After we hit a few parks and about 1000 mud puddles (Brooke found everyone) we thought posing for pictures for everyone to see would be a great idea. Well okay it was just my idea but what were the kids gonna do I was driving! Spending time together has really started to take priority. We are a family living in the same house but we all seem to have separate lives! There is a long list of thing's that I hate about Fort McMurray but the one thing that I love is that as a family we are so much closer! Because there is so many people out here that are just here to work it is nice to know that the community tries really hard to focus on kids and activities for them throughout the whole year. Where in Ontario kids are now preparing for March break here in Alberta the kids have spring break and it is not until April. Their break co insides with Easter so they have a 2 week break hopefully winter is finally over and the kids and I can enjoy each other and the great outdoors. Fort McMurray has beautiful scenery which makes living here a little more peaceful.
I think in hind sight moving to Fort McMurray is one of the smartest thing's we have done! Every night Dave comes home not every two weeks, my sweet girl Sienna has made a lot of friends and her self esteem is soaring which is what we had hope never mind the fact that at school she is doing wonderful and we couldn't be more proud of her despite her pre-teen attitude. Sienna is growing up and it is a pleasure to watch.
As for Brooke well what do you say hmmmmm ....... well she is six, spoiled, kind hearted and beautiful but she is still quite a handful! This last illness has really make her a different child. We still have not many answers as to why her belly pain was so bad but none the less she is Brooke and life would not be as wonderful without her! Seth came home from school today quite upset apparently there is a girl in his class Emma who feels that his chose of girlfriends is wrong so she is making spending time with Paige difficult for him! Oh to be nine again and all the turmoil that goes along with it! We talked and he feels better but all I could think about when we were talking is "I wish I had stress and problems like that" ode to be a child again! If we could go back in time with the knowledge I now have WOW the thing's I could have done!
