Gideon 13 Months

M(om): Gideon! What are you doing?

G(ideon): Just exploring, Mom. I love to explore everything. I love to climb and see what I can get into.

M: You certainly are good at getting into everything. I never quite know where I am going to find you.  And you seem quite pleased with yourself no matter what you are doing. What else do you like to do?

G: I like to be outside a lot too. There are so many fun things to see and do and feel. It is great!
M: You do love to be outside. And I like to let you just crawl all around in your coveralls. I have to watch to make sure that you don't eat anything you shouldn't, but overall, you are just full of wonder and joy. Any walking or talking?

G: Not too much. I can get anywhere I want to by crawling and climbing, so I am doing well. And talking...well I think that you understand me pretty much all of the time, even if I don't use actual words. But I can sign "more" and "all done" and I say something that sort of sounds like "all done" while I sign. And I of course can say, "dad" and I said "mama just yesterday and you seemed to really like that.

 M: I did. I am looking forward to hearing you call me "mama" a bit more. What else is new?

G: Hmm...I love my dad and I cry when he goes outside without me. I just like to be part of the action, so I cry a bit when I need to go to sleep too. I don't like being alone, Mom. I like to have people around me.

M: I know, buddy. But it will be okay. What do you like to play with?
G: I like things with wheels and things that make noise. I am also starting to like looking at books, especially ones that have things to touch and feel. If I have a book in bed with me, I often look at it when I wake up in the morning.

M: It is pretty sweet Gideon. Thanks for talking with me for a bit.

G: No problem, 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.

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…

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.



 The little home is full of all sorts of Mo…
