You know you're tired when...

Jacqueline is home with me and Natalie from Monday to wednesday and on those days she doesn't nap. Today, after a long walk, she went to the bathroom while I was feeding Natalie. Things were pretty silent for a while so I went to check on her and this is how I found her

Red sky at night...

Beautiful sky after a very odd day of weather. It started with sun showers while Jacqueline and I were walking Natalie on Queen street, followed by a major downpour we got caught in on the way up our street (luckily i had the rain cover for the stroller and an umbrella with me!). it cleared again, hot and sunny, only to be followed by another surprise major downpour around 5:30 pm - so much rain that Hugo wasn't sure that he would be able to make it through the don valley on his bike there was so much standing water. it's not too often we are treated to such a colorful sky at sunset in the city

Coon! Coon!!

according to Jacqueline, anyway.

We found this cute little guy in our neighbor's tree yesterday evening.

Or maybe not so cute.....

Perhaps vicious.....

Oh...wait....no, he's cute:

(Note: he was actually yawning, but those fangs sure make him look evil!)

Jacqueline's favorite color at the moment is yellow ('el-low" as she calls it). When it's time to go out, she heads for the coat rack, reaches for this raincoat of Christian's, saying "el-low....el-low." Do you want to wear that?, we ask... "Mm-hmmm"

from Sea Turtle to Salamander

After a few rounds of not-so-successful swimming lessons with Parks and Rec, we decided to enrol Christian in private lessons this time. He was in a class with one other 5 year old boy, and they both did amazingly! In prior classes, he was very timid in the water and unwilling to do most of the activities...No more! I guess the timing was right because this time he eagerly did everything the instructor asked, and was rewarded tonight with his Sea Turtle certificate. Next up, Salamander!
