Just another beautiful day on Manitoulin Island

The day began quite normally. My niece, Pook was with me for the day. She helped me prepare for the arrival of our new batch of students. Pook was so sweet and made some name tags and "Welcome to Canada" signs for the students.

Earlier in the day, my gal pal, N and I were talking about going for a swim. We decided on taking my niece and her little sister to my fave place on the island...Carter's Bay, the beach Hubby and I got married on last June.
Before I left the house, Fred was flaked out on our bed. The poor girl was so uncomfortable and so huge from being so pregnant!
N and Little C.

When we got home, Fred was acting strangely. Sometime after supper, her water broke...right beside where Pook was sitting! LOL! Pook got to experience first hand, the miracle of birth. She recorded the times of birth for me. Fred had 5 kittens. 2 orange and 3 black. Pook said they looked like little, wet rats! LOL!

Hi! we have a dog, two cats and seven kittens! (Plus Hubby's cattle) If we don't find owners for all the kittens, we'll have to make some of them 'barn kittens'. Fred and George are definitely getting fixed as soon as their babies are weaned!

LOL! Yeah, it's rough teaching in the mornings and afternoons and then going to the beach every day! LOL!

These new kitties are sooooo cute! They are super small too! Smaller than the first batch! Elie would love them. I thought it was so cute how he got so excited about the other two!
