An Ending and a Beginning

So tomorrow starts school. We ended the summer with a big smash going to the Canadian National Exhibition. This is something we try to do every year although we missed last year.

We all thought this was our best year ever, but I’m pretty sure we say that every year. We stayed longer than we had planned because we were enjoying ourselves so much.

Healthy Simplicity - An Ending and a Beginning

On the one hand this feels like it’s been a long, lazy summer. On the other hand it feels like just a couple of days ago that we ended the 2013-2014 school year. I have to say that this has been a relaxing summer. We’ve done parks and picnics and library time and games. We’ve watched “Cupcake Wars” and tried to guess who the winner would be.

I’m feeling ready to start school which is so much better than dreading it as I have other years. I’m looking forward to tomorrow. I’m starting my three-year-old on a preschool programme. I’ll let you know how that’s going in a couple of weeks. This year I also have my first senior. It hardly seems possible that the little girl I could hardly wait to start school is now on her last year.

I hope your summer was refreshing too and that you’re ready for a busy, happy Fall.

      The EX is a great tradition. Every year is unique for what we experience. I know I’ll enjoy this week and my youngest students will. I’m hoping the older ones do too. 🙂
