The family went camping last weekend for three days. They went with the Htans and Proust families. Unfortunately, Jayden was very sick and the Hundle-Addah family couldn't attend. One of the best things about Alice Lake campground is that the roads are paved allowing the kids to ride their bikes and scooters with ease. Also, having electrical outlets is a big added plus. Roger even brought his waffle iron! It was a nice few days away, with good food, good memories and pretty good weather. Here's a quick slideshow Roger put together.

Nothing makes you realize the passing of time than to watch children grow and develop. As much as I stay the same in look and feel, the kids are ever-changing. Little Jada is now 4 years old. She's growing up. We had the privilege of attending her birthday party a few weeks ago, but this past weekend the family attended a home bbq. Auntie Shannon even arranged for a pony! Here are some pics:

Well it was pretty cool to see Uncle Calvin and Auntie Shannon's new tent trailer. They're certainly living in the lap of luxury. No more silly tents for them. 9 families, 16 adults and 14 kid! As usual, the food was delish and the company even better. The weather was very warm and it was nice to be lakeside. Here's a slideshow that Roger put together.

The family helped celebrate Adrianna's 16th birthday last week. It was a lot of fun surprising her. Here are some pictures from the party and some silhouettes shot on the hill by the house. She's leaving for Vienna soon, we all wish her well.
The school year has been a great success for both Melody and Malcolm. For Melody, although it was a bit of a rocky start she did very well with the adjustment of starting school. Here's an excerpt from her report card: "Melody had a very successful Kindergarten year. She learned so much and is well prepared for Grade One. Melody says the most important thing that she learned in Kindergarten was to count to 100 because 'some people don't know how'. Melody was most proud of the work that she did in writing because "I used to not know how to write'. We had many varied experiences during the Kindergarten year. On behalf of the family, we'd like to thank Mrs. B for her efforts this year. It's certainly been a great experience for our daughter. Also, despite all our homework woes, Malcolm did really great too. We're very proud of him. In fact, at the end of the year he was one of the kids chosen to receive both the Citizenship and Effort awards in his class. Here he his being recognized at the end of the year assembly. Mrs. Moy: Here's an excerpt from Malcolm's report card: "Malcolm has had a successful year in grade three and a very busy third term. He enthusiastically participated in many activities including: Jane's Walk, the Burnaby Village Museum field trip, and the Mad Science Workshop. Malcolm is one of the first students to lend a hand without being asked; it is common to see him helping a teacher tidy up, simply for the sake of being kind. He feels that his greatest achievement this year was, "reading because now I am great at reading". Malcolm states that his greatest challenge thi year was, "math because it was hard". Here's a good comparison, between the first day of school and the last day:
