Hannah’s First Cross Country Meet

Hannah is able to start competing in some school sports this year and she was excited to give cross country running a try.  She has always been a good runner so I was happy that she wanted to give this a try.  She only had one meet this year and unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend.  Thankfully a couple of other moms cheered Hannah on along with their girls and even snapped a few pictures for me.  Thanks Melanie and Elizabeth!

We’ve had an extremely hot fall so her team only had a few practices as a few were cancelled due to the heat.  It was over 40oC/104oF for most days over a 2 week period so it was just too hot for the kids to practice as their practices were mid-afternoon.

In spite of this, Hannah and the kids at her school did great!  Waiting for her team shirt.


Ready to run!


And she’s off!  They tell me she was in there somewhere! Smile


The next time they caught sight of the girls my girl was leading the heat of over 150 girls!



Unfortunately her strong start came back to cause her trouble when she got a cramp so stopped to walk it out.  She fell well back in the group but still enjoyed her run.  Strong finish!


I’m hoping she give cross country a try again next year.  Time will tell.  What I am excited for her to try is some track & field events but unfortunately that will need to wait until next year as they don’t start track & field until Grade 4.

Great run Hannah!  Mommy is so proud of you and you did great!!

Apple Picking 2017

This weekend we enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration with family and friends.  Saturday we enjoyed a turkey dinner with family at my parents.

Sunday afternoon we met up with friends to enjoy apple picking.  This is an annual tradition that Hannah and I look forward to each fall and the weather this year was absolutely amazing! 


Hannah with her friend R and her little brother K.  The girls were in grade 1 together and are excited to be in grade 3 together now. 


The kids’ mom Melanie and I enjoy hanging out together too, especially when we’re at the gym each week while the girls are at their gymnastics class. 


Hannah lost her final front tooth earlier that morning.  It changes her smile so much and suddenly she’s looking so much more grown up. *sigh!*  Too fast!!


At home we made our traditional apple crisp.  A yummy treat each year.  I enjoy spending special times with my little baking buddy!
