Just after midnight we returned home from our first trip to Tad Lake. We spent 7 days at our family cabin in the woods, had lots of fun, great weather and lots of memories made. I was a bit worried about the long drive with 4 young kids but it went really well.
I've heard "a picture is worth a thousand words" but pictures just don't capture the magic of this place. It is a wilderness paradise.
I don't have time to write a thousand words but I hope you can see some of the fun we had in these moments we have digitally captured.
Lots of outdoor fun and bike ridding.
Jonathan's first grouse (yummy)!

Today is David's first day of Grade 1 at his Community Class. He attends Community Class on Fridays throughout the school year and we are continuing to homeschool. We actually started school 2 weeks ago and everything is going well. Surprisingly he hasn't seemed to forget much over the summer so we have been able to skip over a lot of the review. He was excited to go to school today, although he expressed a little remorse over not being able to play with his sister. He was also a bit concerned that he might have a different teacher but he was happy to see that it was the same teacher as last year.
