I’m Back

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.

I’ve never really considered buying annual passes for anywhere but I guess they can be a good deal.

We usually don’t do it but this year it was worth it, as we made good use of the passes.

I’ve been to Canada. It was for a hockey tournament… conveniently I was a child… of only 13. We lost. It was in Vancouver, which is not even close to Ottawa. Although I have been to Ottawa Illinois before. Not much there. Just some corn and stores. Children should go to Canada, there is much scenery, along with beavers, trees and hockey.

It’s so hard fining trustworthy child care center these days. With the world being so crazy, and getting learning materials through to children, it’s one of my biggest concerns!

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d
ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a
blog article or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same topics as yours
and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you’re interested feel free to send me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
