Happy Canada Day
We aren't leaving until tomorrow morning, so we can wish you all a special holiday tomorrow. I hear the weather hasn't been the best, with huge wind storms in Manitoba, and rain in Ontario... probably it's perfect in BC! The wind is gale force today, knocking down a few little trees in the yard. The possums were skittering around on the roof last night, blown back and forth by the wind. The door was rattling in its frame, much to Nicole's distress.
We've celebrated my birthday, got the car fixed (starter motor burned out ... boo), removed a "nyle" (nail) from the tyre and fixed that, found an orthodontist to remove Kai's loose retainer, and now we're ready to go tomorrow morning. On to Adelaide, perhaps stopping in the Barossa Valley tomorrow evening. Sounds good wine lovers? Then on to Alice Springs on Saturday morning. Love these school hols! We're loaded up on talking books, ipods are charged, I've decreed when we're stopping for coffee, and we've got some good driving tunes courtesy of Top Gear Australia ... what more is there?
Maple leaf bickies were provided for classmates, the crossing guard at the school, neighbours, and us! Enjoy your celebrations in Canada.
