Sunday Best

We never made it to church today, between knowing the girls have been napping even earlier and are desperately in need still of two naps (and will NOT fall asleep on us) and a flat tire we never made it.
However, the girls still got to wear their Sunday best - I would be more than OK to let them run around in their pj tops and cloth diapers but my husband loves when they are dressed up really cute - so here they are today in their Sunday Best!

Aboiteau Beach - Cap-Pele

We were lucky enough to get to go to the Cabins of Aboiteau in Cap-Pele again for an Executive work retreat for Adam and the family.  Adam was in meetings during the days so I decided to bring my mother with me to help with the girls at the beach as I knew I would not be able to run in two directions and I certainly did not want to miss the opportunity to spend some time at the beach with the girls - their first real experience at the beach.  They certainly did love it and watching them play and splash and giggle as they fell over in the little waves trying to get their balance was so much fun!  They were excellent little girls who were really on their best behaviour for which all of us were ever so grateful!  My only complaint about the place - and I mean only, is that where our cabins were at the beach entrance only had stairs going down to it and no ramp for us to take the wagon down without having to unload the girls and carry the wagon down!

Here are some photos to prove how much fun we had!

CHAT to the Future

I mentioned a little in a previous post about CHAT to the Future!

My husband has been working hard with Gerald in Uganda to provide shelter, food, medicine and a school to these 130 orphans and has been doing such a great job and working so hard for such a great cause.  I thought I would share with you a little video from the news last week and hope that everyone will join the facebook group and support such a great cause in any way you are able to.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

It is hard to believe how fast 2 years have gone by and how much has happened to change my life in the past two years.  Adam and I were talking about all the changes and honestly, as happy as we are, it feels like 5 or even 10 years should have gone by with all the big changes which took place.

I know most women say how lucky they are to be married to the man they call their husband, and I am no exception.  I have been so blessed to be married to Adam!   He truly has one of the kindest and caring souls of anyone I know.  Honestly he himself has no idea of how great he is as a person which I suppose makes him even better!  I truly married the perfect person - for ME!  He puts up with me - honestly it is true, some days he really does have to just put up with me, and he does it because he loves me!  I have never doubted the fact that my husband loves me not one day so far in our short two year marriage.  I truly hope I can say the same thing 5, 10, 20 even 40 years from now!

So to Adam, my best friend, my laughing partner, a father supreme, my love, my true North Thank you, and I love you!  Happy Anniversary!

What I Have Been Up To!

I have been a total blog slacker these past few weeks and well I have no other excuse except I am lazy and do not really feel like I did anything all that excited to post about except last week, so I am posting now bullet form!

= Hanging out with these sweet girlies




= Adam went to Edmonton for 4 nights for a Canadian Teacher Conference and I had PLENTY of these girls, but I love them!

= Went to Denver for a Scentsy Convention = oh it was CRAZY over 6000 people together under one roof all who love Scentsy and work for Scentsy... it was seriously nuts but a lot of fun!  I got to spend some great time with my sister Amie  and meet some great new people and get to know some on my team even better.  The trip was not without drama and sometimes I will never figure out why people choose to be the way they are but I had a wonderful time and had lots of laughs and am VERY excited for the new Scentsy Products coming out in September!

= We also held an event at our home on Monday August 2nd for CHAT to the Future and we had a nice turnout and got some great matches.. Check out the site and the sweet sweet African orphans who showed so much spirit singing to us via skype.  We had a few more matches and some great memories for those here.  I did a fundraiser which is still going from Scentsy, so if you are looking to get some great products and donate to a great cause email me to be part of the fundraiser or look at the website and sign up for the newsletter - anyone who signs up for the newsletter I will donate 2$ plus 100% of my commission for any purchases.. my email is jennymay.mckim@gmail.com
If you are also interested in sponsoring an orphan it is 300$ a year and you get LOTS of photos and updates and the opportunity to personally skype with your child.. Email me if you would like more info or send a facebook message to the group and my husband will help you out!


On the right is Glorious the 8 year old that Adam and I have "adopted" within the 130 orphans from the Orphanage.  The money goes to the entire group but the contact is personal!

Check them out CHAT To The Future on facebook or their Basic Blog getting started at
CHAT TO THE FUTURE

= Honestly it has been a busy but somewhat relaxing summer here in the McKim household and I can't believe we only have three more weeks until Adam goes back to work and until I have my after school children to make up for me quitting work!

The girls are starting to fuss around my feet and I should get their supper ready!
