I think I'm going to change my name

Just call me Cherie Ray. *LOL* We're off in a few minutes to see Billy Ray in concert, along with Collin Raye. He added the E just to be different ;)

It may be silly to some of you but this is my first real concert so I'm excited!

Now that was fast

Summer is over. At least for my youngest two, it is. I think we just need to wrap our minds around the new reality that they go to school year round. Okay, it's still summer but they go to school in the summer. Hmmm. This is going to take some wrapping!

First day was Monday and both girls did great. Christa loves loves loves having lunch at school, thank the Lord. I was worried that she would up and leave at lunchtime and start walking home ;) Oh, that reminds me that Matt did that when he was in K, didn't want to do handprints with paint so he left. He loves to tell that story.

So here's my two cuties. Guess what grades they're in!

Okay, now it's REALLY summer

Never mind that the temps have been in the 90s for a while now, never mind the smell of barbecues firing up daily all around the neighbourhood, never mind that the kids have been sleeping in every day. It's now summer because it's July. July was always the beginning for me, maybe because Canada Day is the first day of the month, I don't know. I just know that July and August are the two best months ever. Lots of sunny days, plenty of ice cream and burgers, fresh fruit and potato salad. Who could ask for more? Now this year I get to really celebrate the 4th, I'm looking forward to it. It's not the same watching fireworks on tv from the GWN, I'm sure. Hey, I even bought tshirts for all of us. Well, not for James as he refuses to wear one, says that the flag is not supposed to be on clothing. He's right but how do you stop it at this point? Let's just go with it :)

Happy Canada Day :)

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide, O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
