A Closet Full

You know how we like to get a deal on things (see here and here for examples). Well, I feel like I got an okay deal on some things this past week. I am a member a group on Facebook called Charlottetown Kids Buy, Sell, Swap. It a great place to post things that you are either looking for or want to get ride of. You have to act quickly though. Most things are snatched almost as soon as they are posted. I always look for things for Joash, but have never had very much luck.

Until this week. I had noticed a lot of boys clothes, but was too late to get it. Then the seller reposted, saying the original buyer had changed her mind. So I jumped on it and got it. It was as a set of  18-24 months clothes, which I know Joash will grow into. The next say, I saw another seller posting a lot 12-18 month boys clothes. I just happened to be looking shortly after she posted it, so no one had commented on it yet. So, I did and as I was looking at her other pictures, I noticed she had a winter coat, snow pants, and a small lot of 18-24 month clothes. I made her an offer for all of it, which she excepted. 

So, Joash is pretty much clothed for the next year. I would like to get him a winter church outfit and he may need a few more pairs of pants and pajamas, but for his everyday clothes, he is set. He will also need some shoes, but I don't really see the point of getting shoes until he starts walking, so I am waiting on that as well. Hurray for good deals!

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!


I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

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…
