Today was an exciting day in the McEachern household... Paige started her first day of Grade one! I'm not sure who was more excited, her or ME! We've been counting down for weeks now so it couldn't come soon enough. It was a lovely day, we met up with many friends that Paige made over the summer and found her new locker and desk... so exciting! It was like I was starting school myself, I even got up 2 hours before we had to go!! I know, I'm obnoxious sometimes.
We've had a busy summer- lots of playing, a little camping, visiting grandma & grandpa and some fishing! On our last camping trip Nolan learned to ride his bike without training wheels! I think he secretly taught himself because Ken took his training wheels on, held the back of his seat and the kid was off. End of story. It was amazing. He's been a little wobbly since then but still doing pretty great for a 3 year old! That kid is constantly blowing my mind!
For a couple weeks we had a guest staying with us, a 4 legged, hairy guest. If you are a Facebook friend of mine you may have heard of Jack (or Buddy as I call him), the Silky terrier. We found him stranded on the side of Highway 2. He was absolutely forlorn and his hair was long, filthy and fully dread locked. We cleaned him up and took him to the Vet, they gave him a clean bill of health so we went on trying to find him a home. We would have liked to have been able to keep him but we aren't set up for Piper just yet, never mind a new addition. My sister in law said she wanted him so we had him shipped by plane to Vancouver where she picked him up. The Travel really upset his delicate constitution and he got violently ill. After some vet care, I'm happy to report he's happy and doing great with his new family. He's a real sweetheart.
I lost my wallet a couple weeks ago- that sucks the big one. It's taken me a couple weeks to get most of my ID replaced. I've only got a couple more things to replace and i'll be back to where I was before except now I need a new wallet. I will be shooting my first (and probably only) wedding in a little more than a week. I'm pretty nervous about it but I'm going to do some research on poses and the like- then I'll pray for sunshine. It'll be an adventure... I hope.
Well I should head to bed- School starts early in the morning!
