First off both kids have to go to bed early the night before because for us to be there by 9:00 am I have to have them up at 8:00. Jevan doesn't even get up at 8:00 on a regular school day, let alone a Saturday. Shall we just say "Mr. Grumpy" for the rest of the day? The drive is half an hour and 40 km's one way, total time: 2 hours and 160 km's for the day. I figure I might as well hit the grocery store when I'm there but I have to wait until 10 o'clock until either grocery store opens. I know no one well enough in Lytton to visit so I throw caution to the wind and show up 1/2 an hour late so the wait isn't as long, I think next time I'll be an hour late. The teacher wants them there from 9 until 3 so that means after shopping I drive home, wait, and then drive back. Even if I did know someone I could visit for the day I have 33 chickens at home that cannot wait until 3:30 pm to be let out of their coop. Oh did I mention that Jevan threw up his breakfast before we hit Lytton? Yeah that was lovely, note to self; do not feed Jevan breakfast until we get back home. I would have given him gravol but I didn't want a grumpy, sleepy, spaced out kid dragging himself behind me at the grocery store so I took a chance and lost. Coming home I let him sit in the front seat and then he seems to be fine but one of these days I'm going to get pulled over and really hear it from the RCMP... the way my morning went it's a wonder it didn't happen today. Okay rant off... until the next letter comes home, grumble, grumble... :)
I did see quite the view on the way home.
In the left bottom you can see the ginseng field at a neighbour's down the road, and far off in the distance in the centre of the picture is the Ranch. It's hard to see but that's nasty snow coming down on the mountains.
Edit: Oh for heaven's sake!! I just read the letter all the way through and Sydney didn't have to be at the school until TEN! So we were actually half an hour EARLY! I swear the kid told me 9, and that's my story and I'm stickin' to it. Note: don't take Sydney's word for it, read the next letter to the end!
