Official Notice :)

This is my notice that there will be no new posts on this blog. I am keeping it open since there are people who come visit by searching specific Montessori things and such in Google, but there will be nothing new on this blog! Given the lack of substance in the posts for at least a few months now, I'm sure this won't be too great of a surprise. ;) Just thought I would make it official so those who aren't subscribed but keep visiting will know there will be nothing new to check!

I'm not keeping up with this at all, am I?

Life is so very busy! And with Christmas holidays nearly here, it means the "work crunch", lol, as well as all the usual Christmasy stuff we do. I think we'll skip the Festival of Trees this year--although that's only being encouraged by the fact we're busy, not the sole reason. Every year, it's been less and less interesting, or they've had fewer and fewer activities. Kind of disappointing. I don't know, we'll see, I guess.

It's been very cold here these past few days, but finally warming up a bit. I do envy those who are in warmer places!

It is cold!

The weather changes far too quickly. It's hard to adjust to the cold like this. Sounds like a good time, though, to think about including seasons, winter, something along those lines into our schooling! :) I just hope it's not too cold for Halloween.

October has been insane. Between birthdays, Thanksgiving, an early Christmas, get-togethers with friends, families, school activities, a visit to Telus World of Science to check out the Lego exhibit (very cool, I highly recommend), and the kids' extra-curricular activities, it has been crazy. Some things have had to be skipped over because they conflicted with something else. So busy that one friend said to me after we had lunch together one day and she'd heard about it all, "I'm honoured you fit me into your October!" lol.

Just a few more days of October. November will still be hectic, but not insane. I hope. ;D

One month done!

I guess it was an okay start to the year. We need to work on our work habits!

Social studies is actually turning out to be okay, at least for now. The first unit is on globalization and has lead to some interesting conversations.

I haven't been doing German with my two. That's a shame. Have to work on some goals and plans for October.

September was quite busy; October is going to be even busier. Expect even fewer posts from me!

Free Admission Sunday!

Just read about Free Admission Sunday going on tomorrow. The city offers free admission to city-owned attractions, such as the zoo, and some of the rec centres. Maybe we'll try to get in on that!

Could life be any busier?

Not sure what to recap on. Life has just been so busy around here! Meeting up with friends, the weekly French get-together, evening activities, visit to Telus World of Science, a birthday and more. Stuff has gotten done school-wise, but it's been slow going. The weather has not been helping at all--until the past few days, dreary, cloudy, often rainy, cold. And we've all been fighting off something!

The latest

Um... LOL.

Can't skip Social 10. So, Bob has to do all three social studies within the next 2 years. We will do it! Darn province!

Other than that, it feels like the school year is going by far too quickly. This month is already half done. I need to make sure we stay on top of our work, while still making time for fun stuff. :) One thing we want to do this year are visit Telus World of Science a lot. Not sure what else! Too sleepy this morning.

Busy, busy!

Very busy around here with schedules all over the place between some kids in school, then not, and after school and now Bob has decided he's going for a diploma! So, on top of his Math 10 Pure (unofficial, because the province dropped it for Math 10-C, but 10P is a better choice before 20P next semester and his facilitator gave him the go-ahead), his Science 10 and half of the ELA 20-2 this semester, we need to add Phys. Ed. 10 and social of some sort. I'm hoping we can skip Social 10 completely. Maybe we'll work towards finishing ELA 20-2 this semester so we can move up to 20-1 next semester. We're meeting his facilitator within the next week so we'll be able to get everything sorted out.

Other than that, not much to report! Progressively getting into work here. And the weather is crummy. :(
