1 more sleep till school....

Summer holidays are officially over tonight.... back to the morning routine - oh no!!!
Summer has been ok, really felt wrong without Sebastian with everything we were doing. We didn't do nearly as much as we usually did but I think it was ok with the kids. Isabelle talks constantly about Sebastian and death. Its been 32 1/2 weeks....
Stel's race is just a short 5 sleeps away.... sure hope he is feeling ready!

For the long weekend we took the kids camping out past Princeton in the tiny town of Coalmont on a very rustic forestry campsite... yup a lot more nature than i am used to when camping!!! exploring the ghost town of granite city the last full standing building left... Quite interesting for Bentley looking around what is left o f an old city. Saw the very old cemetary and the read about the Madam of the ghost town. Bentley ding some Gold Panning along the riverIsabelle enjoying some fishing...Stealing a brownie!!!Up at the Coal Mines Fossil Hunting up at the minesThey found s whole bunch of fossils - had a great time digging around and finding amazing fossils.
