What a wonderful Summer...and now back to school......

Can't believe that it is already September and tomorrow is the first day of the new school year. The kids spent the last two months playing with friends, watching a lot of t.v, extra trips to the library for summer reading, swam at the community pool and rode their bikes to the park. We also spent a week in Brechin, near Lake Simcoe for a mini vacation where we rode horses, went boating, fishing and got time to just relax!

Oh, in the middle of all this, we also shifted houses!! We had to, because our son was moving from 8th grade (last year of Middle School) to 9th grade (First year of High School) and we were not happy with the High School that was in our zone. So with the help of the Frasers Report, that ranks the schools in Ontario, we were able to find another house in a bettter school zone and moved in August. The last month we have been settling down in the new house, registering the kids in both their schools (our daughter is in the 6th grade which is the first year of Middle School), getting used to the new area and enjoying the last of the summer vacation.

In my next post I'll write about the High School orientation and what to get for school so your child goes prepared.

My email id is on top of the blog so please write to me if you have any questions.

Thanks for reading!
