I seem unable to do one post per week anymore, but I guess that means we are busy doing better things than sitting at home in front of a computer, right? Well, not necessarily, as I use any "free" time I have to work on my parents house, but there have been some good times outside too.

A couple weeks back,
Jeff participated in the Sun Run, but he was so fast that he had already passed our place by the time we got down there. The boys had fun in the sun anyway.

I managed to get away for the long weekend to spend it with my sisters in Kamloops (Krista is judging there this week for the Gymnastics Championships, so we met her there), while Jeff did some bonding with his sons (and some driving around North Van to see where we want to live!). Jeff and I are currently in the process of trying to choose the better of 2 goods, and we're really not sure how to make the decision. All I know is that Callum is currently registered for 2 different Preschools and on the wait-list for 2 others, since who knows where we will be this September, and if I don't register now, he will be out-of-luck.

Working and Puking

I tried to get some concentrated work done on designing a house for my parents and my brother's family, so Callum and Max spent a lot of time at their grandparents in Langley. They slept over there from Monday to Thursday for the last 2 weeks while I worked, but it turns out that is way too hard on me - I missed them (and worried way too much about their eating and sleeping habits!)! I have come up with an alternative game plan, so we'll see how that goes over next little while.

I have to say, though, that I don't think Callum and Max missed me very much - they had cousins to play with, Aunt Samantha had crafty activities for them, Grandma had Jello and Ice cream to eat, and they love the big yard with a trampoline.

In the meantime, it seems like we've just been taking turns being sick. After Max got over his measles, he got the flu and passed it around to the rest of us. At least no one sick aat the same time so that I could handle all the extra laundry from all the vomit!

I never mentioned that Max got his 2nd top tooth while suffering with the measles - as you can see in this picture:
