Friday, the boys went golfing with grama & grampa and I finished (yes, I finished) Spencer's bedroom. It is done, it is back together and we made him clean his lounge today because now there is no excuse.

I did some grocery shopping and we played a family game on the PS3 (The Price is Right) and Spence won both rounds.

We all chilled after that - reading, playing games, tv.

Today, we got up early and headed to Cochrane skatepark and then out to Yamniska to go bouldering. We missed the trail and ended up walking up the mountain for a good half hour or so before we turned around, figuring we were lost. We walked back and tried to find the trail, but still couldn't and so we headed home.

We stopped back at the climbing gym to return the crash pad and ask for better directions than what the climbing book had. We'll try again later this week. We decided to stay for a bit and boulder inside as we hadn't done our bouldering.

We got home, made BBQ for lunch and all chilled for the rest of the afternoon....an hour hike and boulder after, just pooped us out.

We ordered Chinese for supper and now we'll chill for the rest of the night - tomorrow - total lazy day :)

Spence got up first and proceeded to get both James and I up so that he could get to the Cochrane skatepark early.

We got there by 9:30 and stayed until 11:30 (even though it was cold!) and then it was over to Jonathan's house for a play. We left their place at 12:45 and were home before 1:30.

We chilled and then headed over to Gregg & Kelli's for Canada Day BBQ. Had a great dinner there and then headed home around 7:30 so that we could rest for tomorrow. The boys are playing golf with grama & grampa and I'm cleaning and painting.

After breakfast, Spence started on drums but ended up giving up after about 5 minutes as the beats just weren't coming to him. He went onto guitar - which worked much better. Then he did reading, writing, and then he took a break until I got home from my dr's visit.

We read the Ranger, Iliad, Anne of Greene Gables. He did his weekly planning, updated his checking account and then we had lunch.

He did his math (subtracting fractions), spelling and Italian (he got 100% today). We left for park day and to meet up with Sonja and Noah (who had just finished school for the year). Park day ended up being great - we left at 4pm because we had to go to Home Depot to get the rest of the stuff for Spencer's bedroom (door handle, light fixture, electrical outlets).

We got home, made perogies for supper and walked the dog.

Today, Spence started off with the Ranger, Iliad, Anne of Green Gables (our new book) and continued with Fight Science. He had an early lunch and then did his spelling, read his book, did his writing and finally we moved onto math and guitar.

We headed out to do our recycling and then he went skateboarding, while Joanne and I went for an hour hike on the paths. I picked up Spence and we went to drum practice. This was the last drum practice until September. Spence got four songs to work on over the summer.

We then headed to the climbing gym for a good half hour bouldering session - we were both pretty tired and ended up leaving earlier than we had hoped (we had hoped to be there an hour). James was busy working and didn't make it to the climbing wall tonight.

We all got home pretty hungry and tired. We had taco stuff ready and so we all put together some food - Spence had nachos with taco beef, James had fajita and I had a salad.

After breakfast, Leora came over and Spence got a break from school :) Leora got her computer from me and then after she left, Spencer got started with a David Rocco cooking show, he was looking for something to cook and today it was couscous - so he was going to try one of the dishes, I still have to pull them off the web though.

Then it was time for science - structures today and then history - more about the French and their empire building.

Then it was math, spelling, Ranger, the Chosen, reading, writing & drums. While Spence did his reading, writing & drums - I headed off to a client site to do a site visit.

When I was heading home, Spence called to say he wanted to go to Walmart to get some game cards. We got home, walked the dog and after a short break got ready to meet James at Edworthy Park for a long board.

I did fine on the flat parts, but give it any sort of hill (even a small one) and I had to get off the board to walk - at least I did ok on the flat parts.

Tonight we had some rice and veggie chicken.
