It was a crazy busy week last week of movie premiers and parent/teacher conferences. We ran off to a friend’s house in the country to enjoy the foliage but it was covered with snow by Sunday! Here are some snaps from IG of some of the highlights :

Well this month has started off with a bang yes? With election results not quite what some of us had hoped for but then again, the future always seems to be in discord and full of surprises, right?
A public figure so vocal about his misogyny, anti-Muslim, anti-Mexican, anti-handicap, anti-climate change is just shocking. I hope he can be subdued..
But now that it’s all been said, we cannot even trust the subdued.
I know we are not the only people who witnessed frightened children on Wednesday morning – many of whom couldn’t understand how the school-yard bully somehow came out on top. Because name calling and making fun of people – that’s something that we adults try not to do, and try to teach our children not to do.
It was a hard lesson to try to teach… that sometimes the person picking on people comes out on top?
I feel like I do when my kids get into a class with a ‘meh’ teacher: like I have to work harder to be constantly on the pulse of what is going on, and not let a single thing slide. Watching, reading, ready for action. When my kids luck out with a great teacher for the school year, I can sit back and coast with the confidence that someone is working with my kids on a similar wave length to that of my own.
Now there will be no auto pilot for awhile – I guess that’s the most tactful way I can put my feelings down about all this post election grieving and anxiety.
For now I hope to stay buoyant with a walk or hike (hopefully) this weekend to look at foliage, before it’s gone.
Try to enjoy the weekend friends.
