Yesterday was a basic school day for Spence, I did a bit of work and helped Dave a bit and he worked on the cabinet stuff.

Today is soccer, a bit of driving, english and possibly fencing.  Dave is continuing to work on the cabinet and I'll help a bit and work a bit.

Yesterday we had a baking day at our place.  Paige, Emily, Taylor & Spence all baked some breads - sourdough, regular bread and cinnamon bread.  The kids all brought their own doughs that they had started making the day before and then we finished them off here - learning about steaming, spraying, oven settings, etc.

Everyone went home with a loaf and the cinnamon bread was eaten right away.

While the kids waited, they played magic and Paula and I watched How To Train a Dragon over and over again.  Spence swears I've seen it before, but I don't remember ever seeing it, so Paula lent me her copy.

Jacob came over after school and played magic with the kids and then they all headed off to Mac's for a treat and by the time they had played a few hands of magic, James had arrived to take Spence out for the night.

Paula and the kids hung out a bit more, so that traffic would lighten up and then they left as well.

In the meantime, I popped out with Karma to take her to the vet and it looks as if she has a bit of a bladder infection as she nipped the doc when her tummy was palpitated....so we'll probably get meds for her today.

Dave headed out to work, then grabbed some stuff we needed and we didn't get going on the entertainment centre till about 7pm.  I was of actual use last night as I was able to pull cables - but that's about all I was useful for.  I tried cutting a hole, but I cannot cut a straight line to save my life, so I was told to go earn some money and I went and did a bit of work before deciding to call it a night as I was reading the same lines over and over again.

Yesterday was PE, cleaning up a bit and driving for Spence.  Today we have a baking class that I'm putting on.  A few of the teens wanted to know how to bake bread, so we thought it might be fun to do it at one place - so we have about four of them in total (including Spence) and they'll be baking bread from about lunch to five.  The house should smell great.

Dave continues to slug through my entertainment centre - hoping we'll have actual cabinets made in a day or two - electrical has now taken 3 days instead of 2 hours....the joys of building it yourself.

Tonight Spence is off with his dad and Dave and I will continue working on the entertainment centre.

Today is a regular school day for Spence - mainly English 30 and essay stuff as he has started to study in ernest for the exam in January.  We also have his annual exam at the doctors and otherwise, he's going to relax.

Dave has a job to do at a Cactus Club and then he's back to work on the house.

I've got some work that needs to be done and then I'm also working on the house.

Today is a busy day - went to get Spence from Jonathan's and since they didn't sleep all night, he's off to bed now.

Dave did a bunch of work last night and this morning, then we headed off to Home Depot for a few more supplies and now he's off for a 2 hr nap before we start cutting the wood for the entertainment centre.

Once Spence is up, he's going to finish off the desk he started - Dave put the hinges on for him, but he'll have to actually put it all together now.

I'm going to do a bit of work and chores while Dave sleeps and then it'll be time to help him out.
