I just realized that I have been MIA for a few days!
March 11-20 was March break and so I had 3 children to keep amused. This usually isn't a difficult thing to do when you have money, but the kitchen renovation and following wiring crisis used up any extra money we had. This was going to have to be a cheap week! The 2 older kids are in high school and having hard semesters so I thought that several days of R & R were in order for them ~ time to wind down and clear their heads. A trip to Lindsay at the 'small mall' made them happy, as well as a few days spent with friends. The youngest is a little harder to keep amused as she has a lot more energy. Sunday was a day well spent outside - we removed the training wheels from her bike and after a few hours she was riding on her own! We went to the sport store and traded in some used sports equipment and bought new soccer shoes for the upcoming season. It was a good week and I was sorry to see it end.
Tuesday, I went with the grade 2 class to the Nonquon Environmental Education Center just North of Port Perry. The class was there to learn about Reptiles and Amphibians, and about the environmental issues affecting them. Very interesting, but I was most interested in the various 'stuffed' animals there.
I am sure I have seen a Fisher like this cross my lawn with the neighbors dog in hot pursuit...
