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. :(

Labour Day, the day we don't work ;)

Funny, isn't it?

I'll just think of it as a day to prepare ourselves to get working. School starts "for real" this week! All the discussing and planning are done, well, almost, and we are ready to get going. I've already decided no outings for the month, other than the essentials (library, meetings with facilitator). Well, maybe impromptu outings if the work is kept on top of. ;)

Had fun yesterday!

We met up with some friends yesterday and had some fun at a playground. It was so nice to chat and the kids had fun playing. :)

We're still not in work mode, but that's okay. Some schools don't start until Tuesday. We've still got some things to buy and some decisions to make. Hard to get started when things aren't all decided!
