Buckles is on the move again!

Advertisements

I am a former lifeguard and swim instructor I know first hand the benefits of life jackets and water safety. Please give your kids the gift of being able to swim and the knowledge oh how to be safe around the water. Get your children into swimming lessons! You can and should start them at 4 months. This is the best time to start them as they are very comfortable in the water and you get are with them! (Its a great bonding experience between parent and baby as i found out from bringing my own two children). My two have been in lessons at every opportunity (excluding the summers when it gets busy in the van Mil house) even redoing certain levels because they just weren’t old enough to advance; just to keep them in the water and learning those life saving swimming skills. Nothing replaces parental supervision of your children around all bodies of water ( a child can drown in a little as 15″ of water) but you can at least buy yourself some time when you do see them fall in or in trouble.

Keep safe and have fun around the water like it should be 🙂

Red Cross Talks

if you ever see an oversized lifejacket walking around your community, you’ll know Buckles is in town!

Buckles is the Canadian Red Cross mascot for water safety. He gets around the country quite a bit too. He’s been to Timmins, ON; last summer he did a road show in Atlantic Canada; he golfed in Calgary and visited Peggy’s Cove in Nova Scotia. He even got to pose with Snoop Dogg (well, not really — we photoshopped Snoop’s head in there).

This summer, we took Buckles to meet our friends in the Moose Cree First Nations community in Northern Ontario. Buckles was a hit up there!

At the Red Cross, we love Buckles because he reminds all of us – kids and adults – how important it is to wear lifejackets and stay safe while having fun in and around the water.

Would you like to see Buckles in…

Day one of @feverdancechamps #fevermarkham2018 so proud of this girl! #prouddad #prouddaddy #dadblogger #dancedad #dancecompetition #dance #booyabdc
Happy I got the chance to watch the little man wrestle today!
We never realized how hard this tragedy would hit us. 😭. Can’t imagine what these families are going though. #PutYourSticksOut #HumboldtStrong
Papa was always so proud of Noah in everything he did especially his hockey. He always wanted to be there for his games and practices; you could always see the pride in his eyes and they way he spoke about how he was progressing. We lost papa last summer to cancer and it made Noah’s first season as a select player difficult because he wasn’t with us to experience this incredible season and Noah’s exponential increase in skills. Noah is raising money for the pedal for hope campaign in honour of his papa by shaving his head at his school. Please consider a donation ,no amount is too small, and help him reach his goal. You can also help by sharing this post with your friends. Thanks for reading 🙂 The link is in my profile

Just tried out the new @underarmourca #UAHOVR #uahovrphantom shoes! These shoes have the same great heal cusion/bounce as the #uahovrsonic that I love. I also like that there is no tongue to pull up on these and you just slide you foot right in! The colour is super hot and bright however they will get dirty fast so be aware if you don’t like your shoe getting dirty. But, if you don’t like getting your shoes dirty then why are you running outside? Lol. I did find my heals slid a bit in the shoe but if you have great socks like I do then you shouldn’t have a problem. One other thing I noticed about this shoe is that the toe box is not very roomy so if you have insoles that you like to run in or your Fort requires extra room then you will find your toes hitting the top of the shoes. I ended up with a sore big toe on my nail after this run. I’ll have to use less of an insole or none at all when I use this shoe again. The shoe had great give and elasticity around the whole shoe so it really fit nicely around the top of my foot. I found there was good ankle support and didn’t notice any rolling when I transitioned to the uneven grass from the sidewalks and roadways. Overall another great shoe from #UnderArmor and I would highly recommend it when picking new shoes. As always when I talk to people about shoes please try on as many as possible to find the pair that best suits your foot shape, your gait and support that you require. Thank you @underarmourca and @paradigm_pr for giving me these shoes to try out and share with you guys! #CanadaWILL @enertorglobal @teamtiux
That looks much better! Thanks @lamarcahairsalon ! #haricut #barber #cleanedup
