I have been meaning to do it for quite some time now, and I've finally done it! What, you ask? It's at the bottom of my blog. It's only just begun, as I'm sure I've got hundreds of additions yet to put on, but it's a start. For the love of reading, check it out!

I don't really have a lot to say, but I do have a wee bit of time, so I thought I would just check in. This week has been spring break which means that I have my boys at home with me, our family is one and complete this week. This is just the way I like it and how we function the best. Being that my family is everything to me, I just hate sending my kids to school. I hate being away from them. Period. I enjoy their complany, yes even my oldest's non-stop chattering!!! They are different children when they are not influenced by the public school system. There is no mean-ness, hardly any fighting, and all of the "omg, did you just say that" things just disappear. Yes, they are definately influenced by the public school system and it really makes me wonder what the next years will bring if it's already happening now. It also makes me wonder how I made it through and did ok?? It's a tough, tough world out there. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to bubble my kids (well, ok, I DO, but I know better), I just want what's best for them, at all cost. They are in school to learn and they learn best from other children. Strong parenting skills are necessary in order to filter out all of the unwanted stuff that they gather. That, and an amazing, open relationship with my boys. Which I have, thank God.
I got my mark back from my latest course. I struggled with keeping my head in this one. It was painfully boring to me. I did realize that I never, as long as I live, want to have ANYTHING to do with book keeping. NOTHING. So anyway, after a whole lot of stress, anxiety and worry, I received an A!!! So now I have to choose an elective. I'm thinking of taking aboriginal studies and am pretty excited to get going on it. I am going to take a break, however, and get caught up on some of the amazing books that have been patiently waiting for me. I have a vest on the needles that is begging me to finish (I'm sooooo close), so that'll happen soon. I have been helping my gf line home made bags. This has been so much fun. I have discovered that I'm really not bad with a sewing machine, either!
Oh! And my most exciting news of all..........our holidays are booked!!! 8 sleeps in the beautiful, remote, phone-free, door-bell free Duck Mountains. To say that I'm excited is an understatement. I live and breathe for cabin life. For remoteness, for water, for wilderness. It's truly what centres me. I can not WAIT to enjoy just having my 3 boys around me, all to myself for that matter, for 8 full days. I hate to rush the summer, but GOSH I can't wait til August!
