Dd20 took a summer course at college in May and is currently touring Europe with her string quartet ... some concerts, some R&R. They're off to Prague tomorrow. She normally lives in Montreal, but she's going to come home (here) after getting back from Europe and spend the last part of the summer with us. She'll work a few shifts at her old café job.
Ds17 is working at a combination museum, living history site, and cultural centre memorializing the experience of Japanese internees in our area during WWII. He loves the job and the people he works with, which is a nice contrast to last summer, when he worked in a ghost town with a few personality disorders.
Dd15 is spinning her wheels right now. She's working part-time at a restaurant doing prep and being a dish monkey, but she's not getting enough hours and she's bored during the daytime. She's thinking of digging into her Grade 12 math course or looking for other work.
Dd11 will be doing a dance camp and a violin/chamber music camp, and a bit of work and volunteering with young kids here and there. She's a "violin practicing buddy" to a couple of young girls once a week and does a bit of babysitting.
We're going to be trying to find time for some back-country camping in July and August.
