You know it’s going to be a good session when your family shows up looking like they stepped out of a magazine! I absolutely adore the kids outfits, the jacket with plaid elbows is hands down one of my favourite boys outfits of the year. Plus they brought the personalities to go with the style. Sweet but cool all in the same breath. Sassy little Avery took a little while to warm up to the idea but I managed to get plenty of smiles out of her.
Paul and Mellany made the decision to home school their kids, something I hear about more and more these days and something I have considered. I was amazed at the interest they had for all the various plant life we passed along the trails. Myles and Brendan kept us entertained with their stories and knowledge, I’m pretty sure I didn’t retain all the info so I’m not going to attempt to name off any of the things they “tried” to teach me. It’s a good thing there isn’t a pop quiz. One lesson I did take from the day is how much patience and endurance it takes to homeschool your children, I applaud you Mellany, it’s so wonderful to give your kids the opportunities you have.
It was such a pleasure meeting all of you. Happy Holidays!
