The next big thing that happened was that Josh graduated high school. He worked hard for this and has grown up so much this past year. We got him a pocket watch to mark the occasion. Josh is going back for a victory lap, then who knows? The future is yours for the taking buddy. Way to Go. xo
Charlie had his tenth birthday this summer. Our littlest man is not so little anymore. We celebrated his birthday with a Glow in the Dark party at home. I was worried that it was going to be a wash out, but the rain stopped and the boys were able to launch water bottle rockets and have scooter races outside. They also had a photo booth, a Nerf Gun fight, pizza and cake. I was happy to hear a couple of boys saying that it was the best party ever as they left.
Once school was out it was time for our annual family camping trip. This year we went to Silent Lake Provincial Park. It was a beautiful park. I especially loved being back on the Canadian Shield. It reminded me of my childhood at Leonard Lake.
There has been so much change this year. Charlie is the big kid now and the big kids are on the verge of adulthood. Josh has graduated high school and has a part time job, Kenzie has moved into residence at Fanshawe College. Things are changing faster than I'd like to admit. Both John and I are proud of where our kids are going and a little sad that this magical time with them is coming to an end.
