Congrats Private Smyth!

Enrollment with the Loyal Edmonton Regiment

Last year, on his 16th birthday (in July) Wesley submitted his application to the Canadian Forces Primary Reserve. After a five month recruitment process (that included exams, training, physical testing and a few minor paperwork glitches) he was accepted!

We are very proud of him and his efforts. This is what he has wanted to do since he was a small boy, but more importantly a year and a half ago he asked what it would take for me to give permission for him to enlist at 16 - I told him and he worked tirelessly towards achieving what I had outlined for him. This is a result of that focus, hard work and determination.

sights unseen

Raven standing outside the Works Gallery Space in Edmonton, where her Still Life in watercolour is showing in the "sights unseen" art show (running from Jan 11th to Jan 15th, Works Gallery Space 10635 - 95th Street).

It was a delight to go there with her on Opening Night and see her art hanging on the wall. This is certainly an activity I could get used too!
