James and I got up as usual and had our breakfast and got organized to leave for Saskatoon by 8am.  Spence got up at 7:30 and was ready to go by 8am.

We left and the roads were great all the way to Saskatoon.  We arrived at the Delta and checked in - we opted for the Signature Floor (includes brkfst & appies at night), which is pretty decent. 

Had dinner with grama & grampa and then chilled for the rest of the night.

After breakfast, we read Inheritance and then Spence watched Brad Meltzer's show on UFOs.  We continued with spelling, his reading of the Driver's handbook and then math, printing, drums, essay and tidying up.

We then left for Parkour class for Spence and climbing for me.  He managed his full 2 hrs, while I only lasted 20 minutes and decided I had enough.

We headed home (almost 1 hour) and got Karma from daycare and took her to the doc - she's still not feeling the best.  Got more meds - hope to have her healthy in the next 10 days.

We pack up tonight and head out tomorrow for Jeffy's wedding :)

Today we did our usual stuff - Inheritance, spelling, math, driver's handbook, history, researched more for his essay, drum practice, printing & Italian.

I headed out for lunch with one of my clients and then home.  I got changed and headed back out to get James and we headed to the climbing wall for a quick climb.

For supper we had scrounge night - hashbrowns & pot stickers for James, hashbrowns w veggie chicken for Spence and macaroni for me.

After breakfast, we read Inheritance, then did a math quiz, spelling, driver's handbook, vacuuming, Spence worked on his essay, Italian, printing practice and then we headed off for drum practice.

Pretty chilled day - Spence was exhausted from yesterday and was busy limping around like a little old man.  8 hrs of solid exercise is tough, even on a young body.

It is family day in Alberta - so James went to work (tax season).  Spence went to a day-camp (a mix of gymnastics / parkour / martial arts) for 8 hours.  I spent the day trying to calm Karma down.

Found out she's scared of WD-40 (who knew).  I took her out to the tennis courts twice, let her run laps in the back yard for an hour, played fetch in the back yard for an hour - she will enjoy day care tomorrow.

I headed out and got James from work and then we went to the climbing wall before Spencer's class was done.  James has a sore neck and so stayed on the very easy routes...I had some sore arms / shoulders and found the easy routes hard.  I did enjoy watching the kids climb - they make it all look so easy.

For supper, I made scalloped potatoes (I need to find my old recipe - this one was too watery), gravy and veggie chicken.

In the meantime - Dave finally made it from BC and promptly went to sleep.  He's here doing a few jobs.

Broken heart mostly mended (nice to see), kiddo is doing fine today.

We pretty much chilled all day - took Karma out for a doggy play with Lexi.  James woke up with a bad kink in his neck and not feeling great, so we didn't do too much.

Other than a nap for me - got caught up on laundry, made some buns for Spencer's lunch tomorrow, garlic toast for supper, banana bread, pasta w tomato sauce, lamb and made the bed.  Overall a good day - forgot to make nutella pizza though.
