October felt like it was over as soon as it started! Can you believe there are only 53 days until Christmas?? We started and ended the month with dressing up. First up was ‘Dress as Your Favourite Book Character’ day at school and Bobby chose Geronimo Stilton. I am not a crafty person by any means so I was very proud of myself for DIYing this up for him the day before.
September was a big month for the kids; Cordelia turned 4 and started ballet, and Bobby started Grade 3. I already feel like I took for granted how relaxed the summer was, it really didn’t feel that way at the time. We have settled into a pretty good routine though, and while it does feel like we aren’t accomplishing everything we’d like to each week… we are happy and (mostly) healthy so that’s all that matters.
Hard to believe that summer is almost over, I feel like it just started. (Seriously haven’t even unpacked Bobby’s backpack from last year yet and we have to do back to school shopping tomorrow!)
We spent the last two weekends up at my in-law’s cottage in Slave Lake; the long weekend with them and this past weekend just the four of us. Both weekends were absolutely wonderful, and while we have a ton of stuff around the house to catch up on it was totally worth it.
