Cousin Minseo

Our cousin/nephew Minseo has been in town. He's visiting from Oregon State University. Roger took him out to play hockey, even though he's never played before. He actually did great! All of Roger's friends have been super nice to him, offering advice and tips along the way. Last weekend he went trap shooting and to the Richmond Night Market with the family. Here are some pics from his time in Vancouver. Sadly, he'll be leaving for Seattle and then back to Korea to fulfil his military service obligations. So suffice to say, he'll be taking a LOA from school. He now wants to transfer to the University of Washington or perhaps even UBC or SFU. For Father's Day we got to have dinner together with the whole family, well most of the family. untitled-1.jpg untitled-4.jpg untitled-1.jpg untitled-19.jpg untitled-23.jpg untitled-31.jpg untitled-37.jpg untitled-40.jpg

Roger's Birthday

Although Roger's Birthday was technically a few weeks ago, the grown-ups went out to celebrate at Science World After Dark last Friday night. Luckily Carol was available to babysit. Looks like a fun time was had by all. Here's a little slideshow Roger put together.

Catching up.

Sports Day was a big success. Last year Malcolm missed Sports Day because of the Teacher's Strike. This year's theme was minute to win it, with various events focussing on small, but difficult tasks. I believe Red Team won this year. As you can see from the pictures Malcolm was Team Green and Melody was Team Yellow. Fun was had by all. untitled-11.jpg untitled-12.jpg untitled-10.jpg untitled-6.jpg untitled-2.jpg untitled-1.jpg The end of the baseball season was a good one for Malcolm. The decision to let him play another year of Rookies was a good one. He's improved his attitude, throwing and catching. Next year will be interesting to see if he can keep up to the other kids. I suspect he'll be fine, especially with some additional reinforcement over the summer, fall, and winter.
