Errand Day

The day started early when we dropped off Kaden for his weekend away:

Kaden and 7 other youth, and 2 parents, are off to a Bible College weekend. Since we were up early anyway we decided to go for breakfast and we used a coupon to get these smoothies:

and a yummy breakfast to go with them:

Today was a province wide PD day but I had to cancel my session on math to attend a followup appointment with a nurse regarding the changes to my MRI last month. I'm thankful the appointment was today so that I didn't have to miss any more school to attend this appointment. I'm thankful Conrad could come with me and help me process everything they had to say. 

Shortly after noon, we had finished the appointment, taken a huge load of my Mom's belongings to donate, took an old computer of ours to eRecycling, and were on our way back home so that Conrad could finish this project:

By the late afternoon, he had finished the gate, the back fence, and cleaned up the garage. It was so nice that the weather was beautiful too!

We went to hot yoga (the early class since we were both off today): 

Then we picked up pizza and watched some Pvr'd tv at home. 

Lots of things checked off our to-do list today.

Staff Meeting

It was our annual visit from the Public Health nurse to discuss medical concerns from our current students. Today she showed us a third type of Epi-pen we might encounter:

She told us that it is cheaper, lasts 18 months (not just 12), and that we will likely see more of these come into use in the future. I have a goal of never having to administer one of these in my career. Fingers crossed that I can reach that goal!

Day and Night

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth....
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

I finally hung the day and night pattern pictures that my Grade 1 friends created last week. After painting a "day" picture and a "night" picture, they cut it into strips and lay them in a pattern. When they are folded into a fan, one direction shows all the day strips and when you look from the other direction you can only see the night strips. It's a cool activity and enforces so many things we are working on at this time in the year: listening skills, cutting skills, glueing skills, and patterns in math, talking about God's creation in Christian Ed, and day and night in Science.
