Cai Draws

Amazingly Cai - at only just over 19 months - already knows a lot of shapes : circle, oval, square, rectangle, triangle, diamond, cross, trapazoid, hexagon and star. (He calls a crescent a moon !). His latest "party trick" is to name the shapes as you draw them for him on a white board or piece of paper.

The other day he got hold of a - fortunately washable - marker and decided to practise his own circle drawing on the wall in the kitchen !! He was so proud of himself and definitely impossible to get mad at him !!

He now has his own drawing stand and has learnt that that is the proper place to do his scribbling !

Home in Spruce Grove

Here are some photos of the house we moved into in Spruce Grove. These taken a few days ago after a little snow fall - our first of the season. The house is about 15 years old and a four-level split so each level has its own character.

Views from the street - we're on the corner of a small crescent and it is a quiet neighbourhood

The back yard is small (perfect for the gardener i.e. Gordon !) and well fenced so perfect for Cai
It includes a Mountain Ash tree which - as you can see - is beautifully laden with berries this year
