Eckhart the Mouse Hunt in Charlottetown

One thing I am trying to do with my kids to explore the place we actually live. It is so easy to never go to the places that are right around us. And also, it is a good way for me to have things to recommend for visitors to do, since we have done them ourselves. 

So, yesterday afternoon, the kids and I did the Eckhart in the City Mousehunt in Charlottetown. And it was such a fun little activity to do with the kids and walk around Charlottetown. Joash was able to read the clues to find each one and with a little direction and help from mom, they spotted all 9 Eckhart statues around town. We took pictures with every Eckhart and some turned out better than others.
First one! It was a lovely, sunny day as you can tell.

Here he is! (A little blurry. Sorry)

One of the Eckhart statues was in a construction zone. We thought is was so nice they put a little window in the fence around the construction zone so you could still see Eckhart.

He is up there!

Mataya almost sat on him here.

This Eckhart has a little piece of cheese in his hand.

We spotted this one too!

Here is another one!

The final Eckhart! I put Gideon in the picture since he went on the hunt too.
We also did a stop at the library since we were right by it, and the kids enjoyed picking out a few books to borrow. It was a fun afternoon in downtown Charlottetown.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.

Summer Vacation 2017

This was supposed to be the first of probably a few post about our wonderful family vacation in Michigan with my parents and sisters.

Instead it is a post about our vacation, on PEI. The kids at home with Oma, Opa, Tante Reina and Wilbert. Wilbert home with the kids or visiting me...at the hospital.

At 4 am on the morning of July 15th, instead of going to the airport to fly to Michigan with the kids, Wilbert and I drove to the hospital where I was soon admitted and fast tracked to have my gall bladder removed.

A little bit of background. I have been struggling for a while with random bouts of pain in my abdomen and back. Back in October of 2016, I did go the ER with this pain. At that time, the doctor determined I was having esophageal spasms, a surprisingly common thing for a woman who had a baby 5 or 6 month ago. After my time in the ER, I did not have any further issues until April of this year.

In April, I had 10 of these episodes in 20 days. Most often they would last for 30 minu…
