The Top Things 7 I Want to Accomplish This Week (in no particular order)

  1. Run 3 times. They don't have to be long runs, but I brought my runners home from school and I want to use them.
  2. Finish my marking and email parents from all 4 of my classes. This could take at least an afternoon, but it NEEDS to get done if I want to survive the first week back after the break.
  3. Start doing some photo and video editing on our computer. Along the same lines I also want to head to the future shop to purchase a larger external back-up (if anyone knows about Apple's Time Machine, I would love your opinion).
  4. Create Calder's yearly birthday book (I will preview it around his birthday - March 9, so you will have to wait in suspense until then to check it out).
  5. Update the photos in Calder's family photo album (I will post picks of this project once it's updated). I will have to order pictures from to do accomplish this.
  6. Do a family activity everyday. I am thinking skating, sledding, the zoo (again), the Western Development Museum, etc. (If you have any good ones, I would love to hear them).
  7. Shop for groceries and make some purchases on that long nagging list of "things" I never seem to get around to purchasing (like scrap booking paper and file folders).
  8. Probably the most important thing I want to do this week (even though I said "no particular order") is get Tripp's ashes from the funeral home. It's time.
What is on your to-do list this week?


  1. Tops on my list: book play date with Calder. Can we come visit tomorrow?????

  2. Something happening at Beaver Creek over the next couple of days , I think. Check Meewasin website.

  3. Thinking of you this week....
    In regards to apple time machine - LOVE IT! I have purchased two external hard drives that are the same (I got mine at Staples) - I'm not home so I forget the name, but I think it might have been verbatim. It really doesn't matter. Get one compatible with a mac and when you plug it in it doesn't take much to turn on time machine. I've had my computer crash once and the guy fixing it was very thankful I had a backup as he couldn't retrieve my files. When I plugged in the external hard drive it reloaded everything onto my new internal hard drive. The reason I bought two is I started to panic that if we ever had a fire (I know stupid) I would lose everything. So now I switch them on a monthly basis and keep the extra one at school in a filing cabinet.

  4. 1. Finish my licensing stuff for the Montessori (this one is driving me nuts...I hate paperwork)
    2. Watch the DVD on myofacial release the massage therapist lent me.
    2. Finish reading "The Four Agreements". Should get this one done tonight.
    3. Read through my Language Arts Manual.
    4. Go to bed early every night and get up at 6 to do yoga.
    5. Survive...yep, this one is big. Jaxen is breaking his top two teeth through and Emme and Jaiden have their musical this week (so three rehearsals and two performances equals 5 nights this week). Kevin just went back to work this AM, so I am on my own for the next two weeks. I still feel exhausted so need to go back to doctor too. This week is mostly about

  5. There is a model train exhibit at Lawson Mall - Will loved it!!!

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…


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…
