We decided to put both kids into swimming lessons this year and so for the past two weeks we have been at the pool every morning. Today was the last day of classes and they both passed their Level 1 (hooray!). Thanks McKenna!

We had so much fun at the Coaldale Candy parade! We had our family, Shauna's, Melissa's, Mindy's, and Rachel's all sitting together. Roger was a few blocks away (we're going to have to coordinate better next year!) The kids had a blast playing with their cousins.

|The other three born in the same year. Sarah, Zach and Bryan|

We made our annual pilgrimage to the Raymond parade this morning and sat with Roger & Trisha (and all her extended family). The kids had fun playing with their cousins. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough room for Shauna's and Mindy's families, so they were across the road from us.

When I took Ben to the dentist for a check up last week they found an abscessed tooth! He'd had work on that tooth before and it wasn't bugging him at all, but we were told the tooth had to be pulled. Thankfully, it was a baby tooth! So, today was the day. I was more nervous than Ben was!
He had a couple other cavities that had to be filled first and they were worse than the tooth being pulled. Once the tooth was pulled they had to put in a spacer too so that the other teeth wouldn't move into the space.
Update: The tooth fairy remembered to come and brought him 20 dimes! We know because Emma got up nice and early, snuck in to Ben's room to look and then sat and counted them out! She then woke Ben up so that he could see! Ha! Ha! The more coins the more money... right?!

There was a free event tonight at the community garden where they were planting 150 trees for Canada's 150th. The kids each got to plant a tree and label a stick with their name by their tree. As the trees grow, they will eventually be transplanted all around the Town.

Emma was SO excited for her last day of school. Ben and I walked her to school so that I could get a picture with her and her teacher.
It's so hard to believe that she's going in to Grade 2 already. She is so incredibly smart and I love seeing her love for learning. We already have plans for 'homework' all summer!
