On the home front…
I wasn’t going to post today because it’s Canada Day and I’m Canadian and Canadians that have paying jobs get the day off work but since I don’t have a paying job, I don’t get the day off work so here I am. My loss is your gain. Okay, maybe not. Sorry. Happy Canada Day anyways.
After four weeks in Europe (and at Wimbledon!), Nanna returns home tomorrow. Which is great news because we start our Summer vacation on Saturday and we’ll be staying at her house. With the entire Zoo. Might just make her wish that she was back in Europe.
After a few weeks of preparations, The Kids started their private swimming lessons today. It was a success. Not from the perspective of “they’ll be swimming champs after a week” but more because they both actually went in the water and tried to float as opposed to sink like rocks. Besides, it’s good for them to be bossed around by someone other than Ed and I.
The Kids had their
first make that second dentist appointment this week. Don’t worry, I blogged about it and will be posting it this week. Because I knew that you were worried.
We celebrated Canada Day on Saturday and it was a huge success. Mainly because we actually showed up on the right day this year. You’d be surprised. Or not.
