Another Snow Day

Seriously. We are getting to the point where we can't handle a full week of school. I have stopped working much farther ahead then the next days lesson plans since it is hard to know when the next day will actually be. So today was full of a lot of non-school and fun stuff. Oh I take that back. I did finish up a novel for school, but for me, that is pretty fun. Here is what I did:

Slept in.
Made some cards, took pictures of them and posted the pictures on my card blog.
Got our tax stuff together for our tax return.
Finished a book that I was reading for fun.
Spent some time on the computer on Facebook and Stumbling around.
Played some on-line games.
Watched an episode of Cake Boss (not nearly as good as Ace of Cakes, I always skip over the parts when he is yelling).
Walked to church to drop off some stuff, the post office, and the library.
Read another book (yes, a whole one. It was a quick read and a very engaging story.)
Worked out.
Had some nice meals with my husband.

And soon I will be going to bed. It was a lovely day. But, we need to have some days of school, otherwise this whole quarter will be pretty worthless.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
