Be Bike Riding in -10 degrees Celsuis

We’ve had a few hurdles to overcome lately! Do you get that impression?

One of our barriers to jump over has been our cars. More than once in the last few months, I have left my interior light on which has cause my battery to die. Just over a month ago, right before my mom’s surgery in Vancouver, my husband was in a car accident.

This morning we woke up with my husband’s car leaking fluid, probably related to the accident. He then was planning on taking my car, but my car had a dead battery! With stealth speed and a positive attitude, he managed to maneuver his car into position, jump my car and then get to work! Whew!

This left me to first bike ride JC to school, then down the other way to CC’s preschool and now back home. We will do everything in reverse in about an hour.

We did it all with a smile on our faces in the -10° weather.

Here are the boys ready to go:

Here I am on the path to CC’s preschool. CC and OC are in the chariot bike trailer.

All I could thing about as I rode was mom’s words as she walked out of the hospital yesterday and she breathed in the cool crisp air: “ahhhh, that feels good!” I agree Mom!

Be Missing School

Last Wednesday, JC woke up with a bit of a fever, I kept him home!

It was a PJ, truck playing, leaf gathering, door jam hanging, hockey equipment wrestling kind of day.

Today, Nana is getting sprung from the hospital so we are going for a visit.

When deciding on what to do, I often ask myself, “When (insert name of son) is eighteen years old, is this going to matter?”.

A whole day with his brothers and now a day with Nana and Papa, yup these days matter! Sorry school!
