Things have been really quiet over here lately. Life has been busy and lots of stuff going on, so my little space of the internet ended up getting pushed aside for a little while. I hope to be back more regularly in 2017.
This week was the kids Christmas concert at school. The organizers did a wonderful job, and the kids....wow, they gave it their all.
They offered 2 concerts, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I opted for the morning show, and it was packed. From friends, I heard the afternoon was packed as well. It was so nice to see all the kids and they were fantastic.
Mr. K's class did 2 songs (one english and one french). Mr. J played a voyageur, so he actually wasn't out for very long. His role came right before the last song (the Huron Carol). It was so lovely to see them though.
When the kids came home from school, Mr. J was grinning from ear to ear. There was a school board employee at the morning concert, and he donated a 4 pack of Ottawa Senators tickets to be raffled off....well, Mr. J won! So, he got to enjoy his very first NHL game last night.
This last week before Christmas is always a crazy one. Lots of running around (helping my mom get ready) and lots of tiny things to finish up before Saturday. I try and avoid going out on the 24th, but my mom always needs a couple of items picked up at the store, so I get up super early and hit the stores when they open (between 6 and 7 am) to avoid the crazy crowds and people grumpy with the line ups.
