We had an exciting weekend at the Silver Wave film festival this year. Harrison had some of his films shown at the youth screening, along with a movie that the boys did with their film camp this summer. Also the boys acted in a film called "The Editor", which won the Viewer's Choice award. Harrison was given a surprise award for "Emerging Young Filmmaker", which was a great honour- we were so proud of him!
This year I decided to have a Halloween party for the boys. They each invited some friends and we had a blast decorating the house with the most gruesome things we could imagine. The boys did a "haunted treehouse", complete with a chainsaw-wielding maniac, and we had a "Fear Factor Trick-or-Treat" game that involved eating some really disgusting items.
This was a landmark year for our family, as Rachel started school. No more little ones at home- a big change for Mom!
Here are the oldest three on their first day. They really were happy about starting school, although this picture seems to indicate otherwise!
The ground is covered in snow today- seems like a good time to look back at our summer. We really had a wonderful summer, which began with our vacation in Ontario. Then there were days at the beach, (also a lake, a pond, and a creek), a parade, family camp, and whale watching. Can't wait for next year!
