March Break

 I thought I would share a few photos of the girls on their March Break, which Sheena ensured was full of fun activities.  Nearly every day, they went skating and swimming at the Sussex Pool.  Both girls are becoming quite the skaters now.  Abby is actually using both feet and concentrates very hard on her technique.  Rebecca spends most time flying around the ice and has yet to learn how to stop.  

Sheena also took them on a group snowshoe/hike in Sussex at the Bluff Trail.  The photo below is Abby and her dear friend Kim.  Abby was demonstrating her caring self by taking care of her friend.  Sheena said they walked most of the trail hugging each other!

Here is the group shot from the look off at the turn around point.  There were quite the lot of them!

Our snow is piling high!  This sign is about 5 feet in the air.  We've been constantly shoveling it out the past month.

Rebecca easily sitting on top of the well cover. There is a good 4 feet below her.

The girls also started a little play spot in the woods beside the driveway.  Here's Abby falling into a hole that Sheena made when trying to walk on top of the snow.

What have I been doing during March break? Well working of course, but also for the past 4 weeks I've been taking a kayaking safety course at the pool in Saint John.  Here's a few photos of me trying to practice the movements for rolling a kayak.  We use river runner/white water kayaks for practice, with nice neoprene skirts to prevent the water from coming in.  Notice my technique is a bit wrong with my head up instead of down!
