Last night we went to Fareway's fundraiser for muscular dystrophy. It was a bowling eevent and we brought Jayne because the other couple on our team was bringing their 1 year old. Jayne had such a blast! He loved feeling the air on his face and pointing at all the vending machines. We even let him take a few shots and his first one was a STRIKE!Adam and I each won a doorprize, so we came home with 2 brand new basketballs. Jayne was pretty happy about those too. We really had a nice night together as a family.

Unfortunately Jayne was sick and throwing up all day today : ( I snuggled with him on the couch all day long and that seemed to comfort him a lot. We finally got him off to bed and his fever is going down. Hopfully by tomorrow he will be almost as good as new.
Here are some pics from bowling...

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
