Jackson: Jumping the cliffs at Eagle River and scaring the &%$# out of his mother. 

Lily: My girl stuck to the small falls and jumped the little cliffs which also bothered me but didn't feel as scary as the 30 feet her brother jumped.

Jackson & Lily: While we were in the city last week visiting friends, my family indulged me in my desire to go to the Sunflower Festival in Chilliwack. We'd never been but you better believe I hope to make this a yearly event now. So beautiful and fun.

Jackson & Lily: We headed over to Texada Island for the Skimjam & Sandcastle Sunday and had a great time up until someone's hand got sliced on a clam shell during a fall. Fortunately after a visit to the first aid tent, it was determined that no stitches were necessary so he got bandaged up and we carried on with the day minus any skimboarding. We also felt grateful the clam didn't get him any where near his wrist.

Jackson: We've been at the beach a lot these last couple of weeks and it has renewed his love of skimming. 

Lily: Much like her brother, she loves the water.

24-29/52

I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post. It's been a whirlwind of busy. School ended and then the fun race began. We saw Paul McCartney (Jackson chose not to go this time :( ), we spent a week on Savary and then had two family reunions that included 12 people staying with us for a week. Finally life is slowing down and we can relax and enjoy summer a bit and hopefully post here more often. One can dream. Enjoy the catch-up.


Week 24

  "a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2019"
Jackson: Canadian boy leaving our local Tim's with his iced cap while proudly sporting a Raptors jersey the day after their big win. 

Lily: Posing in the lavender that is plentiful in our yard. 

Below with their Dad on Father's Day. 
Week 25
 Jackson & Lily: Posing on the last day of Grade's 10 & 8. Craziness!!!
Week 26
 Jackson: Ready to head out and watch the fireworks with friends on Canada Day.

Lily: She's a big Pixar fan so we made a special trip across the water to Courtenay to go to their nice theatre and see Toy Story on the big screen with comfy seats. 
Week 27
 Jackson: Jumping the dock on Savary Island. 

Lily: All smiles after watching Paul McCartney in the 12th row on the floor at BC Place in Vancouver. 
Week 28
 Jackson: He really is part fish. He loves the water, ocean or lake. 

Lily: Always willing to pose amongst flowers. I'm so glad

 Week 29
Jackson: He was lucky to be invited up Powell Lake for the night with friends who took him boogie boarding. He LOVED it as I expected he would.

Lily: Peeking through a big old root while we were hiking in the forrest one day.

Week 21 
Week 22
Week 23
 "a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2019"

Jackson & Lily: It's been a crazy few weeks again so another 3 weeks in 1 post.  Dance/musical theatre ended with a ton of rehearsals and recitals. Lily went away with her Pathfinders to Vancouver for the weekend and we have had a bunch of company on top of regular life and work. There are officially 10 days left of school for the kids and potentially 14 more working days for me. I cannot wait to have a long break even though summer is gearing up to be pretty busy for us in July. I'm so happy we have 2 full months to enjoy before the reality of a new year begins. Life is good just maybe a bit busy right now.

Jackson: Thank goodness we live close to the golf course. If he isn't there working, he is playing or at the driving range. It's his new passion.

Lily: My girl has a busy few weeks ahead of her. This coming weekend, she will travel with her Pathfinder troup to Vancouver and following that, three days of dance rehearsals begin followed by three days of recitals. I never like to wish time away, but I'm looking forward to the future where we don't have much to do. :)
