Summer Week 6

It's a little difficult for me to believe that we have actually had 6 weeks of summer vacation already. The time just seems to be flying by. Both kids were home with me this week, although Mr. J went for a sleepover at my brothers one night.

Summer 2018 Reading List Update

A few months ago, I wrote about my 2018 reading list - a list of books I was hoping to read before the year finished.  I updated it in February, but then kind of forgot about it - until this week.  The ones that are struck out are the ones that I have read this year.

Summer Week 5

Last week Mr. J was in another soccer camp. This one was a representative camp (competitive); he is planning on trying out for rep next season, and this was a good glimpse of what the competition is like.  He really enjoyed it, but was he ever exhausted. There was a huge difference between the two weeks - it was very apparent they worked them much harder.

Welcome To #BloggersFete 2018 #giveaway

Today is the day! The start of #BloggersFete. A few years ago, I joined with a group of Canadian bloggers to throw a big party in celebration of our individual blogs anniversaries. We had so much fun, we decided to make it an annual event.

This is our FOURTH year! A few of the bloggers have changed over the years, but we are all Canadian, and all very appreciative of our readers.
