First Day of School - 2015

It was Joash's first day of Kindergarten today. Since his school has moved into brand new facilities, the start of school had to be delayed a day until all of the inspections could happen. So today is the day! And today of all days was the one day Joash decided to sleep in instead of getting up at 7 on the dot. So I had to wake him up. But once he remembered that school was starting today, he was pretty excited.
 Mataya was excited too as she thought that she was going to go to school as well. When she was leaving the school with me after we got Joash settled, she said in a very sad voice, "oh dear."
Joash had a lot to say about school during the ride home. He was very excited because there were some tractors to play with and different machinery to hook up to the tractors. They met Sally the Sound Muncher who ate silly things like spiders, snacks, suckers and scissors. And they had story time and had some time to look at books by themselves.

He asked me if I was a bit sad while he was at school or if I was happy. I told him I missed him a little, but mostly I was happy because I knew he was in a place where he would have fun, learn lots of things and learn about God. He said he missed me a little bit too, but mostly he had fun.

That is how it should be.

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.
