All Canadian Learning Sale. GO!

The All Canadian super duper sale has begun - so much goodness.  All Canadian content and authors bundled together for an unbelievable price. 

Check out the details HERE, it's a great opportunity to gather your resources for a Canadian study for all ages.

I'll publish some ideas for Canadian literature to complement Canadian studies later this week!

Adorable, Fun and Restful

Dear People,

This year is my summer of rest.  That means I do a lot, but I do it more slowly and only when I want to.  And it's been good.

Just a couple of glimpses of some of the nice things I have done so far this summer:

Get to know my two grandsons, Edwin, above, Ronan, below:

Go out for breakfast with my own baby girl:

Go for coffee with my bookend daughters, Alice, 29, Rosebud, 10:

Go out for ice cream with these three, and pose with the poster of the play they are in, 
A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare at the Farm:

Woah, no I did not hike and canoe to Della Falls, but Sparky and the boys did, and I both missed them AND had the house to just Rosebud and Myself:

Bonus photo, Sparky and Edwin:

And  all of that, my friends,  is time well spent.

And baby makes ten

There's been a lot of baby-happening around here as you already know.
And here's some very big news...our baby, our OWN baby,
our BABY - turns ten years old today.

She is lovely, wise, sophisticated.
She is tender and loves God and her family so very much.

She possesses a dry wit.  By way of example.  When I let her eat in the living room yesterday, qualifying that this was only because it was the eve of her birthday she replied,
"I'll try to contain myself."

This is a very poor quality picture of a picture because it was handy.
Note the bruise on the right of her forehead.  She has six older siblings, and therefore sustained minor injuries in her day-to-day life.
In real life, it's actually quite a nice picture, I keep it on my wall with my other baby pictures.
