Another day, another sporting competition for Ezra-tether ball was today, Ezra lost every match (because everyone was a foot taller than him).  He was pretty upset but the older kids made him feel better by saying they couldn’t believe how good he was at 7.

We formed a family Portager Challenge team this year (Pam & Kelly with Tobin in the boat, Rob doing the long run, I climbed the wall, Ezra sprinted, Mari swam and we had to build a fire and pop some Jiffy Pop).  It was our first family attempt and we can in 2nd place just after a bunch of teenagers, we were pretty proud

And, Pam bringing the matches in that Marian swam to us

Pam pretending like she didn’t want to do the Challenge but I think she secretly wanted to win;)

And, check out this awesome fire my husband made!  (That’s the reason he had to be on the team)

Our team:)

Tobin, Luke & Emily enjoying the spoils

And, a little time for some fishing

While I was taking pictures from the beach, this Monarch was torturing me!  It would not land and open it’s wings-I must have shot 30 pictures of it and just stood there waiting patiently


And, another great day in the books:)
