Can you believe September is over already! Wow time flies by, the kids are growing up way too fast.

We have been busy....
B is back into hockey full swing, school is going, he's got a great teacher and I have great hope for a good year for him. He enjoyed going to a couple pre-season Canucks games and loves seeing his friends again. Baby I loved the hockey game and the hot dogs!!
S is doing really well right now. Baby I is doing well also. She is a very busy little girl, she got her first bite from one of her little buddies. She didn't know what happened to her, she was very mad and upset poor little one!

We were on Hornby Island for a few days and thought this was a very cool bike rack!! We spent some time exploring the beach, and B and I enjoyed watcing the Deer's wondering around while we were in the hot-tub. We had some issues with S's G-tube breaking and realized how tiny of an island Hornby is!! Our friend came to Hornby for a day with her girls which was great. We hadn't seen each other for a long time, the kids loved the hot tub.
We visited the market in Coombswhere the goats live on the roof. Baby I really liked seeing many different animals while we were gone; deer, goats and cayote's!! B loved the market in Coombs- he found a 2nd hand book store. I couldn't believe how great his reading has gotten, S really enjoyed B reading to him!

We will be heading back to Hornby for a few days coming up, the kids are going to camp again this year with Canuck place in Squamish and lots of appointments is whats coming for us in October....

WoW is really the words I have for STEL.

CONGRATULATIONS and we are so VERY Proud of you!!!

Well its been a long day but a very good day. Stel is tired but did great.

The race went really well..... Stel did the kayaking on his own so was slower than the double kayaks, but somehow passed most people during the biking. The run got changed to 9.8 km from the 8 but he is a Champion! We spent the day at the park cheering him on during the transitions and played. After 10 hours in Deep Cove we are happy to be home. If you press the little play button that is stel coming into the finish... videoA huge huge THANK YOU to Everyone for your support. Stel was able to surpass his goal for monies for Canuck Place thank You.We will add some more pictures when we get them

Tonight is the final sleep before school starts...

Stel has 5 more sleeps until the Canuck Place Adventure Challenge. He feels about as ready as he can be, Saturday morning he went for his final bike training up the mountain.

We had lots of fun camping at Golden Ears Provincial Park. Stel left us there Friday evening and so he could go to training and returned later Saturday afternoon. The kids had lots of fun. B enjoyed cutting the wood and he and I enjoyed playing games in the evenings after S and I were sleeping. He loves exploring and climbing around in the woods as well as some swimming in the lake. S enjoyed his time as well and of course loved the 4 wheel driving. Baby I did very well except with the walking on the road. She loved the lights!!!She had fun on the beach and talking to every dog in the campground!! We were prepared for any weather this time so a little rain didn't affect us and we had a great time. The tent clean-up... getting all the air out!

S got the coolest new thing.... It's called the I-Gallop. I am not able to post video for some reason but it looks weird but way too cool. It is exactly like riding a horse, is actually meant for adults as a core and abs exerciser but is awesome for S. He used to ride horses but they wouldn't let him once he became dependant on oxygen and he is doing so well on it. B loves it and both Stel and I have tried it and it really is like riding a horse and Baby I will tolerate it for short times if we hold her hands.

We will let you know next week how the triathlon goes. Thank you so very much to everyone who has sponsored Stel.
