The kids were twinsies in their matching Portugal shirts
from Oma and Opa at the library program on Friday!
I am fortunate in that I have had the chance to visit every province in Canada and one territory. I've also gotten to live in five Canadian provinces for a significant amount of time. I do worry, that with Canada being so incredibly vast and widespread, that Sam and Rachel will also have this lack of Canadian knowledge and so we bought them a set of book through their school book order. It's called "Canada Close Up" and every province and territory has its own book.
Hallowe'en stuff is out already?!?!
I get annoyed enough that flyers are already advertising
"Back To School" sales and we've only been on summer break for three weeks.
After I finished university, I bought a textbook on Canadian history, and although I gave it away years ago, I've been thinking I need to find another one. So depending on my interest, time, and commitment, I may continue this series after I've done all the provinces/territories with general Canadian knowledge.
I don't know if you'll be bored, entertained, enlightened, or skip reading my blog completely on Tuesdays. It's up to you!
Rachel enjoyed licking an extra large beater
at Donny and Marika's on Saturday!
And let's talk about commenting again. Every blogger handles it differently. I tend to let comments pile up for awhile (I don't intend to do this, but let's be honest about reality here), and then I'll respond to them all at once. If I have your e-mail address, or it's linked to your profile, I respond by e-mail. Otherwise I respond directly to the comment on the post itself. So if you care, you can go back and read them. Or maybe you don't care. I wish there was consistent blog etiquette about blog commenting and how to respond. I know the first rule of commenting etiquette is "Don't wait a month to respond to your blog comments" which is a rule I break All. The. Time. And now I'm done rambling about commenting.
Dave set up our printer with a different computer and,
when he ran a test page, this is what came out.
The kids said that they had been "putting money in the bank."
PS. The random pictures are from the past few days and, although they don't relate at all to this post, I thought they'd make a text-filled post a little more interesting!
