2 Years

 Mom: Mataya! You are 2 years old!

M(ataya): I really like being 2, mom. In fact I have been trying it out for a few weeks already, just so I would be prepared for when I actually turned 2.

Mom: Oh, you mean those full-out-throw-yourself-on-the-floor-temper-tantrums you have been having lately? I have noticed.
M: I do like being a big girl though. There are lots of things I can do for myself and most of the time you understand what I am trying to tell you. I like to sing and do silly things that make you laugh. And I love to be outside. I had forgotten how nice warm weather is. But how come you won't let me wear shorts every day? I don't want to wear pants any more.

Mom: Some days it is just not warm enough for you to wear shorts. It is not quite summer yet, but it is getting close. What else is new in your world?

M: I have some new teeth, so my smile is a bit more filled in. I am pretty good at stringing a few words together into little sentences. I am also
 starting to have a bit of an opinion about what I wear and I especially like pretty things. I like to colour and write with markers and pencils.

Mom: You certainly are quite the artist already. I enjoy seeing what you create and how you will colour in all of the little things on a page.  What do you like to do outside?
M: I like to play in the sand box and walk around and point out all of the pretty flowers. I also like to go the park and go on the swings and slide. I could go down the slide for the whole time I am there.

Mom: I am thankful for little slides that you are able to do pretty much on your own. It is fun to see you grow up. I love you Mataya!

M: I love you too, Mom!

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…
