Regular Friday school day - quizzes, drums, printing and reading + Serpent's Shadow.  We cleaned up a bit and I finished the laundry finally.

James and Spence went out for a boys night to Cactus Club and then to Cross Iron Mills for new jeans for James and I had the pups with me for a big walk and then home to some spring rolls.

Tina came over after supper (she's here for a bit from England) for a visit - which was very nice and now it's time to go to bed after a busy day.

We did our easing back into school again today - math quiz, spelling, reading, drums, a bit of research and picking out a new essay topic.

Then it was time to grab some discount coupons at AMA for the movie theatre and to drop off my shoes for repair and then a bit of chore time before heading out to see Hotel Transylvania with Sam.

When we got home, it was time to get supper ready (hot dogs & fries).  James got home by 5pm and then headed back out for swim practice after supper.

Yesterday was a flurry of appointments and errands along with starting up a little bit of school again.  Orthodontist for Spencer and me (have to get braces - when the dentist can't get the floss between your crowded teeth, it may be time to get them fixed), then a new kennel and gentle leader for Karma - who decided that it was time to eat her old kennel and halter....oh well.  Then it was time to head to the Organic Store for some soy milk for me and finally time to come home and do some more unpacking and some chores.

Spence in the meantime finished up his math quiz, spelling quiz, drum practice and reading.  He's trying to decide on a new essay topic as well.

Today I let him sleep in - he got a solid 11 hours sleep and will probably be un-jet lagged now (he didn't seem to be as badly off as James and I), then he did his silent reading, printing and drums.  In the meantime, I was off at a client's and then picked up my new dress (in exchange for the sweater that tore after wearing it once) from Foreman's.  Got home early enough to do a few chores and relax a bit.

Tonight we meet up with grampa for dinner at Earl's and then hope to make it to 10:45 or 11pm tonight :)

All slowly recovering from jetlag.  James was up at 4am and I was up at 5, Spence was up by 6:30 and then again by 7am.  All super tired now - but trying not to nap and just go to sleep at a reasonable time.

Got groceries organized, making grilled chicken (without tonnes of oil or butter) and some roasted potato wedges for supper.

Also picking Karma up from daycare tonight :)

After a very, very long and bumpy ride we are finally home.  Jo'Anne was there to meet us at the airport, Hunter at the front door and now it's time to grab a bite and go to sleep
