Markus won a championship and dissected an owl pellet in the same week. He is on the top of the World.
He is Mr. Goalie-pads
Trev and Owie have been doing a lot of reading and art.
Chris: I have a lot of songs in my head.
Owen: If you mix them all together, you’ll get one big song called life.
We have had a very nice winter so far. Markus got serious about hockey and skating. He is playing defence and trying out playing the net. He is super motivated
With Trevor and Owen I have been going xcountry skiing. Chris and Markus join us when they can.
Though we usually go to the lovely trails near Kanata, I have been taking them to ski to cabins in the Gatineau park.
They are not terribly enthused about it, but usually do enjoy the experience.
This October we enjoyed a lovely vacation from our base camp in Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré.
Close to Quebec City where St Lawrence widens into the ocean, we enjoyed both hikes and the feeling of being at the sea. Owen run up Mont Sainte-Anne and Trevor carefully inspected every cargo ship on the horizon.
It has been summer around our house and things have been absolutely crazy (in a good way).
Here are some fun things we have done…
The boys had a Lego car race. This is Trevor’s report: “Today we had are first weekly V6 race for me I sadly lost my tire and got eliminated Markus won p.s. the Balb Guy is Markus the robot is me and the guy in the jacket is Owen”
The winner, Markus, got to wear the victory suit
I don’t know if they had any more car races but they did build a big boat.
Meanwhile, Markus is all about making ridiculous statements.
M: Oh, new Chirp magazine! Ages 3 to 6. If I get any older I am doomed.
I don’t even want to have a birthday, I just want to continue reading Chirp
C: “Screen time has been proven to ruin children”…
T: I resent that!
M: I reject that! Even though I never actually married it….
