A Special Place

On the occasion of the election of President Obama, The Girl’s high school, under the leadership of a creative and caring educator, produced this video. Not in America. In Toronto.

A special place and a special time. A reason to hope.

Giving Thanks 2012

July 1st

Camera on the blink. I find I do not reach for the other camera the same way I  do with my own. So an entire evening of photo opportunities. Poof.

Captured the gang headed down to the school yard to watch the totally amazing community fireworks.

Also Tim went out last week and bought a flag pole and a flag.  In this neighbourhood flags are hung for Canada Day.

PicMonkey now has a collage function. Happy. Happy. Happy.

We are dog sitting for the weekend. Clover is her name. They are a team.
