Christmas Letter

Sorry it’s later than planned but here’s a link to our 2012 Christmas letter.


Olympic dilemma

So the past few days have thrown up an interesting dilemma in our house. Who to support during the Olympics – Canada or Team GB?

Let’s take the easy part of the question first. When there is only Canada or Team GB it is easy, we can support the country being represented. However it becomes […]

The Rideau Canal

Just back from two weeks on the Rideau Canal in a houseboat. The canal goes between Kingston and Ottawa, linking a series of lakes and rivers to make what was intended to be an alternative supply route for the English in the early 1800s, save from those maurauding Americans (trying to take over Canada and […]

It’s Official!

Last week we heard that we’d been accepted for permanent residency, but still had a load of paperwork to complete and get sent off to Buffalo in the US for the final checks to be made. Yesterday we finally received everything we needed. However, in order to complete the process and get our permanent resident […]

3 years on

Three years ago today we headed for the airport and flew to start our adventure in Montreal. I don’t think any of us really knew how it would work out, and there was a fair bit of trepidation as we landed.

On Lac St Louis, 5 mins from home

So much has happened, so […]

I saw a Moose!! I saw a Moose!!

So sang Sophie after she saw her first Moose (after 2 and a half years of trying). And she didn’t sing it just once but for a full 20 minutes so happy was she!

Anyway we had a successful weekend in Algonquin, saw a number of Moose, a snapping turtle, Doug got to head out […]

Sunny Acres

So Sophie and I have been going to Sunny Acres now for 2 weeks. We are in the dolphins 1 and are having a great time. We have really nice counsellors (called Erica and Kayla) and a really fun schedule that is:

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Dance Tennis Wall Climbing Drama Dance Basketball Karate […]

The bear necessities

So school’s out for the summer, and the girls have just finished their first week of summer camp, loving every minute of it. So much so that Millie came home on Wednesday night and asked to go to bed, as she was so tired after all the activities.

School ended on the Wednesday lunchtime, and […]

A good start to summer

Well it’s been blue skies and over 25 degrees for the past couple of weeks, it’s been great. It is so nice driving alongside the lake each morning, makes you think that all’s well in the world. That said the lake is so much lower than normal it is starting to affect ships passing through […]
