An Old Time Adventure

Posted by Picasa

The Fort Adventure

Here we are at a Fort in our area. It was a beautiful sunny day and Justin decided on a whim that he needed to show us around. So we packed a picnic lunch, as we often do, and hopped in the car and were off for an old time adventure. The Fort was amazing. There is still one of the oldest building there from the original Fort in it's authentic white wash. The boys ofcourse had an agenda...The Black Smith's Shop. They wanted to make a "J" hook. So we went over and learned about making nails...LOL! More to come on that later...da da daaaa!
So we panned for gold. Checked out some of the way the explores would have lived. Went to a Wedding (play) and learned how the Natives married the soldiers and why. We learned that women are the reason The Hudson Bay Company started and that without us the fort and it's men would have never survived. The boys barrel races, and carried bails. We checked out the Big House and then back to the Black Smith were, YES! The boy actually got to make there very own "J" hook. With a little help from the Smithess...and for a trade of fruit snacks they got to keep it and bring it home. What could be any better!

Adam's Guitar (Gr. 6)

I love the sound of an acoustic guitar. Adam has started to play. He is quite good and has a very powerful strum, which makes a very beautiful sound. I love how the sound echos down the hall and down the stairs to where I am sitting at the kitchen table having my tea.
I see how he is getting confident in his playing and in himself. He is learning to play "Have a Nice Day" by Jon Bon Jovi. Can you imagine...with all the artists out there today he loves U2 and Bon Jovi. Truely classic artists for my husband and I. I enjoy watching him play so much I forget to grab my camera and get him in action. There are just somethings you have to see with you own two eyes and not just through the lense of the camera. I am very proud of Adam's playing and how excited he is to go to his music teachers house. Adam can't wait to get an electric guitar...we'll see:o) It has be so intersting watching his come into his own thing this year. How he is changing into this little man. Getting ready for middle school...YIKES! So for know I will relish in the echoing sounds of guitar in my house and smile at the way he brings music to my heart. I love you my Adam!

13 yrs

I was looking back at all my pics and was thinking of all the wonderful memories I have...WE have. My husband and I are celebrating our 13 yr of marriage this month. A lot of people "oooo...13", but I say, "Ya! Wahoo!.." . 13 is my lucky number and I am loving being married and having a family and sharing my life. It's been a heck of a ride and a whirl wind for sure, but I wouldn't change a thing. My husband loves me more than you could ever know and I love him just the same.
The picture on the right was taken on one of our many outdoor adventures. Jay found this stone and carved our intials into it and placed it on this stump. I love it! It reminds of a poem he once wrote me..."Roses are red, Violets are blue, it's official between me and you" and he signed it " I-L-Y". Which ment I love Y..yellow, yogurt, whatever started with Y. Only because we had just started dating and thought how could I love someone this much so early, but it is what it is and it has lasted for 13+ yrs and I justed wanted to take a moment and cherish my hubby. I Love You! With all my heart, for all my life....ALWAYS.
