Back to School

Today was the girls first day back to school.  My six year old was very excited to start grade two.  My eight year old was not as excited but she still seemed okay with going back.  She is in grade four this year.  I cannot believe how quickly this time goes.  Here are pictures I took of them this morning as we waited for the bus.

In other news we are enjoying fresh tomatoes and corn on the cob from the garden  field of weeds. Seriously, it is amazing I get anything from the garden you literally have to search through the weeds to find the plants.  But we are definately enjoying the fresh vegetables.  Home grown tomatoes are so much better than store bought ones.  I do have more than we can eat so I will have to can or freeze some this week.  I also have a bunch of apples that I picked from my father-in-laws tree that I am slowly dealing with (freezing, eating, and baking).

My son is getting more mobile (still not actually crawling, but he moves around a lot) and he loves attention, so he keeps me pretty busy as well.  With school starting I look forward to having more of routine and hopefully I will find time to fit in some exercise.

Here's to a good school year for everyone: children, parents and teachers.


  1. It took me a second to figure out where they were getting on the bus. (I was thinking it was in the yard where the road splits to go around the house, and I was wondering why they didn't wait until the bus got to the front of the house. It wasn't until I saw the picture on the tracks that I realized it was on the main road.)

  2. Yeah, I am a mean mom and make my kids walk out to the road for the bus. It's not like it is far but sometimes they are waiting for a while as it doesn't always come at the same time.

  3. It's not so bad now. I would imagine it's cold in January. :)
