Beep's Graduation, A Very Proud Grama.

Our granddaughter (Beep) B(etter)K(nown)A(s) Bree,
  graduated from grade 8 last night.
Quite a milestone in all our lives.
The graduate...

Beep with her friends before the grad ceremony.
I have know these "kids" since they were in kindergarten.
She won two awards!
No one in the family knew about them, nor did she, so the photos were snapped very quickly when her name was announced and she walked across the stage.

The first award was "General Proficiency Award"
presented to the student who makes the most complete contribution to the whole life of the school, by participation in all aspects of school life, academics, social and school activities.

The second award was "Art History".
She won the Art History award citywide back in May, for her project on the Canadian artist Tom Thomson.  Oral presentation,  board display, and her original acrylic painting of her interpretation of Thomson's "Jack Pine"
 Beep and her best friend, Sid (who also won an award).
Two delightful young women, embarking on the next stage of their lives...high school!
How bittersweet!
Am I a proud grandma, you bet'cha!

Summer 2018

It's hot in the city.
Temps soaring to 44C, that's 111F.

We are escaping to Northern Ontario, (Pine Lake) about 6 hours north of us, where the temps are least 10 degrees cooler.

Beep and I will swim, paddle board, and paint, while hubbers (papa) will fish, for pike, bass and muskie.

Also planned, canoe trips, kayaking, hiking, and yoga on the dock!

It's a wonderful life!
