The family has been dealing with a bit of a bug this past week. Last Thursday, Roger and Tracey kept Malcolm home from school extending his long weekend to extra long proportions. Melody has had some mild symptoms, but luckily nothing serious. Bad news is that Roger now has a sore throat; let's just hope that it all goes away quickly. Sometimes it feels like at least one member of the family is sick; it would be nice to have longer stretches where the whole family is healthy and happy.
The past few days have been filled with playing outside (Malcolm is especially excited that the water table has made its seasonal reappearance), a trip to the bowling alley, eating out and various visits to supermarkets around town for groceries and such. The family also had a chance to meet up with Chad, Wendy and Aaden on Friday night for dinner and a trip to a neighbourhood playground. Roger got to play golf with his buddies and Tracey snuck out the see the "Hunger Games" movie. Also, did I mention that I'm famous? I'm not usually one to brag, but I'm one of the New West dogs who was selected to be featured on the city's new electric boxes. Two paws up for me!
