Lego Discovery Center

This weekend my family and Grandma Braden went on a visit to the LEGO discovery centre in Toronto.  Cole and Essy had a blast, but I was more exited to go to the West 49 shop beside it with Grandma.

Essy chilling with her friends.

1st annual recital

To our lovely piano teacher, Susanna:

The kids sounded amazing today and it is because of you, Susanna.  You have been such a diligent and careful teacher with the boys, and with Essy.  Gabe and Cole have really improved their musicality and I noticed it even when I was playing a bit today: Susanna voice: “Is this your best sound?”  I am so very very grateful you were willing to take us on.  

Christ has given you such gifts: a gentle, sweet and tender spirit, hospitality, incredible musical blessings, grace and poise and fortitude.  We love you to bits.

Thank you, Seth, for your amazing recitation and poetry reading - I see a future poet laureate....

Auntie Lekis - mom post

I really do have the best sister I could pray for.  Alexis is long-suffering, patient, hospitable, gentle and generous to me and to my kids.   I love her to pieces.  I do wish she would age a bit faster.  It's a bit irritating.
