Perfect season!

Way to go Bad News Bears, we did it!!!!  What an exciting championship game!  Started off a little rusty, but we did our thing and climbed right back and took the win!  We had a big crowd with lots of cheers, so of course we couldn’t let them down!  Already looking forward to next season!Mommy’s biggest fan!Dad taught me everything I know about baseball…even how to play with the boys!Jackie and I – just like old times – we played together about 12 years ago for the Guelph Gators!David caught the “itch” and is trying out for a Kitchener men’s baseball league next yearMore fans! Jenn and her “clan”Daddy and Annika cheering us on!Andrew pitching – team coachBad News Bears – CHAMPIONS!

We’re in!!!!!!!

WOW what a whirlwind the past four days have been.  We’re not quite settled yet…that’ll take a few more weeks…but it sure is nice to finally be living here!  We’ve had such incredible help over the past four days – James and I owe my dad & mom, brother & Jenn, Uncle Roy and Nissim a lifetime of thanks!!  They were all breaking their backs lifting and hauling all of our stuff all weekend!  THANK-YOU SO MUCH GUYS!!!!!Happily, I’m still standing and Little Loaring is still kicking!  Lots of fatigue and a sore back, but nothing that won’t go away in a few days!Here are some pics of rooms that are almost complete!Over the threshold!dining room (thanks to my uncle, we have our light fixtures up and our dishwasher and washer dryer working!)Annika’s breakfast nookKitchenKitchenFront door/hall (thanks to my dad, we have almost all of our blinds and drapes up!)Annika’s and I’s officeMaster bedroomMaster bedroomAnd….tonight’s the championship game for my ball team!  We’ve had a great sea…

4 sleeps!

It’s so close, it’s hard to believe!  During our last “walkthrough” on Friday with the site supervisor, it was hard for me to actually realize that I was walking through “our house.”  Even after the 100+ visits James and I have done over the course of the last 10 months, I’m still trying to visualize our life in the house.  It’s still feels like it’s too good to be true….The keys are handed to us at 2pm on Thursday…..from that point on I know I will finally feel that it’s “our” house.Of course our amazingly wonderful family have so graciously offered to help with the move.  We couldn’t do it without them….James and I are not what you would call “handy.”  I try to be, but usually end up with either something broken or something done completely wrong.  I’ve learned my lesson to call my dad before attempting anything that requires measurements or electric tools :D  James is quite happy that I’ve learned this valuable lesson!So, we anticipate this week to be a little on the chaotic side. …

Windsor weekend

BJAMS had a nice weekend in Windsor….we arrived Friday night and had a visit with friends, Saturday included watched the kids triathlon (that Annika will be participating in next year!), relaxing indoors out of the heat in the afternoon and then Spago’s for diner (one of my favourite Italian restaurants!); and Sunday was the Tecumseh Tri, which unfortunately Annika and I missed because we didn’t have a car to get there, but everyone raced very well, Char was top female age group winner, Sean Bechtel was overall winner and Christine Jeffreys was overall female winner!  LPC had a big contingent racing and all had great races too!  That pretty much wraps up the triathlon season for BJAMS.  Now into new house-mode, and then wedding-mode – Evie’s wedding is coming up quick on Sep 17th and Rob’s wedding Oct 10th!  Looking to be a really great fall and winter for us – especially since we’ll be in our NEW HOME!!!!!!!!on a walk with uncle down riverside’s walkwaypre-race dinner at Spago’s!show…
