From the classroom...

The (School) Year in Review…

Today is the first official day of summer vacation. As is our tradition, we started our morning at the pool, which is helping with the melancholy mood my children are feeling after closing the door on school for the year…

It is a testament to their teachers over the last ten months that they are so sad about moving on. Even with the prospect of family field trips and free time my little people are finding it hard to let go!

In celebration of all those months of learning we have combed through the school scrapbooks many times.  These are some of our favourite moments…





“Aaah, summer – that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It’s a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swimming strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends.” (Darell Hammond)

    • Their pictures always make me happy. You should see the playroom – second day of holidays and already a tornado of creativity! You were amazing at the wedding – thank you for being such a gift to us!


    • In spite of the sad goodbyes we are all looking forward to getting back to our various hobbies! Summer is an oasis of time for us – even though we will (mostly) be staying home the flexible schedule creates a world of possibility! My list maker has a never ending agenda for our free time though, so we can’t do much “lounging”. We are looking forward to hearing about your summer adventures too – it’s fun to be along for the journey!
