"a portrait of, and occasionally a quote from my children, once a week, every week, in 2017"

Jackson: He's addicted to his phone and it kills me. It's so tough these days to stop the madness. When I take the phone away he is basically helpless and has no idea what to do with himself. It's a battle for sure. 

Lily: Here I thought I'd let the week lapse without taking any photos of my girl. Then I went to upload some other pics and found these gems. She LOVES a wig and becoming someone else. She begged me for this wig in the dollar store the other day. I gave in and I think she's put it on every day since.

Jackson: He LOVES our puppies but is certainly more keen on George than he is Penny. She can be a real little brat though so I understand I guess. :)

Lily: Her and I got out of our cozy beds to a rainy Sunday morning and walked the Terry Fox run with my mom, sister and nephew. We ran for some special people we've lost to cancer that we know would've loved to be getting out of bed to go for a walk rain or shine. 

All shots are from my phone this week. Going back to school means life is a little bit crazy pants. I don't know how to keep up with everything but hopefully somehow I'll manage and pass my course. Fingers crossed!!!

Jackson & Lily: Both kids had a great first day of grades 7 & 9. This was the very first time EVER I didn't push certain clothes for the first day and hilariously Jackson wore the same shirt that he wore for the first day of grade 8. Hockey started this week (yay for Jackson's getting AP'd on the rep team this year)and dance begins next week. The routine of a school year has begun again.

Jackson & Lily: Having fun Savary Island style where we spent the last glorious week of summer vacation. I have loads of pics of them both enjoy the ocean but it seemed fitting to post this one of Lily as she went through pack after pack of gum on our trip. She's becoming a regular Violet Beauregarde. ;p
As ever, joining in with the lovely Donna and others over here.

Jackson: I've hardly seen my boy this week. He's been in hockey camps the last couple weeks and most days, he follows up his ice time with some cliff jumping or time with friends. He's a busy teenager but I'm grateful he still lets me take his pic. Hopefully this will continue for a long time to come.

Lily: She hosted her annual summer gathering this week and I took all the girls to the beach for pics. My girl loves to pose.

Oscker's 10th Harry Potter Themed Birthday Party


Turning double digits requires a great party. My sweet nephew Oscker requested a Harry Potter themed party for his champagne birthday August 10th and as ever, my sister and her creative ways rocked it! She got most of her ideas on Pinterest - check out her board here. Oscker and his friends loved it all especially the cake and the amazing goody bags. So much fun!

Blueberry Picking

Ed's U Pick Blueberry Farm in Lang Bay never disappoints. The blueberries are big, juicy and SO GOOD. My parents, Lily, my nephew and I picked and picked in the blazing sunshine a few weeks ago and got enough for everyone to share and some to freeze for a sweet treat later in the year. Blueberry season is a favourite for sure.
