We're a little behind on the blog posts these days. For whatever reason, they've fallen off the list of priorities, so here are a few weeks combined into one.
I'm happy to report that school is in full swing, both kids have adapted very well to all the changes. Non-withstanding the first few days of kindergarten that involved some tears and quivery bottom lips from the Kindergarten side, Melody hasn't looked back since. Every morning at drop-off she gives a hug then right on into the classroom. It looks like we've finally seen a turnaround from Malcolm too, with respect to doing his homework. In the weeks that preceded, any mention of homework brought on some serious tantrums and bad behaviour. The introduction of an allowance, bonus points (at school), and whatever else has produced a welcomed change. After Monday's epic battle, he managed to settle down and finish his work. Let's hope it continues. Cause if he things grade 3 is tough, he's in for a shocker.
Hastings Little League put on a fundraising event at the track a couple of weeks ago. The funds are to help with the construction of the new baseball diamond. It was a beautiful day filled with sunshine, small winning wagers, and some magnificent animals strutting their stuff.
The Trap Shoot Shootout Fall Invitational happened last weekend. Roger organized and hosted a trap shooting tournament for his friends this past Sunday. Albert managed to edge out Roger by one point for the Gross prize and Colin who shot lights out 21 in the second round managed to capture the Net prize. The names are being engraved as we speak. Roger is hoping to make the event a annual occurrence. Here are some pics:
