School's Out For Summer!

We made it! From the first day of school to the last, these "babies" of mine have finished Grade 1 and 4 with flying colors!


Little Miss do gooder/straight As/junior achiever has already set up "Miss R's classroom" in her bedroom for the summer. And the twinsies finished the school year kicking ass and taking names. There were some bumps along the way, but I could not have asked for a better year overall, finishing with two bright, happy, social boys.

I am so proud of these three shining stars, not to mention myself for getting through my first full school year of many as a M-F working mom. They are ready to take the world by storm - but in the short term we're just going to enjoy a summer of relaxing and refueling their super powers!

Please Help View Royal School!

OMG! It's been almost a month since I blogged last....and what motivates me to do so now? Money!

So I'm making a personal plea. Not just for good wishes, as I often do, but for cash. Cold, hard, cash. I know it was just last September that I hounded you for CP (don't worry I'm not doing it again this year) but here I go asking again for a different cause...

My three kids' amazing school is trying to build an accessible, inclusive playground/outdoor classroom. Given the state of education in our province, please don't ask why the school board isn't paying for this. PLEASE. Because you know there's barely enough funds to give support to kids, much less build them a new playground.

So our school is fundraising for this all on our own. A lot of money is needed, friends. A lot of money. But look at this thing - it's amazing! It will leave a legacy at our school, and in our community! Not to mention a completely accessible spot for Asher, Nolan, and a whole school full of great kids.

Would you consider donating, any small amount, to this cause? You get a tax receipt if you donate $20 or more! Yes indeed, we're not "GoFundMe-ing" - we're registered through CanadaHelps. It's really easy to donate - I can vouch because I've done it already!

If you have it in your hearts to donate, our family, and several hundred other View Royal families would appreciate it immensely. And if you do, would you mind shooting me a quick message so I know to thank you?

Right here. Credit card and a couple of clicks. Aaaaaand GO! https://www.canadahelps.org/dn/27536
