Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

The Graduate


Last week my oldest grandson did us all proud and graduated from primary school, Grade 8.

Dylan, like his brother and sister is an excellent student. He has always brought home a report card of which he could be proud. Outside of school , he is active in several sports : hockey, soccer, football, competitive swimming to name a few. As well, he has some interest in music, playing the keyboard and drums. What makes him most endearing is that he is a lovely, well adjusted person. In short, he is a wonderful grandson, son and brother, of whom we are all justifiably proud, a well rounded kid.

Dylan aspires to become a veterinarian. He has four years to consider this dream or find another. Whatever he settles on in life I am sure he will accomplish much and share much with those around him.
















The entrance to the school. Dylan , Olivia and Travis all go to this public language school French school. Their high achievement at school is more remarkable to me because French is not their first language. How envious I am!





















The happy boy on the happy day. I like that he is wearing the T shirt I brought him from Belgium with all the varieties of beer on the front.

















Olivia and Dylan mugging for the photo



















Dylan with is grandpa, one for the photo album.






Just before the big moment, pleased with himself and mildly amused with it all.

He is very handsome and I would have taken him for a senior in high school; so mature looking. I certainly understand your being a proud grandpa.
