A couple of us from my course did a little sightseeing this weekend and headed out to Peggy’s Cove. It was a picturesque little fishing village.

    Away and unplugged

      According to Jason, Isasc is doing really well and his finger is healing fine. He’s down to a simple band-aid on the injured finger.

    I am away at the moment in shearwater Nova Scotia on a course. Things are going well but without t.v or internet access I’m feeling a little unplugged.

    I’ll catch up with everyone when I return home end Sept.

    My son, the statistic.

    Yep, yesterday Isaac helped feed the statistics of escalator injuries in young children; and he wasn’t even wearing crocs.  We were in the Victoria Airport waiting for our delayed flight when he got his finger stuck in the escalator. He needed stitches so West Jet pulled our bags and told us they’d accomodate us in anyway we needed. We headed to the hospital and he needed four stitches. We got back to airport about five minutes before they started to preboard for the next (and last) flight to Winnipeg for the day. Thankfully, the kind West Jet folk already had our boarding tickets printed and has given them to Trudy (Jason’s mom) who was flying with us. We walked through securtiy and onto the plane. Considering the drama of the day, it went rather smoothly in that we still made it home on Saturday, giving my one full day at home before I head to Nova Scotia for the next three weeks.  Isaac is doing really well and his hand doesn’t seem to be bothering him too much. Only having one usable hand (the other is bandaged right up to keep him for picking at it) has slowed him down a little, but really not that much.

    Enjoying the BC sunshine

    We’ve been all over the place between the mainland, Salt Spring, Lake Cowichan and Duncan and back again, but we’re having a great vacation and great weather. Certain little boys could certainly be sleeping better, but hey we’ve been dragging him all over the place and switching beds every three to four nights, so I think over all he’s doing pretty well. Pictures to come later, for now I’m off to go enjoy the sun.
