Glow stick fun!!!

As an extra treat in the hotel tonight I bought a few packs of glow sticks from Dollarama,
and after the pool, I filled the bath tub for Sam and then put them in the bath for him.  This is something I saw on Pinterest :)  

It was really beautiful with the lights off and the room lit up by glow sticks - the water lit up by them :)  

Fun :)

We are having a fun Spring Break - looking forward to tomorrow - we get breakfast here and a late checkout before heading to a homeschool park day with friends....then Abby and Sam are off to their Dads for the evening and I am off to pub quiz :)  

I hope Laurence is having a fun night with his friends - poor Rosie in a house full of teens....sigh :)  

Our Wednesday.....

Abigail had a class at the library today, so we headed there and spent an hour or so hanging out, while she enjoyed her class.  She loved it and came out with a box of candy too!!  A friend of hers was in the class as well :)  

Susannah read and Sam played on the computers, before joining us and looking through a book on 'treasure' with me - and we learmed all about the Royal Jewels  and about treasure and why people were buried with gold and treasure through history etc etc...

After the library we did some shopping and I popped in to make my appointment with Sandy to get my taxes done...I am so not organized this year!  Too busy and distracted by other things I guess!  

A few errands ready for this evening...home to check on Laurence and his friends, and then we were off!!  A while ago we got a great deal on a night in a hotel in town - I bought it because it was REALLY cheap.  It was for 4 people for a night in a hotel with a pool and included breakfast!!  I think it was $50!!  

Anyway I bought the deal and decided to book it for this week - so it was something fun to do during Spring Break.  So glad we did - we are having such a fun time - it is quiet here BUT a couple of other families had the same idea - enough that the kids had other children to play with in the pool - it wasn't busy - but fun for them :)  

One of the highlights for the kids of course is having tv for the night - another treat lol:

Susannah and I relaxed in the hot tub and read:
Abby and Sam enjoyed the pool:

Susannah and I sat by the pool:

1. What's the last job you did that required elbow grease?

Scrubbing paint and dried mod podge from art tables in the classroom :)  

2. March Madness, aka the men's Division I basketball championship, is nearing an end...what sort of 'madness' has your house seen this month?

This house is ALWAYS a mad house - and I LOVE it :)  Abby gave Rosie a hair cut and shaved half her head :)  I  teach art classes to families, children, adults....and it can get crazy here.....we always seem to have extras here at weekends and the house is always full of laughter and chaos...

3. What's your favourite shop for browsing?

Goodwill or The Antiques Mall, or  Junque Cellar on Whyte, or Mars and Venus...or Rowena...or Michaels...

4. Is there ever a time when giving up makes sense?

No....but then perhaps I don't see it as 'giving up'...I see it as 'changing direction'....taking a different path....changing a plan....trying a new way of doing something....looking at things in a different way.  just because something didn't work out doesn't mean it has failed - maybe it just means you have to take a different path....or were meant for a different journey.  

5. What's a song you love that contains the name of a city, state or country in its title?

Probably the one by Train.   Save Me San Francisco.

6. When did you first begin using a computer?

The old BBC Computers at school :)

7. Did you buy girl scout cookies this year? What's your favorite?

I bought some in the Fall from Brandy...I haven't bought any recently - I only like the mint ones...

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I really need to get up and in the shower as we have to head off to Abigails class and then to the hotel!!  Have a great day everyone!

Love this :)
