This is our deck. He said he brushed piles of hail the new patio furniture.
This is one of my gardens, now mulched with hail. Some of the other plants didn't fare as well. The veggies are flattened. Hopefully they will bounce back.
We bought Connor a unicycle for Christmas 2006. He had asked for one and I would much rather encourage a physical activity than say Nintendo so that was his big present. He tried unicycling along the deck railing and down the halls Christmas day but really hasn't tried since. Well, he got himself grounded (a regular occurrence) for not calling us and leaving the house when we were in Peterborough at Alec's convocation. For an hour and a half we had no idea where he was and there really wasn't much we could do since we were 2 1/2 hours away. So he was really bored this weekend at home and pulled out the unicycle. He can go pretty far now after only 3 or 4 days of practice. He came with me when I walked the dogs tonight - about 4 or 5 blocks. He built a teeter-totter out of a brick and a piece of plywood at the construction down the road and practiced on that too. Next stop - a circus!
With his proud parents. Can you tell he hates hugging? I was pleased to get a good picture of Kevin and Alec. You rarely get anything other than a mug shot from either of them.
The Men in Black, Cyberspace defenders. Of the 72 who started the CSI program (Computer Security and Investigations) 3 years ago, only 24 graduated. We are proud of Alec and his friends. Why do I feel like listening to the Arrogant Worms "The guy with computer know-how" now?
This was however a bittersweet day. Caitlin graduated last year and went out to Jasper for 6 months very shortly thereafter. So none of us attended her graduation ceremony or got to see her recieve the Equine Spirit Award.
