What have we been up to?

It's been a busy few weeks around here, and it doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon. Here 's a pictorial history of what's been keeping us busy:
Grade 3-6 Science Center Trip:

This was a fascinating exhibit, as you can see

Down the escalator

Grade 3/4 workshop. They are deducing what kind of animal their skull is from.

Now that they know what it is, what does it eat?

Scaring each other in the dark cave.
Natalie trying on the baseball helmets. Grade 7/8 played in a tournament last Saturday. They didn't win any games, but played well as a team, an had fun. And that's what counts.

Had a visit with my newest nephew, baby Benjamin.
Proud big brother Caleb.
And since it's getting to be summery, we have to have pretty toes. These belong to Deanna and Natalie.
Upcoming events include:
Grandparents Day
London Church 50th Anniversary celebrations
CCS Yard Sale
Track & Field
Tim goes to Ottawa
by then we'll be good and ready for camping!

Mother's Day

I hope all you Mom's had a lovely day yesterday, even if the weather was not ideal. Snow in May???
Deanna and a friend had been plotting most of the week, they were determined to make tea for us moms. So we had the B family over for dinner last night. Deanna and Olivia helped with dinner (they wanted to cook the entire meal, but.... they're not quite ready for that yet). They peeled all the potatoes, and mashed them when they were cooked.
After church, they served tea and chocolates to the adults.
The piece de resistance was the special dessert they had planned (they got the idea from a tea party book Deanna got from Grandma):
Ice Cream tea! Ice cream in cups and saucers, with chocolate sauce and sprinkles for "cream" and "sugar". The teeny teapot holds butterscotch sauce. It was nice to be "treated" by these two...
Here they are scooping out ice cream for the rest of the kids after serving us our special "tea".
Or eating all the sprinkles....
