School trip

Skiing at Chicopee

Most of Marc's class hang out on this part of the hill

French Homework

Last Saturday the boys did their French Homework

Making a commercial for the Quebec carnival
They chose a very cold day to be outside

The dialogue was limited
French is not a favourite subject

Sparrows seem so ordinary,
but when you really look at them they are quite pretty

Happy Birthday to Rien

A gift from Olga, a new blanket

By the way it is much warmer -2C

Monday, January 24, 2011


It's pretty outside but to cold

-26C and a strong wind
The barn has a down draft and it's starting to freeze up

But the forecast is for higher temperatures

Saturday, January 22, 2011


It's cold, windy and sunny

The snow is on the move

Long shadows, late afternoon

Marc has a snow-Day.
I was surprised but maybe we are just protected in the valley

I bought these spikes for under my shoes
It's nice when you walk outside, it gives more grip

Big Attraction

Our church has a big attraction for kids

The little waterfall

rearranging the stones is so much fun!

I tried to make a picture of 2 sun-dogs
This side didn't work very good

Here you can see 1 above this farm

and a zoom. It has kind of rainbow colours

Men's Life

At Teviotdale

First a good breakfast

Then distribute the papers

Brenda cleans up
She is amazing, Rien only goes for breakfast 2 months in the year
and she remembers from year to year his preferences

Time for bible study

H is for....

Honda, it drives well in the winter

Winter Sunset

I love seeing the sun on the snow and the sunsets are beautiful

Wednesday, January 12, 2011


It looks big, shiny, clean and waxed

Marc is hoping to get a ride soon

No change

When there is not much change in the weather
It's hard to decide what to picture

Path in the snow

Marc likes to take a short cut through the lawn
coming home from school

Frisse Neus

We walked to the end of the farm
just to be out of the house for a while

It was very refreshing

Snow needed

The trail does not have enough snow yet

Marc would like some more snow to fall soon

The Christmas Tree is outside waiting for the first wiener roast

The fire-pit doesn't look ready yet
