Kristin received some unexpected news today: She was the recipient of The Vale Canada Ltd. Scholarship in Environmental Science. We don't know much about the award, other than it is one of two dozen awards and scholarships given to full-time students in the School of Geography & Earth Sciences at McMaster University. And it is worth $2,000, which will cover a decent portion of her fourth year tuition.
On Thursday June 27, 2013, Jakob finished his high school career in a balmy gymnasium at Barrie North Collegiate.
We thought we learned our lesson from the last high school graduation in the family, and arrived over half an hour earlier, but the seats were all gone. Except the bleachers, that is, which actually gave us a good view and a wall to lean on. Too bad heat rises, though!
Suddenly at Kingsmere, Alliston on Thursday January 24, 2013. Paul Sealy at the age of 79 years. Beloved husband of Diana. Loving father of Jocelyn and Mark, and Jennifer and Dan. Remembered with love by his grandchildren Kristin and Jakob. Dear brother of David and the late Joan Sealy. Dear Uncle of Beth, Michele, and Craig.
Whoa! An FTF Hat Trick by a cacher (moi) who doesn't even try to get FTFs? Yep, and it's the best kind... the kind that find me.
Last time I did this was almost six years ago. Then, I was going for it. This time, I just happened to head to some caches that had been published just before 10:00 pm the evening before. The fact that the morning was waning and that I stopped at another cache on the way meant I was not expecting these hides to have virgin logs.
Today at noon, Kristin boarded a plane for Montreal, where she will meet up with her Me to We group, and fly off to Nairobi, Kenya (via Zurich). Free the Children -- the charity partner of Me to We -- was founded in 1995 by 12-year old Craig Keilberger to fight against child labour. Today, Free the Children is the world's largest network of "children helping children" through education.
