Really Good Stuff!!

We got Dustin's marks in the mail and he passed! He is SO happy and SO relieved. It's a big deal because he was So nervous. He seriously thought he did bad. He always second guesses himself, but I knew he would pass. I didn't doubt him for a second! Now he goes back at the end of August for another year. (Well 2 months) and then one more time after that, probably in April, and he'll have his ticket. But he has to have a certain amount of hours between his last two years of schooling before he can actually get his ticket. Then life will be awesome! AND I CAN BUY A HOUSE!!!!!! (hopefully) I just want space and a yard, and a playroom for the kids! Nothing too big, because I don't want to clean it. Actually i'll just hire someone, really I will. I'm so that person who would. I think. It shouldn't be too expensive, it'll only be around 600 thousand for starter family home up here. ha "only." The wages up here make up for it and it's doable!

So Congrats hun!! Love ya!!

We are heading South for the July long weekend. Kind of a last minute plan but we are excited. Dustin has 5 days off and we wanted to do something fun for it. Why don't people travel and visit more often?? I thought about it the other day. All you have to do is drive there! So just go! The kids get so big so fast, so why not!

Plus I really want to see Britt pregnant before she has the baby. I wish Kristy lived closer so I could see her too. I'm super thankful for Skype for that reason! Last time we were both pregnant at the same time. We both announced at Christmas and didn't see each other until after we had the babies, so it's weird I have never seen her pregnant. I think it's so fun to be pregnant with a sibling though, or even an in-law because then they will be close cousins forever. I loved having cousins close to my age. I see Kyla and Emma together and they are best friends. I love that.

Anyways that's my news for this week. Have a good weekend, and Happy Canada Day! (on Thursday)

Congrats on Dustin passing. I totally know the feeling, and it's such a relief to find out! And I agree about the travelling thing, obviously since we are never here. But I think it's usually worth it to just go, and the kids always love it. Have a fun trip!
