Saskatoon Teachers Gather

Teachers are on strike.  Do I even need to write that?  It is all over the news, radio, and social networking sites.  This morning a number of Saskatoon Teachers got together and walked along the river.  It was great to feel a sense of community and support from the 100's of teachers from dozens of schools who came out.
 We were at the middle of this particular "pack" of teachers.  We saw other teachers walking on the other side of the river, walking the opposite direction of us and some doing community service by picking garbage.
 A wonderful teacher volunteered to take a picture of us.  We turned Calder around so that he would be in the shot, but she completely cut him out!
You can also check our Hugh and I walking on THIS blog.  Calder's face is blocked by the chariot, so he is still not in the shot!

Tomorrow, Abbey and Billy are going to look after Calder so that Hugh and I can head to the Legislature Building in Regina to show our support of our bargaining committee and the thousands of other teachers in Saskatchewan.

  2. I hope you gather some public support and that the government takes notice!
    Children are our most valuable resource and they need great teachers just like you two!
    Good Luck.

  3. Jordan - you must be doing well with your training - you look absolutely BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING!

    Hugh - you are looking good too - I guess lol! Great job on the play center for Calder. You have inspired my live in carpenter to build and create for Reid'd 3rd birthday.

    Thank you for heading out to the legislature and for supporting all teachers. I wish I were attending as well.

Nicknames

All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…
