We left later than we wanted - but still not too late. We got to Kelowna in about seven hours, with plenty of stops.

We decided to go eat food early, so Leora is heading over and we'll head off to Cush for dinner.

Today, Spence got up early - I sent him back to bed and he was back up after 10 minutes - saying that he was done sleeping. Guess he had a good nights sleep.

Today was going to be easy, as we had to finish getting ready for our trip. Math quiz, spelling quiz, budget & checking account update. Then he updated his xmas wish list on his blog, practiced drums, silent reading and then we finished off with Anne & the Ranger series.

We ate a quick lunch / snack and started to get the house ready. Recycling, used book store, finish packing, get the small cooler upstairs, etc.

We finished and chilled until James got home. Tonight was potstickers, burgers and fries - in other words, what was left in our freezer.

Tomorrow we hit the road for Kelowna and then Seattle.

So today went well, sort of. Spence was really tired, despite the fact he got up early. After breakfast, he did a mid-chapter math review and then writing. He watched Ancient Mysteries - Death Machines for history and then did his spelling, we read Anne and Ranger and he played drums.

We had a late lunch and he did his silent reading and then went and finished up his laundry. We then went through his closet in order to figure out what we had to buy on our trip and packed clothing for the trip (at least the first go round).

I headed to the bottle depot, went to the dry cleaner's for the suit replacement cheque - he was nice and topped up the insurance payment to the full value of the suit. I did a few more chores, painted a strip of my siding - it looks like camo right now. We're in the throws of figuring out a paint colour for our siding - I'm ready to paint the entire complex fuchsia!

Dinner was hot dogs and perogies (getting to the dredges in the fridge) - only one more night of that before we're on the road.

Today we did our math, spelling, reading, writing, drums and art and were done by lunch. I headed off to a client. I worked until it was time to head to my mom's night out for coffee and the boys went to Salt & Pepper for supper. James had two plates and so did Spence (who had about 9 tacos).

I came home and as I was leaving the restaurant noticed that my necklace was gone - the one I never take off... :( I am sad. I've emailed my client, to see if it broke at their office as I couldn't find it at the restaurant. I'm hoping to still find it.

Today, Spence got up - had breakfast and started with math. Today, we were doing slope changes and graphing. He did his writing practice, silent reading, spelling and drums. We finished off with Anne and laundry (3 loads so far) and then got ready for Jonathan to come over for a play.

He finished his lunch and Jonathan was over and the boys had a great play for a few hours. When Jonathan left, we got supper ready and are chilling for the rest of the night.

Today, James got up and promptly tried to wake me up at an ungodly 7am. I slept in until 8:15 when I finally gave up due to the noise he was making. Spence slept over at grama & grampas so we only had to make breakfast for us.

After a long walk, I finished painting the bathroom and went to finish sanding the cabinet doors. I forgot to fill the router marks, so I could only finish one door completely.

The rest of today is just chilling. James and Spence are both relaxing and I'm going to do a few chores.
