It's been a while since I've posted much, so I thought I would get you all caught up on what's been happening around here the past few weeks. The kids and I have been in such a good routine for school and we have successfully stayed on schedule for the first 7 weeks already! I'm having so much fun watching the kids get excited about what we are learning and the new skills they are accomplishing. We still have managed to get in a nature walk/fun adventure on Fridays and so the kids love it when Fun Day Friday comes each week!
One week we headed to Hovander Park to play on the old farm equipment and see the animals.
The kids also had a ton of fun posing for pictures around the barns and kept running to a new spot and calling for me to take their picture.
I thought maybe I could get in a good one of all four for a Christmas picture, but it is impossible to get all of them looking and smiling by myself!
We also went to Stoney Ridge Farms for a day. The kids liked looking at all the animals.
We even made it through the corn maze without finding a dead end or getting lost.
Last week, we took a break from school so Hubby and I could get away for a few days and finally celebrate our anniversary this past summer. Only 3 months late, not too bad. :)
We headed up to Victoria and had a beautiful day to ride the ferry.
We stayed in a waterfront hotel, but the water view rooms where kinda pricey. Our view of the city wasn't too bad, though.
This is the roof top of the lobby right under our balcony so we had a nice view of some gardens too.
The government buildings were very old and impressive looking.
Unfortunately, our camera battery died and I forgot to bring the cord to recharge it, so we didn't get any more pictures. We went to the museum, walked around the harbor, took a water taxi across the harbor, and mostly just relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. I even managed to painlessly pass two kidney stones while we were there! They were quite big too, so I'm surprised they didn't bother me much, just had to use the bathroom quite a bit (ok, a LOT!) the first day. Here is a picture of one next to a dime to show you a size comparison.
Wish they were all that easy and hopefully I won't get any more!
Anyway, it's back to school and hopefully back into our routine quickly this week!
