End of Year ~ Perfect Blend

Last day of school! Excitement humming everywhere with end of school wrap up activities, finishing exams and awards... Today my Littlest earned a Class Award for Reading! During the year she has read more than 22,000 pages from stories! (with comprehension!) She and her best friend spurred each other on and shared in creating the award. Her teacher has been wonderful and she wrote in his card that he is the best 'toute le monde'.
He loves his Tim Hortons coffee, so it seemed a gift card and this little rendition would make a pretty Perfect year end school gift.

I stamped the image multiple times to create the cup, complete with slightly darker lid. He even commented on my creativity, copying the cup style! He really does love his Timmie's!

I came home after the ceremonies and set to work making a banner to help celebrate the start of summer...I'll grab a shot of it over the next couple days...It's a happy greeting in our entryway!

Great Weekend with Friends

We ended up with wonderful weather on Saturday! Yay. The camping area is nestled in beautiful mountains. We hiked to some Falls, the kids kept busy with lots of things, including soccer.
 Later, there was a wedding reception in a nearby group campsite and they sent up the beautiful fire lanterns.
 A favourite part of any campout is sitting around the campfire. Good friends, good times. Under the full Friday the 13th Moon.

Happy Father's Day

Stumbled upon this video, and thought it might be nice for Father's Day.
We're off for an annual Father's Day Campout ~ this time in the beautiful mountains at Kootenay Plains. Hoping for nice weather.
