Gaelan and her family left on September 3rd to drive from Sparrow Lake, ON to Moncton, New Brunswick where their first home awaited them. The trip itself was pretty uneventful but they enjoyed the scenery and eating in parking lots. On day three arrived safe and sound. The moving van arrived the next day but they had Winnie’s bed and a mattress delivered earlier in the week.
After checking out the new house the family took a 20 drive to the ocean where Winnie was in fine form.
On their first day in the new home Winnie lost another tooth.
On Wednesday Winnie started her first day of school in a new school in grade one.
After a wonderful first day of meeting new kids Winnie came home and promptly fell off a bed and bit through her upper lip. Another first was the trip to the hospital where luckily it was determined that she wouldn’t need stitches, just a steri-strip.
Winnie returned to school on Thursday and had quite the story to tell her new classmates. A special thanks to Winnie’s parents for the wonderful photographs.
This week has been an emotional roller coaster. Our youngest daughter and her family have moved to their new home in Moncton, New Brunswick. We are very excited for them because they are home owners for the the first time but also sad because they are so far away (over 1500 kilometres away).
Kevin has continued staying busy with his weekly drawings so I couldn’t not post them.
