Top 5: Litterless Lunch Containers

Many schools in Canada implement a Litterless Lunch Rule. The idea is that all of the food your children bring to school is in some variation of reusable container. They have to bring everything home with them, including apple cores! I LOVE this rule. We homeschool so obviously we practice a litterless lunch everyday, but…

Summer 2019 Wrap-Up

We’re days away from September. SEPTEMBER! How did we even get here? This Summer was a whirlwind. Some parts seemed to drag on forever but overall it went super quick. This Summer was also A LOT, so I’m actually pretty stoked to get back into our school year schedule. I may not get the “peace”…

Top 5: Road Trip with Kids Tips

We had 5 days to drive from Trenton, Ontario to Gander, Newfoundland. More than enough time, but we had certain rules to follow because this was a military move and the Canadian Forces has their own way of doing things. Basically we needed to leave and arrive on certain days and that influenced the trip…

The Big Move: Arrived Alive

We have arriiiiiiiiiived! (*Oprah voice) We have officially landed in Newfoundland, and getting here was certainly an adventure! First off, a Move Road Trip and a Leisure Road Trip are two very different beasts. Many things are the same, but a Move adds extra layers of stress. I found that the biggest stressors for me…

The New Newness

This last month went by in a blur. Everyone has been sick. The flu was replaced with a cold that has (currently) been replaced by an even worse cold.

Let’s be honest though, I’m pretty busy parenting. I mean, there are so many of them… We’ve actually been busy this Summer considering how painfully hot it’s been.…

Big Kids At The Park

I don’t think I’m the only parent that prefers an empty park. Who tries to avoid the after school rush when possible. When your kids are still small it can be fairly stressful and frustrating. Sometimes there are pushy kids, bitey kids, sand throwers, and grabbers. Sometimes there are snot covered kids, and kids who…

Lazy Days of Summer

I’m terrible at blogging in the summer. The days are long and lazy. Something in the sunshine fuels my daydreams but not my creativity. Not like the crisp of Autumn, which fuels my mind and hands. So what have we been up to for the last three months? What has filled our humid summer days?…

Apple Feeders

Happy Autumnal Equinox! (or Happy Mabon to those who call it so) The equinox started last night but today is the first official day of Autumn! The more I search for my own spiritual path in this world the more drawn to the earth I feel. I can’t call myself a Pagan per say, but…
