10 on Tuesday

1. Jessica and the boys are arriving in Nova Scotia today! The last time she visited, Mya was just a baby...so, four years ago!

2. I made a rhubarb sour cream pie the other day. Turned out pretty yummy even though it didn't look like the picture.

3. Mya is done school for the year, Adam will be done on Friday and then it's Summer time! Yay! It would be a lot more exciting and we'd have a lot more planned if I wasn't going back to work for the summer but c'est la vie!

4. Our garden is looking good and things are actually growing! The spinach will be the first thing ready to harvest and we need to get something for the peas to grow on since we planted the vine kind (I didn't know there was another kind!). The hardest part is finding time to go out and weed it because of all the rain we've had lately.

5. Adam rigged up the hose at the top of the slide on the swing set the other day and the blew up our little pool and put it at the bottom of the slide. Homemade water slide! Thank God we have a daddy in our lives cause I know I wouldn't have come up with that. No wonder they don't want him to leave for work in the mornings.

6. Henry is FINALLY starting to really do well with sleeping. We've transitioned him to an afternoon nap now that Mya is done school and that gives him a slightly later bedtime which gives him a better wake up time too. Most nights he sleeps all night but on the rare occasion when he does wake up, it's usually just a quick song and back to bed.

7. The time has come to register Mya for ballet and it is taking a punch to our pocket book! My sister said it perfectly when she said "it's like hockey but for girls!"

8. Today is a scorcher: this afternoon is going to be 30 but feels like 37! I don't feel like I can complain though since we seem to have had nothing but rain and milder temperatures so far.

9. This year on Canada Day we're hoping Mya might be old enough to stay awake for the fireworks. It will be way past her bedtime but we think she'll enjoy it.

 10. I think we might take the kids to the splash pad in Hantsport again this year since Henry will be old enough to enjoy it. Last year he mostly slept and boobed but this year will be more fun.
