Emily’s Last Day of Grade One


At the year-end assembly, high-five awards were given out to kids who especially demonstrate the 5 parts of their school motto; safe, caring, respectful, responsible, and good learners. Emily was awarded the most caring student in Grade one.

Here she is with some of her fellow classmate recipients:

It was the final day for Mountain View Elementary, originally opened as a high school in 1915. It’s on to the brand new school next year!

A Brave Girl


Emily had some rather major dental surgery yesterday. Here is the result:
She is doing amazingly well; happily playing today with only a little Ibruprofen. Kids are amazing!!

Trampoline fun


Using the trampoline can make your hair pretty full of static.

Sports Day 2012


Emily school holds sports day at the beginning of June every year. It starts off with a running race for the younger kids. Here’s Emily having a great run.

Emily did really well in the relay event too.



While I was in Vancouver, Simon took the girls out boating just south of Revelstoke, to Upper Arrow Lake. On a good day the view down there is spectacular.

They had a little lunch break onshore.

The place where they stopped used to be the townsite of Arrowhead, and there is evidence of habitation all around. When the Columbia River was dammed in Castlegar in the 50’s this area became flooded. The forget-me-nots remain:

ALS Walk-a-thon


I travelled to Vancouver for an ALS walk-a-thon which was held in Steveson. The weather turned out to be beautiful, a bluebird day, and the route of the walk was very scenic along the water’s edge overlooking Vancouver Island. There was a good turnout, possibly about 300 people. Pictured is the “warm-up exercises”.

The main reason I attended this event was that my step-sister, Sylvia, who was an Olympic athlete in freestyle skiing, presented the ALS Society of British Columbia with a check for $5000, on behalf of RBC. In this photo L to R are: Wendy from ALS BC, me, Sylvia, and Wally Buono, coach of the BC Lions and ALS BC spokesperson.

Thanks to the organizers, volunteers, Sylvia, and RBC for this event and donation which goes to support and research for persons with ALS.

While in Vancouver I had a chance to watch and meet some of Canada’s wheelchair basketball team. They were on a week-long training camp and I visited with my high-school friend, Brett, who is the team physiotherapist.
