Right now we're just coming out of a cool summer week. It's been highs of 20C (68F) and lows around 12C (53F). It's been sunny but a little cool, which has been such a blessed relief after the heat of last week. "Heat" for us is defined as around 30C (86F), which I know for most of you sounds positively glorious. Next week we'll be back to highs in the high 20s and low 30sC (80sF). I love it because it's not (usually) too hot to be outside and enjoy the weather.
Sam and I in October 2013.
Winter is the one season I'm not crazy about here. Lately we've been getting some pretty cold temperatures (-30C (-22F)) and a ton of snow. And it sometimes starts as early as mid-November and doesn't really end until mid-March -- that's about a month too long in my opinion. These past few winters have been hard with young kids, especially taking Sam to school and back twice a day. That's been about an hour and a half of being outside every day for Miss Rachel and me. I'm excited that this year I'll get to drop her off too! Walking home by myself will be a treat -- even if it is freezing out!
