The best laid plans, you know the rest. Atticus (10) and Roman (8) were booked to fly together from Paris to Montreal in mid-July, the week before they were to spend a week at Dovercourt Day Camp. The night before departure,  Roman was hospitalized with a burst appendix. Atticus came as planned, on his own, but Roman spent the next five days in the hospital and another week at home recuperating. Roman missed out on Day Camp but Atticus and his cousin Gavin (12), Ross's youngest son both had a great time at Day Camp. Atticus was in Soccer camp and Gavin enjoyed his Boys Only activities. After receiving a good report on Roman's recovery, Erica joined us mid-way that week. 

Finally Roman and his father, Andrew Auerbach, flew to Ottawa just in time to join us and all of Ross's family for the first week of August at a cottage on Black Donald Lake, near Ottawa. We all enjoyed the cottage. It was large enough to accommodate all 11 of us, the water was just the right temperature and there were short walks to take nearby.

We took Gavin back with us to Ottawa in order for him to attend another week at Dovercourt Day Camp, this time for Lego Robotics. To give their parents a break, Atticus and Roman also came to Ottawa after the cottage before joining their parents a few days later in Montreal. We had a good time with all the boys before delivering them to their parents mid-week.
It was a busy time for all but well worth it. We don't very often get to visit with our son and daughter and their families at the same time.
