We're having a great start to fall - it was almost 30 today.  I took Karma for a jog and then puttered around a bit before heading out to get a few items for our trip.  James had curling with the Corp Challenge in the morning and was back by the time I was back from errands and Spence spent his time chilling and painting his paintball gun.

James managed to head out to the deck and get some sun - I'm going to try that tomorrow.

Yesterday was the museum and then some errands - today was all about doing our Friday light school and then it was time to take out the bike - Spence rode his bike around the neighbourhood, train Karms a bit and paint his paintball gun.

Not a big few days....it'll be perogies tonight for supper.

Yesterday Spence slept in and when he got up, he did his school work and then rested for the rest of the day.  Today he was still having tummy issues and we got some imodium, which fixed him up quickly.  We finished school - math, reading, drums, spelling, essay, history and then we got ready to have lunch at Cactus Club with Amy and her boys.

Fantastic lunch and then we headed home to check on Karma - she was in the kennel.  We called Kelly & Sam and they headed over for a visit.  James is off for another Corp Challenge tonight and so Spence and I ate some more out of freezer/pantry/fridge - starting our next vacation sweep of food :)

Had a resty day - James took a flex day from work and Spence did a light day for school.  He started by having breakfast and then watched Through the Wormhole, then silent reading, spelling, printing, math and drums.

We headed off to Memory Express to get me more ram for my laptop and James a new mouse.  We made double stuffed potatoes for supper - James relaxed, Spence played with his friends and I managed to watch some TV.

It was a lovely day again today, although a bit cooler.  Karma still had a bit of an upset tummy (threw up grass again) and then decided I needed to get up at 7am...so up we got, went for our walk and had breakfast by 8.  She let me nap until 8:30 and then it was time to get up.  I managed to stay up and start on supper - veggie chicken ala king tonight.  Made the mushroom sauce and let it simmer for a few hours, fried up the veggie chicken and took the puff pastry to thaw.

By the time I finished, Spence was up and we made some lunch (brkfst for Spence) and I got ready to go get James from the airport.  He was flying in from Quebec City where he was at a conference.  On my way there, as I was driving into the arrivals area a border patrol cop hit a bus in front of me.  He had his brakes on and slid through the intersection - and he was going maybe 20 or 30k/h - real slow.  Even going that slow, he spun around and took the entire bumper off the back of the bus.  I picked up James once I gave my info to the cop and we got home safe & sound.

James had been up over 36 hours and decided he needed a flex day tomorrow, so we'll do our Friday school tomorrow and chill as a family.    He rested for most of the day, Spence chilled playing online with his buds and the dogs and I chilled as well.
