Spring Sprint 2013

Kristen and I, along with our daughter Mari, will be walking in the 2013 Spring Sprint in Saskatoon next Sunday (June 9th), in support of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. Please sponsor us at, and if you're in Saskatoon on the 9th, please come out and be a part of the event - we'd love to see you there!

And for a little trip down memory lane, here's Kol giving his speech at the 2011 Spring Sprint:

Off to a running start (with our friend and brain tumour survivor Gary):

See you at the Sprint!

Tuesday, May 21, 2013


Today has been on our minds for the last little while. It's hard to believe it's been a year, although I can't quite decide if it's hard to believe it's been only a year or if it's hard to believe it's been a year already.

We kept today pretty low-key. Tuesdays are normally pretty busy around our home - it seems to be the day that everything happens, like band, piano lessons, voice lessons, youth group, quizzing, bible study - but today we skipped out on most of those activities. We had pancakes for breakfast. We watched some Star Wars movies. We packed a picnic supper and went out to Kol's grave. We wrote messages to Kol on helium balloons and let them fly. We came back home, played some Star Wars Trivial Pursuit, and watched some Star Trek. And we cried.

Thank you all for your support over this past year.
