The End of an Era

We gave our trampoline away today. 

I felt a little bit sad.

I think it is repressed sorrow from when I found out my parents gave our trampoline away....when I was away at university. 

We had a lot of fun on trampolines in our house! Our kids really haven't jumped on it much for a couple years though and I am ready to do something different with our back yard. The trampoline pretty much took up half our yard. I always worried about neighbourhood kids jumping on it and getting hurt (and us getting sued). We probably should have had one of those fancy no springs, big net safer ones.

Nah!! You can't jump off the deck onto the trampoline if there is a net!
(Oh my shattered nerves!)

I am sure, wherever it is going, it will be well loved.

Might as Well!

Jill has never been a big fan of homework. However, in grade 12 it has become apparent that it doesn't matter if she is a fan or not. It has to be done. 

She has decided that it is best to do homework in beautiful places. Starbucks. Trendy restaurants. Devonian Gardens....they are perfect candidates for homework.

This is her studying at the new and trendy and very cool Simmons building.

Why didn't I think of that when I was a student?!
