Hey everyone - sorry for the delay in posting. We've been having a busy week. Here's a brief catch up on what's been going on...
On Monday, Evelyn, Charissa, Fiona, and Kiwi got back from camp. They had a really wonderful time, and brought back lots of fun stories, craft projects, and massive piles of dirty laundry. The girls made some new friends, and had loads of great experiences. They can't wait to go back next year!
The rest of our summer activities are finished up now too. We had a lot of fun and learned a lot. Those of us who were not at sleep-away camp went camping and hiking in one of the provincial parks for two nights with Inna, Maia, and Summer last week, before the other girls got home. It was really fun too. We're glad to have everyone back together now, though.
Wednesday was Regatta Day, when the whole city closes down for boat races and we all go down to the lake to... well, in theory to watch. In reality, we go to eat, play carnival games, and hang out with friends. Our city's regatta is the oldest documented annual sporting event in North America. We went down for the afternoon. Even Clare got to come along because it was really overcast. We ate at our favourite food stall we get lunch at every year - the one run by the Hindu temple, where they serve awesome Indian food as a fundraiser. Then we played games, won some prizes, and walked around. (It turns out Bree is really talented at carnival games, which she had never mentioned the extent of before. Who knew! Bree is a woman of mystery, apparently.) We ate mooseburgers, chips/fries, and cotton candy for supper. It was a really good time all around.
Today Summer had another horse show, so we all went to cheer for her. It was raining hard, so some of the events got canceled and some got moved indoors for safety reasons, but Summer won a blue ribbon and a red one. Summer badly wants her own horse, but so far she's always just shown school horses. Maybe someday! Evelyn will start taking riding lessons soon too, so before long we'll probably be going to two people's horse shows.
I think that's the main news for now. Good to "see" our blog friends again, and sorry we've been too busy to write! We're back on track to blog regularly again now, so you'll be seeing more of us. :-)
