Summer’s Over



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.

I hate it when it rolls around for us, but now I'm glad we're 2 1/2 weeks closer to next summer break. :)

I can imagine that getting ready for school is a lot of work. They sure don't look too upset in that picture!

I hope the first day was fantastic! They are growing up so quickly. It's fun to think back to when they were younger and fun to have followed friends for so long to see these transformations!

We started school on the 7th, but the kids are still having a blast every day after school.
