The World Of Way Website !!!

Hi People,

I know that some of you check out this site to see what we are up to, but in light of the big family trip coming up we have a family website.

This site will tell you about our trip and you can keep in touch with us while we are away. There are a few blogs posted there about our Vaccanations, etc.. and also a map of where we are going and when.

Thanks for your interest and see you on the new site.

Rebecca and I were at 7-11 this afternoon. By the checkout was a package of something that looked like it could be candies. It was called TowTabs. Rebecca was looking at it when the clerk pointed out that they were towels. We had to buy some to try them out. They are a small hard cylindrical shaped tablet. You add 1/2 ounce of water and it expands. You unroll it and you have a small towel for washing your hands and face or wiping things up. It was so cool that I am sending Shawn back to 7-11 to get some more to put in our backpacks for our trip.

STUFF! STUFF! STUFF! (getting ready for the trip)

Hi People,

Well it is not long now until we get ready for our big adventure, and in preparation for the trip we decided we needed to do some clean up in our storage area under the stairs. It is amazing how much stuff you accumulate in a storage area in 9 years.

We started to pull everything out so we could go through it, you know, keep the good, toss the bad, and donate the rest. Well we piled everything up in the basement and let me tell you that was scary. It was crazy how much stuff (and what kind of stuff) was in there. Everything from little baby shoes to an actual bag of garbage.

We decided to take some before and after pictures, because they say seeing is believing. Here are some pictures of how our basement looked like after we pulled everything out and then after everything was sorted.



Amazing, I really do have a floor in my basement :-)

Well I guess that is step one complete.

Check out our NEW family website ! It is going to be dedicated to our world tour for now, so come on by and see what we are up to.

Today was the YP Band Garage Sale. This was a fund raiser for the exchange trip with the Grand-Falls Windsor YP Band. When all is said and done and added up and expenses paid, we should clear about $4,500. This is well beyond our wildest expectations. Thank you so much to everyone who donated items, helped organize and price all week, helped sell today and carry things around and do pick ups from people and to everyone who came and bought (especially those who paid more than the asking price!!!) You know who you are and you are all amazing!!! Here are some pictures of our very successful event.

New Post

Well, I have got to be the world's worst blogger. It just seems that nothing of any interest is going on or else I am so busy with things going on that I don't have time to write a new post. I am going to try and do better. This weekend we are getting ready for back to school. Thankfully (and for the first time ever) I did the back to school shopping back in July!!! Yesterday, my mom and I went to the farmers market in St. Albert and then out for lunch at Brewsters. It was a really nice time. Then in the evening, Shawn and I, Krystal, Rebecca and my parents went to Symphony under the Sky. It is the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra playing in the park. Their guests were the Arrogant Worms. If you have never heard the Arrogant Worms, I recommend that you pick up one of their CD's. They are hilariously funny. It was a great time. For anyone who was there, we were in the Mini Donu section.
