42:37
We had a fun time celebrating Breighton's birthday. We had a party at the beach for him. I loved building sand castles, riding in the kayak, swimming out the the sandbar and having a splashing good time with my friends. I caught a bunch of sea critters as usual. We had a little nursery going. Everything was safely released back to the water before we went home. B got diving lessons for his [...]

::Breighton:: Happy 13th Birthday

Posted 2018-06-03 18:48:31
This week we had a great party for Breighton at Honeymoon Island with some of his friends. Summer birthdays and lots of traveling friends mean it was a small party. We gathered at the beach and had a blast with the kids on boogie boards, riding on kayaks, making sand castles and just splashing around. We were graced with a small pod of dolphins that kept passing by. Everyone found cool sealife. [...]
