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.
A few weeks ago my husband came up with a fabulous idea: to take the kids to Drumheller for a little family adventure! We kept it a secret right up until we got in the truck, though Bobby knew something was up because we were leaving the house over an hour earlier than normal.
