For those with little ones who returned to school this week, I hope everything went well. And to my teacher friends, I hope you are not too traumatized.
I am once again sharing cell phone photos from the past week. I don’t have many. I will have more in the future, since I finally ordered my own cell phone, so I don’t have to use my husband’s anymore.
My phone arrived today…and left again. Why is it that the courier ALWAYS comes during the one hour you leave the house? Does this happen to you too?
We enjoyed a busy last week of vacation, ending it with a visit to Canada’s Wonderland last Friday. It was so hot that I felt sick by the end of the day. We caught a cirque-style show in the air conditioned theatre. That was nice. I didn’t actually care what the show was about, as long as it was cool and I could sit down.
We also hit the wave pool for a bit. It was actually freezing. Not sure how that was possible on one of the hottest days of the year. Don’t you love it when little kids splash you while you’re still dry?
We also saw a movie in the local park one night (on a large inflatable screen). It’s a great idea for families, and we saw lots of parents with babies. No babysitter required, and the kids can wander when they get bored. Perfect.
We had seen the movie, Big Miracle, before, but that didn’t matter to the kids. I really could have done without the second look at seeing the characters chop ice for extended periods of time, but what the heck. That’s what parents do…sacrifice.I was worried about how the kids would react to having to go back to school, so I took them each shopping (separately) for back-to-school supplies. I think that having new, colourful stuff helps to motivate them.
With the kids back at school, I have been unusually energized. I am organizing, cleaning, writing and, of course, baking.
How was your week?
