First Week of Fourth Term


Hello Sub 20 degree temperatures. We turned the solar heating on the pool on last Thursday and the water got up to 25 degrees so the kids got their first swim of the season. The heatings off again now that we are back to winter weather again. Thursday is forecast to be 13 ... brrr!

Hello last term of the school year which is always really busy.

Hello change of schedule. All the kids activities except The Boy and Little Girl's tennis on Friday afternoon are changed this term. The Little Girl has gone up to intermediate squad and is now doing two 1.5hr and one 1 hour swimming squad sessions a week but soccer is finished. The Big Girl starts a new basketball season as well. She's moved up from Div 7 to Div 4 and is now playing with a couple of friends from school. Looking at the schedule I think this term will be a bit easier than last term. 

Hello violin shop. The Little Girl broke her violin string tonight so I need to go early tomorrow morning and see if they can fix it before her rehearsal tomorrow afternoon. She'll have to go to the practice anyway because we are supposed to take her friend home with us after the practice. Luckily it's the first rehearsal of three.

Hello Birthday Party. Now the holidays are finished we're having the Little Girl's birthday party. Seven girls on Saturday afternoon. Hubby flies in from China in the morning so we're praying there's no hold ups.

Hello 1000th blog post. This is it.

Last Thursday was the first official swim of the season for us too - how crazy is it set to be this week?!

I have to say, this year I am in a spin thanks to Daylight Saving time - feel as though I have a really fuzzy head!

Anyway, congratulations on reaching 1000 posts, it is always a pleasure drop by over here and without fail you provide some of the best web links of all! :-)
