Wow! It's been forever since I've last blogged. It's been crazy busy around here, but I think things are finally starting to get back to normal.
I've started school, midterms are actually next week, so I'm studying like crazy! It's going really well, the program is hard, but not too hard. I start my first placement next month at a retirement home in town. I'm looking forward to it, it'll be nice to get out of the class and actually provide nursing care to real people.Mister M is in grade 1. He's still in french immersion, and still loves school! His morning teacher isn't my cup of tea but luckily his afternoon teacher is great. He'll also get some valuable life lessons on working with people he doesn't like. Which is always good. He's started an art class at the local art school (not the one at the YMCA this one is more involved, less for little kids). He goes to his second class Saturday and he's going to be working with clay, which he's excited for!D-Man is in full time daycare, and it was super rough at the start. It took him almost three whole weeks before he wouldn't cry for the entire day. It was so bad that the lady said that she wasn't sure if she could handle him anymore, but luckily he's accepted that he needs to go there, and that Mama will always be back for him. So now it's actually nice for him to go, he gets to play with other kids and learn about sharing and not being the spoiled baby of the house.Halloween is coming up! We're excited, I'm taking both boys out this year, Mister M is dressing up as a vampire, and D-Man is dressing up as Yoda. Value Village is awesome for costumes, they get in so many new ones a year that it's hard to pick just one to be!Last weekend was thanksgiving, I hosted this year, made all the food for the entire family. 3 roasted chickens, squash soup, cheddar and bacon mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, stuffing and 5 pies! Hardly anything was left over.Fall is my favourite time of year, it's cool but not cold, the air is fresh, the leaves are beautiful. We went for our annual walk through the woods last weekend, snake hunting. Both boys had a blast. D-Man even walked the whole way himself. They explored, got dirty and found 10 snakes and 1 salamander. My dad came along with us, and helped Mister M hold the snakes and the salamander so that I didn't have too lol.
Hopefully now that we're back on track I'll be able to keep up with this blog a bit more, and I hope that it won't be another month before I'm able to post next!
