I owe I owe...

Ok, I know it. I owe a LOT of posts here. Life got BUSY! Hot hot hot and busy busy busy!

In the next week, JAC leaves for Vancouver and passport renewal and job interview in Victoria. Hopefully he comes back on Friday! Beca leaves Sunday for CAMP! SLEEPAWAY camp (! It's scary, but she seems very ready for it. I think, if she can make a pal of 2 there, that she'll have a BLAST! If she doesn't, it's potential for disaster. So we'll see. Hopefully she gets a wonderful counselor!

Wednesday is the 4th of July, Russ will come back into town then and we'll (he, me and Ori) go to the fireworks downtown. FUN!

Yes, Russ Bonney is in town! Hard to believe, but it's great to see him. He seems to have mellowed a bit. I think Jan really spoiled him, and Donna helped him to see that. And he also had a run of crap luck at GE, so he's job searching. But honestly, he's one of THE most employable men I've ever met! So I don't think that'll be an issue. So he will go fishing sometime this week, and maybe Mary and Bob will help him out with a place to stay for a night or two later in the week.

Then we pick up Beca on Saturday, and Sunday we get Russ, and Monday it all starts again!!! Then it's one week till BLAST OFF!

We found out we CAN'T take Terry to the GOTV w/out an RV pass (which we COULD HAVE but DIDN'T purchase when we got our tix). So we'll have to make it from Regina/Winnipeg to HOME in 4 days, and then Friday or Sat. head over to GOTV. Not sure what's up w/Jackie and Mike as far as the tickets go...maybe we can't get in till Saturday??? Still to work all that out.

Beca's birthday was loooong, but FUN! We did a class celebration before the end of school which was fun - we got a cookie cake - same as for my birthday - and the kids really enjoyed that. Ori was a DOLL. Then her graduation - he gave her a rose in front of EVERYONE! I was SO impressed! He did great, and she looked stunning. Radiant. She makes me proud! Then her birthday party for the neighborhood kids - James and Merishka, Laura and Natalie. It was sweet. Liana came the next day with Jackie (SURPRISE!) and we met Sarah and Bridge at the chinese food place in Hanaford plaza, although Bridge (who bought a new house! YAY!!!) didn't stay, and then went to see Nancy Drew. It was FUN! Dropped off Sarah, had a sleepover. And Beca's Birthday was finally, truly over. PHEW! Actually, we had Bella over later that week - Thursday and Friday actually - so the party didn't truly end till THEN. My kid sure knows how to manifest a LOOOONG Birthday Celebration!

Ok, so now I'm pretty caught up and it's time for me to go WRITE. I have about an hour left of ME time. Russ and Jerry are watching the kids, and fiing Russ's Volks, and who knows what all else, and hopefully Beca is cleaning her room (the pit of no return!). I really do NOT want to look at it the way it is for a week w/out her being around to hollar at! HAHA!

No pics for the moment, but I'll try later to add some. Or maybe during the week...

YAY!!! Lots of excitement about the Mboy arriving! The post carrier actually rang our bell! He was as excited as I was lol! I admit to hounding him just a little lol! The Mboy included beautiful chocolate brown yarn, lots of pretty stationary, a matching pen, a matching metal box (read: new manifesting box!), essential oil, soap, and cream all of lavender. :D I am SO SPOILED!

And here's Ori with his new animals:

Oh my - I downloaded over 100 pics from my camera tonight (teaches me to lose that USB cord!), and there is just a TON to catch up on here!

Firstly, tonight was the bridging ceremony for our Service Unit. Karen and Geryldene did an awesome job on it - the kids all felt really wonderful and it went very smoothly! I didn't get a lot of great pics, but I did get this one of Beca, taken actually after the event (and the ice cream is down by her feet lol!). Our littl ebrownie is now a JUNIOR Scout, all in green. ;)

Next, WE GOT THE TRAILER! I gotta say, this is the biggest thing (after Africa) I've ever consciously manifested. I know that I did this one, I was VERY specific about what we needed and what we could pay. This fell right into our lap, I'm happy to say!

And still to report on is Beca's new bike! She actually won this is a raffle drawing at the Tulip Festival. It's too small for her, really. We ordered a 26" bike, and somehow a 20" arrived, but she loves it just the same. :D That's my kiddo! She is so awesome that way - that kinda stuff just does NOT bother her. YAY!

Lastly, for this post, THE PARADE! Well, the story behind the parade is this:

I rode my bike there, Ori in the seat on the back. He was a GREAT passenger. He was into the parade. We manifested some bubbles, which kept him well entertained for the 20 min. or so before the parade actually arrived. We were about 1/2 way along the route. We shared a nice shady square of grass along Adams Place with two other young families. Lots of little kids. Two girls to our left, two boys to our right. NICE! The parade came. Lots of marchers, music, and a bit of mayhem. It came in fits and starts, which was a bit discombobulating. Hard to know how fast to take pictures! Ori was in total awe. I tried to put him into the ergo on my back, but he'd have none of it. He was standing nicely, so I didn't push it.

JAC and Beca came marching by, and by the time I got my camera up and on, they had marched right past! I dashed up a few families to snap a shot, which I got lol!, and zipped right back to the sidelines. Ori. Was. Gone. My vision blurred. It was a mad dash into and through the parade looking with mama-ray vision. No Ori. I snagged Jerry, and he came back with me. We both looked, he on one side, me on the other. No Ori. I ran up to the corner to the cop there, the goofball in the neon orange vest, I should say, and told him I'd lost my toddler. His jaw dropped. His eyes popped. He didn't know WHAT to say! Just that moment, a nice daddy looking guy came waltzing over with....ORI!!! He was FINE. Not a tear in site, the kid was just FINE. I cried. I sobbed. I downright blubbered. JAC steered me away from the parade, and the cop, and I blubbered in peace. It was, otherwise, an awesome parade.

Some gratuitous pics for you:

So that gets me nearly up to date! Whoohoo!
