Reno project completed

We managed to get another little project done. Pastor Al and I (yes, that's not a misprint, "I", did make some contributions) finished the back steps.
back steps
Al did a nice job of designing them. Paula still needs to paint them. She's been busy painting the doors and trim on the front and those steps will be next. We also got the wallpaper upstairs put in and will be working on the downstairs bathroom next week. The summer of renos continue....

Getaway at Good Spirit

We had a great time last week at Good Spirit Lake. Days were filled with golf, beach, hiking,relaxing on the deck, cards and general fun. The mosquitoes also were part of the picture as well.
You can see all the pictures here. The highlights included the much talked about family races. After months of trash talking between Paula and Meredith, they finally proved once and for all who is the fastest. The video highlights the race as well as a typical "Brenda and Dad moment". This is a 3 minute excerpt from the full 8 minute video which chronicles the entire week. You'll have to contact me for the full version.

A break from Renovations

After completing Paula's sewing room, it's time for a break. We're heading off to Good Spirit Lake for a few days. We'll be meeting the Redpaths and my dad.
Paula is quite pleased with her new room. She did most of the work and I made some small contributions (you can click on the images for a larger photo).After we get back, we'll be tackling the front and back steps. I'll post some pictures and likely a short video from our getaway.

Me and Jayda and our Painting

Me and Jayda did it. We made a record. We played for six hours and didn't fight.

The pictures we did was me playing basketball and "I love Canada" with hearts.

Meredith's TV moment

For those who may have missed it, here's the video of Meredith's Canadian Idol performance. She had a terrific time in Toronto and knows a number of the finalists.

She continues to work her craft as she plays Fanny for the Tunnels of Moose Jaw shows. She has only six more weeks till she's off to Humber College to begin her Bachelor of Music degree. I'm still hoping she'll do some blogging. Working two jobs keeps her pretty busy and the free time is left to maintain her social life.

A Perfect Day at Buffalo Pound

It heated up here in Moose Jaw and so we headed for Buffalo Pound Provincial Park. We met Sheri and her girls and enjoyed an afternoon in the sun. Sam is at camp and Meredith was working so it was just Shea, Martha and her friend Jada. We barbequed and then headed over to another part of the part to watch Saskatchewan Express. Hansen's daughter Deborah sings in the group. This was the group Meredith sang with last year. This was close to a perfect day (not counting any day that includes golf). You can look at some pictures here. As well as a short video of the day.

Martha's life

I'm Martha. I'm six years old. I'm going into grade 2. I'm a Christian. I like to play basketball, swim, sing and draw. I'm working on a quilt with my mom. I'm drawing the pictures of my dog Rudy. I just got home from camp and it was fun but I got hurt one time.

Hey It Is Shea, the stupid one.

Hello Everyone who is reading this
I am Shea Shareski and my dad is making me write this and I don't even know what this is for. I am thirteen years old and I go to cornerstone christian school. I have more intelligence than a group of arangatangs. I like to create videos with my friends Annie, Amy, Kaylee and Megan. We do lots of stupid stuff together like dress up in army clothing and go around Moose Jaw doing hut calls.

In this picture I am the one who has the red dress on and my friend Annie is the one who is actually tan.

Happy Canada Day

What a great way to begin our summer holidays. A BBQ at Buchanans, great weather and Fireworks. Okay so the fireworks doesn't compare to Disney's but it's Moose Jaw for Pete's sake.

What is this?

I've decided to try and see if a family can work collaboratively on a blog. It may have been done before but we'll see. We are the Shareskis (left to right); Meredith, Dean, Martha, Paula, Shea and Rudy the dog.(not shown)

So as a way of introduction, I'll start...

I'm the Dad. We live in Moose Jaw, Sk and I work as a Consultant for the Moose Jaw School Division. There's lots more detail and you can find out more here. If you want to read my professional blog, feel free.

Okay, hopefully I can convince the others to post regularly.
