Last night the wind blew hard and it poured rain all night. I love stormy weather. That feeling of,
“Batten down the hatches”
Everyone snuggled safely inside while outside is crazy and wild. I really love days when the fog is so thick, you can’t see anything out your window. I also love thunder and lightning. The way the trees light up when the lightning flashes. Yes, I so LOVE it all.
I get excited and nerves all at the same time. Last night was a reminder for me that it’s soon tropical storm season here in Cape Breton. They predict an active hurricane season this year.
This weather is a big reminder that Fall is around the corner. It’s also another reminder that school is about to begin. Our children will be going back into a public school. It’s a 2 room school that is located up the road from us. This is the very first time we have been excited to send them into the public school system. I will tell you all about this lovely school soon in the days to come.
With the reminder of our older children going back into school, I have been thinking a lot about Silas. He will soon turn 2 and he will have us all to himself for most of the day. I have been pondering some ideas for him with the Montessori environment in mind.
I can’t wait to find some extra time to set up his area into a space where he can learn, play and create. This will be the first time that Silas will not have his older siblings around to entertain him throughout the day. Change will be good for him.
