Or, at least, summer as the kids know it. Tomorrow, they go back to school. We’ve had a wonderful, fun-filled summer. We went camping, fishing, blueberry-picking, hiking, did some workshops, splashed around in rock pools and waterfalls, saw water buffalos, checked out a trampoline park, goofed around at the 3D Museum, had play dates with various friends… The kids also got to watch their first Bollywood film (3 Idiots) and loved it.
We spent today getting their stuff ready for school. Josh got his hair cut. We did some last-minute shopping for stationery. Zoë busied herself with labeling all her stuff with her special Sofia I name stickers. We packed and made sure that all the books borrowed from the school’s Learning Centre are accounted for. The kids are ready! As ready as any Year 5 and Year 3 kid can be.
