Apple Picking with the Girls

Wendy was invited to go on a winery tour with some friends on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. I don’t drink wine (as it is a migraine trigger), but I do love to cook with wine. However, I didn’t feel me going on a wine tour would make any sense. So, Wendy and I decided to divide and conquer. She goes on the wine tour,...

A PD Day with Big Daddy

Isn’t amazing how PD / PA days sneak up on you? Even though Wendy an I had it on our calendar, we didn’t stop to think about what we were going to do with the girls for the day.

Making the Right Decisions

Last Monday, I met the girls at the bus stop after school. We chatted as we walked home, like we do every day. I asked them what they did today that made their day great, and what their favourite part of the day was. They each took turns telling me how their day was. When we got home, the girls unpacked their lunch bags, and...
