a dash of motherhood… a sprinkle of homeschooling… and a pinch of photography ( with a side of compassion )

5 days of Canadian field trips… day 4

We have been having a crappy summer … lots of rain and very cool with a few exceptions

A creative and indoor outing is to a ceramic art studio


They are all over the place now … I think it is a new trend


If you have kids that like painting or being creative this is a great afternoon outing especially on a rainy day🙂

5 days of Canadian field trips… day 1


Let me kick start this 5 day series with the parliament of canada !


This is a great field trip for kids studying the government … I would suggest maybe 8 years and up …depending on the child and their interest in architecture and /or government  as they not only learn about the government but the building itself is really beautiful to visit and learn about.

oh and  by the way it is FREE just be careful as it fills up fast during tourist season and they have limited spaces for visits and close early in the afternoon.



Canada Day ideas

Canada Day is just around the corner🙂

We like to go see the fireworks … but other then that we take advantage of the day  to just be together and enjoy what ever local activities we stumble upon. From outdoor concerts to festivals… there is always something fun to see and do on Canada Day🙂

We tend to have a relaxing family day and try to make some fun summer cool treats such as this neat cold treat  :)

freeze bananas for a few hours  and then toss in blender with a few raspberries … taste just like raspberry ice cream🙂 really creamy, completely raw, vegan and delicious!

and happy Canada Day!
