Asa the chef

We haven’t posted anything for a while, but here’s a quick pic from today. Asa helped me make green beans and cauliflower, cook salmon, and make oatmeal cookies!

That’s really some rock!

Emmet has been reading about musical instruments and is way into electric guitars. He even got to play Yoni’s electric guitar recently. 

Here are two guitars he drew: on the bottom is an electric guitar that can switch between rock and pop music. On the top is the loudest instrument in the world. The very large number indicates how many loudnesses it goes. As the caption says, “that’s really some rock!”

And School Begins!

For now, school is in-person, 5 days/week. It's going to be a strange rollercoaster of a year, no doubt. 


5th grade!

1st grade!

Emmet was so excited to go to school that he - unbeknownst to us - got into his clothes late at night and we found him like this in the morning. 

Final Trip of the Summer

So grateful to Chris for filling our summer with adventures across BC and Alberta. Our last camping trip was to Tofino - the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island - and it was pretty glorious. The first half of the trip was socked in by fog; when the fog lifted, it was awesome. Because of Covid, the majority of the public parking lots were closed - so the only folks on the beach were from our campground. It was incredible to hike for hours and hours down an endless beach and to see only a few people throughout the whole day. Bear and wolf tracks and scat! The most 'wild' and unpopulated beach I have ever been on. 

Day 1 - tidepools, exploring the foggy beaches

Wolf tracks? Bear tracks? Definitely bear scat. 

Day 2 - at first, a very foggy day (and check out those bizarre pelagic goose barnacles!)

And then, the fog lifts!

Final evening - gorgeous sunset

Sun kissed, beach smiles
