Painting the Canadian flag

As many of you know in our court we have a very special Canada Day celebration that starts the day before Canada Day. We start by painting a huge Canadian flag on the “floor” or pavement on the court.

I believe they have been doing this tradition for over six years now, but this is only our second year being a part of it. This year we had a terrible winter, as in barely any snow, so the flag we painted last year was completely faded away by the sun. So the “boys” of the court went to work to recreate last years Canadian flag. It was hilarious watching them measure an actual flag and then times it by 100 to get the flag we ended up painting. John and Ryan (our organizers) are very creative fellows.

Meanwhile the kids were being occupied by many of the neighbourhood kids with of course Mommy’s watchful eye. They just love Faith and Shawn.

It was a lot of work but totally worth it. I just love working with my neighbours. Check out the pictures that De-Ann took so I am actually in quite a few pictures…which is very rare. The last few pictures are of the finished product. I think we did a pretty good job, if I do say so myself. haha.
