First Day of School!
Our new home school room (the room right at the top of our upstairs) is fabulous. It has a lot of space and a wonderfully big window. It also keeps the mess off the kitchen table which is where we used to school. Mia thrives on structure and is happy to begin a new school year. She likes to know exactly how a day is going to unfold. The night before school she needed to know the day plan-down to details such as brushing our teeth before we school. I've incorporated 'story time' into our day, to discipline myself to nurture the appreciation of written work, in my children. It's easy to sluff it off due to laundry and other mundane activity but I think reading is a good thing to be intentional about.

Ksena Turns 4!!

I brought Ksena to the fridge to show her the b-day cake and she says 'Yea. Can I have a yogurt?' Ahem...what does she know of the time it took to make it-I underestimated it myself and am embarrassed about how long it took. Thankfully my mother-in-law says it does take time and she's the cake pro, so that made me feel better.

Sunday Birthday Coffee-a tradition we love...Thanks for coming everybody!! :O)

Holiday in Tobermory

The Grotto Entrance (fancy word for cave)

Inside the grotto...sunlight from an underwater entrance illuminates the water. This color is splashed all over the waters of Tobermory-it reminded us of the Bahamas.

Coloring at the Visitor's Center

The lookout tower

Proudly flying at the top of the lookout tower...

A snake eating a frog. Lunch anyone??

What do you use your Green Bins for?! They make a wonderful bath tub...

This is CANADA!

Did you know there are over 40 species of orchids in Tobermory?! I'm taking my chances that is one of them. There were pics at the Visitor's Center and this flower reminded me of them...
