I can’t believe Tuesday is the first day of school. Where did our summer go?!? I’m not on top of back to school shopping this year but I have it under control. We had to do a last minute backpack … Continue reading
For all of the other Ontario parents sending kids off today, happy first day of school! Today L moved up to Grade 1 while E started JK. Of course that called for a front lawn photo shoot! I’m happy to … Continue reading
Today is L’s last day of senior kindergarten. I can’t believe how quickly the last year has flown by! And look and how much older she looks! My little girl isn’t so little anymore! Want to take your own end … Continue reading
I don’t usually reblog my own posts but with back to school just around the corner (at least for Ontario kids), I figured it was perfect timing to share the first day of school signs I created last year. I’ll … Continue reading
Yesterday was L’s last day of junior kindergarten. I can’t believe how quickly the year went! At the beginning of the year, I took photos to commemorate the milestone… …so of course I did the same with the last … Continue reading
I’m super excited about the end-of-year gifts L gave to her teachers – personalized white boards! We started with some dollar store materials: white boards ($3 each), foam letters ($1.25/pack – I needed 3 packs to get enough ‘n’s), wooden … Continue reading
How is it already the end of April? I feel like I have missed the last couple months!
I am writing this post from 35,000 feet in the air en route to Banff for a conference. When I get back to Toronto, M and I are taking the girls to Niagara for a couple days at Great Wolf Lodge. Everyone is looking forward to some time away.
Starting in May, things are going to finally slow down a little for me. As I shared with you all back in February, I started a new job. What I didn’t mention is that it is only 3 days a week but up until just this week, I was working the new job plus 2 days a week at my old job to wrap things up. I am now officially finished at my old job (although I am continuing with one of my projects as an out-of-office consultant, but that is another story!) and excited for 4 day weekends every week! I am so pumped to have more time for hanging out with the girls, completing projects around the house and attempted improvements to my domestic goddess self (like maybe doing some chores or cooking legit meals).
As if this isn’t enough of a change, I found out earlier in April that I was accepted to do my Masters! I am officially going to grad school in the fall! I’m a little nervous about the prospect of going back to school but am also very excited for this challenge and the opportunities it will open up for me.
I will be off the grid for a few days while I’ll be travelling but I’ll check in next week. Enjoy the weekend!
Today was L’s first day of junior kindergarten so of course I had to commemorate the occasion with a DIY! I made a ‘chalkboard’ “first day of junior kindergarten” sign using Pic Monkey and then put it in a picture frame. … Continue reading
