Reading week quickly came to an end and before I knew it we were loading up the car with kids and luggage to head back to school. Saturday we dropped Ivy and Declan off in Waterloo before heading to Toronto. Mom and Elle spent the night with me because Elle had her last official India meeting before she leaves on FRIDAY!!!! We are all extremely jealous! She is going to be the first person in our family to travel to India where she is going to be spending a little more than two weeks teaching children English and touring the country.
Sunday morning we woke up bright and early to drop Elle off at school and then Mom and I went out for coffee. Our go to spot has been Bobette and Belle but we wanted to try something new so we walked across the street into a little bakery called Patisserie Sebastien. Let me just say it was extremely French and delicious. Mom and I both got lattes and a croissant to share. That was our first mistake and we ended up ordering another croissant and more lattes. The chef was French, so Mom made me order in French just so she could listen to me (it was extremely awkward lol).
We did some shopping at Yorkdale and after we picked up Elle we returned so that she could buy a few more things for her trip. Mom dropped me off at school in the early afternoon and they left for home. The rest of the afternoon I did some reading in my window sill as it was so nice and sunny and I watched The Zookeeper’s Wife. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it! It’s on Netflix, so watch it while it’s there.
Today was a regular Monday, except my school is bustling as there is a very high chance that we will be going on strike as of next Monday. I really hope that it is avoided so that we can just continue the semester as normal, but it doesn’t seem like my wishes will come true. As many of you know I have been working extremely hard on a piece for my art class and I have been trying to get as much as possible finished in case we do strike. Today I finished about 4 more panels and I am super excited to share what I have finished so far with all of you. (A huge thank you to my Aunt Chris for helping me pick out the best paint!)
I hope that you all have a fabulous week! Talk soon,
