Unfortunately,  this is how I spent Sunday (after the fair that is).  My back was bad, but the TV and Pepper kept me company.

Duke had another amazing day at school and Kincaid's was "fine".  I love looking out the back door to see them at recess.  They got haricuts today, but the picture I took doesn't do them justice.  Nam's friend does a fantastic job, but Kincaid was not enjoying it today.  He just wanted to get back to their massaging chair... 

(Duke wanted to leave his long in front so he can sweep it to one side...  I have to use some product on it though)

 Getting ready to head out the door to school! 
Duke was over the moon excited. 
 He stood in line, not even wanting me to stand with him.
 He was so happy to finally be going to school and with Mrs. Foyle (the same teacher Kincaid had)
Heading inside (he has the camo backpack).  Not one look back!  He had an amazing day.  He loved everything, played with friends and had so much fun!!!!

 I let Duke choose our adventures for the day.  First, we played soccer, battleship and uno.  We went for lunch at Arigato and then a bike ride to the Tudor Bridge with a stop to make leaf boats on the way home.  Good times!  He also found out that his Kindergarten teacher is the one that Kin had - he is super excited! 

 Here is Kincaid.  He wanted me to take his picture before school this morning.  I also took him fishing after school.  There were tons of fish and he caught this little smelt (baby salmon).  We released him unharmed.    There were also three Salmon that kept swimming around.  Thankfully, they really didn't want Kincaid's maggot.

As Duke says, only 2 more sleeps and then school (he starts on Wednesday).  This is an interesting difference as Kincaid was so fearful of school.  Duke is chomping at the bit to start.  I am so happy and excited for him.  He gets to make friends and be the same age level as those around him.  I can't wait to see what happens. 

We went to the library where Duke drove his cart around - filling it up with books and then making trades to end up with 5 (that is our limit - 5 books and one movie).  He two about the air force, one about tree frogs (which he read to me!), The Shy Salamander and an adult one about Big Foot.  He have never once strayed into the stories, only Non-Fiction for him. 

We then took a bike ride, berry picking, off road biking and stream wading expedition.  Quite fun!


 We ventured out to Birchwood for lunch with friends.  Of course, we had to go down to the inlet.  All of the other kids got muddy, but mine! 
 They did a lot of wrestling!
 Some foose ball playing!

There Dahlias are starting to bloom as well!

We got to sneak in a bit of fishing in the creek behind our house.  We saw a handful of bright red salmon, a rainbow, a goldenfin and some smolt.  Kin caught a nice 4 incher (maybe?)...

Pepper loved to swim!  It also makes her pull a lot less on the return back!
