Summer's End

M&I had a couple weekends to ourselves.
Now that the boys are home they need to get used to getting up early before school. 
One was happier about this than the other.

Fight and Flight

Last Friday night E had another exhibition fight.
That's twice he's stepped in the ring and he definitely likes it.
 
We were all pretty tired the next morning when it was time to get them to the airport.
Off they went for a trip to Manitoba.
After dropping off the boys, and a little nap, M and I were off to Kngston for the weekend.
We did cleaning stations, no surprise there, and took care of a nasty wasp nest that we found under the back seats.
And, thanks to some friendly marina people who offered to accompany us, we got out for a sail.

Another Sail Day

The boat requires some effort so while one person is steering, the other people can rest.
Of course, there's no rest for a sailing dog. Always on guard.

Barefoots On a Boat

We were very fortunate to have the previous owner of the boat take us out today and teach us 1 or 2 things about sailing. 
So, that's 2 things down ..... and about 1,000 things left to learn. Haha.
To our great surprise the dog took to boating ... though he's been napping since we got home.

Long Weekend

We decided to head south and spend the second half of the long weekend in M's town.
So, of course, we went to Fort Henry. 
A and are thinking we could use the picture of the ingredients to make our own gun powder. Homeschool Project!
One of the places we always go in Kingston is Card's Bakery.
Best. Sandwiches. Ever. (Not to mention the cookies.)
And .... I finished M's quilt. Now he has a cozy cover to remind him of home.

1st Fight

He first started going to the club a little more than 9 months ago.

Since he joined the competitive training group he's been itching to get in the ring.
After tonight's exhibition match .... he wants to get right back in there.

To and Fro

After a wild couple of hours at the wave pool with friends it was time for some ice cream. 
That left just enough time to make some pizzas to eat on the way to boxing.
Then, back to our end of the city to watch the NBoys play soccer.

Mowing Random Style

I struggled deciding on a title for this post ...
How NOT to Mow the Lawn.
When You Ask a 12 Year Old to Mow.
Straight Lines are Hard.
10 Minutes. 15 Stops. 1 Mowed Lawn.
