Up until recently, Morningstar Mill has best been known to me as the place to park to get to Decew Falls. Sure, we have stopped in and checked out the mill quickly before or after our hike, and found it quite adorable, but I had no idea that they still operated the mill. And I … Continue reading Milling day at Morningstar Mill
Sometimes traveling goes really, really smoothly. Other times, not so much. This was one of those other times. We waved good bye to our little corner of Paris and headed to the RER station. My husband was purchasing our tickets (we bought them as we went because we primarily walked- yes, we did a LOT … Continue reading My worst day of travel. Ever.
After two days of trekking outside of Paris, we were all excited to have a day in the city. We had a slow start to our day, having stayed at Disneyland Paris until just before closing the night before. A day to sleep in and take our time was warranted. We took the metro to … Continue reading Endless museums and delicious foods in Paris, France
After complaining last week about how difficult of a time we were having getting back into the homeschooling groove, this week has been a dream! We're back to breezing through Beast Academy (our math curriculum), we printed out this awesome puzzle of Canada from CBC Parents, and today we took homeschool out of the house to … Continue reading Visiting Fort George
Travelling with a gifted kid may seem like something only a crazy person would do. Between overexcitabilities and the fact they these kids never seem to turn off, it's difficult to just make it through the day . When would you even have the time to plan a vacation when you're parenting a gifted kiddo?! But what … Continue reading Travelling with gifted kids
I am finally getting around to finishing my posts about our lovely trip to Europe! While I had written most of them while we were there, it was pretty difficult to edit them and post as we went, especially as I was operating solely on wi-fi because Canadian data plans are the worst. So please excuse the time … Continue reading Disneyland Paris
My sister and I woke up at 6 am in a state of determination. We were in Paris, damnit! And we weren't going to let a bit of dirt (and okay, mold) get in our way. There was a laundromat downstairs and there were cleaning supplies in the apartment, we'd simply have to bring things … Continue reading Chateau de Versailles and Paris, France
We woke up early to head to London and see the Tower of London, London Bridge, and Tower bridge. We didn't have time to do a tour of the Tower of London, but it was awesome to see! It was a nice morning walk followed by a ride in the underground to catch the drizzly-day … Continue reading London to Paris: C’est la vie
My only absolute requirement for our trip to Europe was a day in Bath. Total disclaimer: I love Jane Austen, but researching the town made me want to go whether she wrote about it or not. A Unesco World Heritage Site (The Roman Baths) and strict building regulations makes it a picturesque tourist town. Just … Continue reading A day in Bath
Waking up in another country has been the best experience of my life. Kaleb slept a total of 5 hours. Total. On a plane. Sitting up. But who can sleep when you have a city to explore? We got the train into the city, got apologized to because they thought we were American (shhh they … Continue reading London, Baby!
