About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

Presenting Eden Elizabeth

Update: Jamie phoned and says she's feeling much better today and actually was able to eat breakfast. She's still extremely tired, but let's face it - she's been through a lot - she only finished working full time last Friday! But I was so glad to hear her voice sounding stronger. Thanks for all your good wishes.

Hi everyone! Well, the baby is a true princess! She looks a lot like her brother when he was born except she's so much daintier. It was wonderful to hold that little bundle of joy in my arms and I didn't want to let her go back to her parents.

Poor Jamie, though, is not feeling very well today. Whatever they gave her for the C-section has made her feel so sick and dizzy and she's pretty much out of it. But the baby has "latched on" quite well and that part is working so she's definitely thriving.

And Daddy Jason changed his first dirty diaper while we were there. He's being so good to my daughter taking care of her and is a joyful new papa.

Noah got to hold his baby sister and keeps talking about his being a "big brudder." He's sound asleep now and I'm going to get some sleep as soon as I finish this.

You all have been so kind with your congratulations and you've all mentioned how much you want to see pictures. So, may I present my granddaughter, Eden Elizabeth:


Eden Elizabeth

In the arms of loving Gramma!


Proud Papa!

Proud Big Brudder!
Proud Auntie Jaclyn!
Proud Gramma!
Proud everyone!
Daddy learns how to clean the parts of a baby girl.

The exhausted, but loving, family.

She is just perfect, Leslie! Absolutely gorgeous.
At first sight I thought she looked like quite a big baby then I saw her in her brother's arms! She's so tiny. We forget very quickly just how tiny new babies are because they grow so quickly.
