I’m Back

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

I am back to blogging after a fantastic and busy summer.  July and August were wonderful months. It was a great break both for the kids and myself from the regular routine, school lunches and homework routine. Obviously, I still worked throughout the summer but managed to take some wonderful breaks. 

This year we bought wonderland passes for Canada’s amusement park. It was well worth buying them and we spent a lot of time at Wonderland, the kids had a ball on all the different rides and sometimes when we were there, we also went to the water park. It was really fun to have had the passes to use this year. 

We also went to Ottawa at the end of July. Ottawa is a fabulous place to visit. We did some wonderful historic tours, and also went to some fantastic museums there. I think they have the best museums in the world. We did a lot of walking but learnt so many interesting things about Canada’s history. 

I have just returned from Chicago, which I went for my nieces wedding. It was a lovely break for me to have by myself too. Sometimes mom’s need a break too. 

Today is the start of getting back into routine. Our school year began today again. My 10 year old son went into grade 5 and my 7 year old daughter went into grade two. I feel positive about the school year ahead. and although I never thought I’d admit it, I am positive about getting back to regular routine, including overseeing homework and making school lunches each day again.
