It was a relaxing day for the most part.  James was off to swimming after we had breakfast and walked the dogs.  Spence went off to lunch with grama & grampa after breakfast and some video game time.  I did some chores around the house and worked with Karma on some off leash training and then took a nap with the pups.

James and I got ready to head out for supper just after 4 and grabbed Spence a pizza.  We headed to Kensington and grabbed some coffee beans and a set of sunglasses for James. 

We met up with Tina at Muse after that and had a great supper, although they didn't have anything that I wanted for dessert, both James and Tina found something.

Getting back into it still .... as usual Friday's are the easy day, so it' wasn't that bad :)

I had the baseboard company come by to give me a quote on new baseboards (came in under $2k for the whole house - yipee).  Spence and I started a new book - Infinity, which is pretty good (not sure what it's about yet though).  We did math quiz, spelling, read about slavery in the new world for our history today and then he read some of his comic books before we got organized with a before soccer snack and got ready for soccer.

He did well at soccer - took lots of breaks, but was still tired and his legs hurt a bit from playing.  He managed to score a few goals, including one in the first five minutes of the game.  He was pretty happy.

After soccer, the guys hung out for a bit and then we headed home to do chores.  We finished our chores and then headed to the climbing wall for a quick climb.  I managed a whole 15 minutes with a bit of an incline even.  My shoulder hurt a bit when I was done, but by the time I got home it was feeling pretty good.

The boys headed off to Badlands to get a part for Spencer's marker and then to Best Buy for a new game, while I picked Karma up and finished making supper (pizza for Spence, flatbread / quinoa and ahi for James / veggie meat for me).

We plan on chillin for the rest of the night - James is playing his new game, Spence is playing some old games and I think I need to catch up on some over due work :)

Good first day back to it.....Museum time for Spence and then off to Amy's for the afternoon.

While Spence was volunteering, I went to meet with a client and then do my grocery shopping (which was well overdue - Community is sooo bad for me - bunch of new stuff, so I had to buy some of it to try out).

When we got to Amy's place we chilled in her basement while the crew continued to finish her beautiful new kitchen - it looks fantastic! 

We left just after 3:45 and made it home by 4:30.  I finished making supper (mashed potatoes, gravy, veggie sausage for me and took the spicy chicken sausage out for the guys to BBQ) and we watched some TV before walking the dogs and resting for the rest of the night.

Tuesday was busy and adventurous.

Spence was up at 7:30 and ready to go by 8am.  Sam came over at 8:30 and Colton came over at 9:30.  We were out of the house just before 10 and were at Bragg Creek Paintball by 10:30 - the kids got setup and played, while the parents settled up with the park. 

It was a great day - a bit of sun, a bit of cloud and warm.  We made hot dogs for lunch and shared cookies and drinks - great time.  We left at 3pm and were home just after 3:30.

Sam and Spence took Karma & Hunter for a walk, while I unloaded.  Just as I was unloading, a really loud thunder clap scared the living daylights out of me.  A few minutes later, Karma is rounding the corner at full speed - tail tucked, ears back and Spence is being dragged behind her, barely keeping upright.  Sam is running behind him and Hunter is sauntering behind him, slowly. 

Karma heads straight for the inside door and curls up as small as she can between the couch and chair.  Hunter is unsettled and the boys tell me they were just about hit by lightning.  So they tell me the story as they settle down and it turns out the lightning hit just in front of them and knocked them over / out for a few seconds - they came too and ran for home. 

There was no burn marks, but Sam was shaking uncontrollably and Spence was complaining of a headache.  I called Paul and told him to come ASAP and Kelly to ask her if we should call 911 or take them to the hospital, etc - she suggested we call Healthlink and after 30 minutes on hold, she said take them to the hospital.  We all met there and the boys were there for almost 5 hours.  Sam was discharged from emergency and Spence was told to stay the night for observation.

James had come by while the boys were in emergency and then went home to take care of the dogs.  Spence and I were up every few hours with nurses and beeping machines.  Spence was released just before lunch and we went home to nap - we all had a good afternoon nap and then headed out for supper at Kinjo's.

Supper was good and we went to Memory Express for a wander and then Chapters for some drinks (Starbucks).  We went to get Karma and then home for the rest of the night.  Now to chill and relax for the rest of the night.

I managed to run a few errands after dropping off Karma and Spence getting up - then we did our math (more angles), spelling, printing, silent reading, history, drum practice and break for lunch.

While Spence had lunch at home and watched some videos, I headed downtown to meet with some friends and then headed back to get Spence for our movie.

We had enough time to have Spence practice a bit of driving - he's getting comfortable driving out of our driveway and out to the gravel road by our house and he's even getting better at braking (my whiplash is much better).  He starts driver's ed next week - hopefully that will give him some more confidence on the road.

Then we were off to see Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp and both decided it was a movie we could have watched at home.  Oh well, it was ok and we had the theatre all to ourselves.

I dropped Spence off at home after the show and headed to the climbing wall with James for my first climb since mid-March when I hurt my shoulder.  James and I only climbed for about 10 minutes, but it felt good to be on the wall again.  I hope my shoulder will be ok in the next few days and then I can go for 15 or 20 minutes on the easy walls :)

We both headed home and I got Karma and James went for a run, once we were both home it was time to make supper.  Spence had already started the water boiling, so the pasta and sauce took about 15 minutes to make and then we threw the chicken breast onto the grill.  Overall a pretty good supper - Spence had a cream sauce and James / I had a garlic & olive oil sauce on our pasta.

Well, James and I are still fighting this flu/cold we have.  I woke up sore, stiff and achy all over with a massive headache and James pretty much did the same.

We decided to relax and try and shake it - except for the rest of my front garden - which had to be done today.  I finished planting, put dishes in the dishwasher and took a nap.  James cleaned out his closet and chilled for a bit before taking a nap.

Once up from my nap, I made some bread and got a pecan babka going.  Waiting for the banana's to get ripe enough to make some more banana bread....maybe by mid-week.

We decided on scrounging for tonights dinner, so now just relaxing until Spence comes home from his sleep over / play with Jonathan.
