in Lucas, Photo of the Day

We have driven past this monument in the Half Moon Bay section of Barrhaven many times, and I’ve always been curious about it. Last night after swimming lessons, Lucas and I decided to head over to check it out up close.

I’m trying to be free-range relaxed, but my inner helicopter parent is screeching for control. As I’ve mentioned, we’ve signed Lucas up for soccer.
