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. :)

17 & 18 with Yua and Charlene and Week 19/52

 "a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2019"

It has been a busy few weeks but I refuse to let go of my Living Arrows and this blog of mine. Fortunately I'm good at getting the pictures just not making time to post.  So...here we are three weeks since my last entry. We hosted two girls from Hong Kong. Yua and Charlene are only ten years old and they travelled from Hong Kong to Powell River to live and learn the Canadian life for just under two weeks. Once again, we felt as though we got the two best kids of the group that came to PR. Both girls spoke and understood English very well. They were into trying new foods but also appreciated our trying to make food they would enjoy They climbed trees for the first time ever, put their feet in the ocean and jumped in a cold local lake. We loved them like our own and hated to say goodbye and feel so grateful for todays world and the ease of connection through social media and text. It was another fabulous experience for our family. I hope to post more on it later as I took tons of pictures. The week after the girls left, the kids and I travelled to the city so Lily could participate with her Theatre Company in competition. Her group received Platinum in their category AND we got away for the weekend and shopped and ate out and had a great time.

Jackson: Easter weekend for my boy meant a whole lot of hockey. He got Digger (the hat he is wearing above) in game three and scored several goals over the course of the weekend. His team ended up with the Bronze medal. 
Lily: My girl spent a lot of time baking and with her younger cousins at a couple different family gatherings. The pic above was taken in an old garden shed on our cousins new property.

Jackson: He wasn't keen on dogs until we got our own and now, much like me, he's all in and 
LOVES our babies so much. 

Lily: She had a girlfriend over on Saturday and they spent much of the day playing with make-up and making videos. I lured them outside for some photos in the sunshine and snapped this one of her.

Jackson: My boy had another big week. He won the Mike Fraser Junior Official of the Year at the Hockey Awards here in PR and then landed his first part-time job at the golf course. Go Jackson Go!

Lily: She's my girl, my muse and always game for photos. My Flower in the blossoms makes my heart burst. Scroll to see the other options this week. It was hard to pick.

Jackson: Standing on a beach in Mazatlan, Mexico. He did as I requested all week and sent me a text every day to let me know what he was up to. He's a lucky guy to have had the experience. He had a super trip and loads of fun but I sure cried when he came home and hugged me. I didn't think I'd react the way I did about him being away for 8 days. It was hard. 

Lily: Her light kept my mind off of missing my boy too much. I took this pic of her on Granville St. in Vancouver. We spent a few days in the city wandering, shopping, getting our nails done and eating good food. It was a great distraction.
