one teacher, one carpenter and a monkey in a pear tree!

Ahhh... Fall!

Greetings everyone...sorry for the long delay in updating the blog. We are just having too much with the wonderful Fall we are having this year.
It was such a busy summer with our trip to Europe, Joel's Ironman, Ronnie's visit, Anne's visit and Mirna and Jon's visit that we are just now taking the time to enjoy the Yukon again. This has been the most beautiful fall since we've been here.

A quick update: Our trip to Europe was great, even though our bags got stolen in Croatia! Joel completed another Ironman and still has the sunburn lines to prove it. Our deck, built by Ronnie, is still standing even though part of it had to be dismantled to retrieve the spooked cat. Claire has started her carpentry course and can now plane - We've already put in our order for end tables and new kitchen cabinets. I have almosted completed my first month of teaching grade one and I'm absolutely exhausted! These kids are demanding. We are busy planning our visit to Vancouver for Christmas and February break and we are very excited. The Canada Games are here in February/March so the schools get almost 3 weeks off and instead of volunteering for the games, we are planning our exit!

Will try to get some photos from our Europe trip and everyone's Yukon visit posted on our photo album website soon. Hope everyone is well!

Wow! Those are some beautiful colours there! I thought you said that you only ever get "yellow" in fall in the Yukon...

J. and I are VERY glad to hear that you will be in town for Christmas and, also, during February. Does the Christmas stint include New Year's Eve? *grin*

Please say "hello" to Claire from us. We promise to call one day soon. Incidently, is she still house-sitting?
