Go Lions Go

The day that Kai has been eagerly awaiting finally arrived today!  He was able to go to the BC Lions game.  He has actually been twice before.  Once when he was 18 months old and we made it to the half.  Last year he started vomiting on the skytrain on the way to the game and continued to be sick so they didn't make it through the game.  Today, although he had a cold, he was good to go!

Gary and I are so blessed to have all of our family living in the Lower Mainland.  Although having 32 family members (his side and mine) can be busy with birthdays and anniversary's seemingly happening every week, it is a good thing as there is a lot of love and support for our kids and us.  We are thankful...most of the time :) 

Gary, his two brothers, his dad, and 6 of the 10 kids all went to the game.  The Lions won and fun was had by all.  I think.  I wasn't there.  Koen knows he can go when he's 5.  He had a football game with his stuffies while watching the game on tv.  He is so sweet.  We also had about 137 cuddles.  He is a great cuddler.

{Mackie, don't be too excited!  Mackie is more into dancing than football so not too sure how she felt about it all..}

Aside from the game, today was a bit crazy.  Nya woke up with a fever and covered in a crazy rash, head to toe.  I took her to three clinics and found one that would be open at 10 am.  I had to babysit in the church nursery so Gary stayed home with her and took her to the doctor.  She has a virus that is apparently going around.  Poor girl.  She is very, very tired, with a slight fever and a bad rash.   No other symptoms which is good.  She should be better in a few more days.  She doesn't look so friendly does she?  Poor babes.

I hope you had a great weekend!  This is so random but I painted my nails a fun sparkly pink and it makes me happy.  Simple things:)

As Kai would say, `good' is not an appropriate word for grade 2 as it's so boring so maybe use `spectacular' or `amazing' instead so......I hope you have a spectacular week!

Love, Louise


  1. Glad the Lions won and that Kai got through the whole game! Mackie dances at the studio we're at; i was trying to decide why she looked so familiar and then I saw you say she was a dancer and it clicked :)
    Hope Nya gets better quickly!

  2. Kai probably enjoyed a special outing with his big cousins! How exciting for him. I hope that Nya is feeling better soon.
