bad blogger award....

goes to ME! Lol!

I've been very bad in keeping up with my blog. Life just sometimes seems to get in the way, you know!
This past month we traveled across our province and visited with my brother, sister-in-law and nephew. We had a fabulous week! Lots of exciting things to see and do.
The most fun was wall-climbing! It's something I've always wanted to try and I'm glad I can at least say "I did it once". Actually, I did it more than once, but the kids were much better at wall-climbing that I was. Here's a photo of me on one of the easier walls :-)

We also went mini-golfing, visited Signal Hill, visited the Geocentre, went to a movie (Mr Bean's Holiday, which we loved!) and went to a local beach. Of course, we did a bit of shopping, with my obligatory trip to Michaels (bought an alpha die for my Cuttlebug)

After that week of excitement, I spent a week getting the kids' lesson plans ready for school. I usually do up 12 weeks in advance. I also had to order some new math books (yaaah! says Jessica, NOT, says Luke) and an astronomy text. We're doing Jeannie Fulbright's Exploring Creation with Astronomy.

We just finished our first week of school and so far, things are going well.

That is just too cool. Was the wall climbing hard. Myu kids have done it, but I have never attempted it.

So Cool!
