I had no idea Ottawa has sand dunes. I'm going to check it out. Thanks for sharing.



Comment on Euro2018: Walking up the Eiffel Tower by Elizabeth

Sat, 07 Apr 2018 18:56:51 +0000

What a wonderful, ambitious plan! I am all admiration... When I went to Paris with the family four years ago, we were determined to walk up the Eiffel Tower. Sadly, it was closed to visitors on the only two days we could have managed it. We consoled ourselves with a climb to the top of the Arc de Triomphe instead, from where we had a spectacular view of the Paris avenues radiating from the arch, and of course, a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower not too far away. My daughter later mused that perhaps the one place in Paris from where you wouldn't be able to see the Eiffel Tower would be when on the Tower itself... In the end, we were happy enough to have done the Arc de Triomphe. One day, I will build up my strength and go back and tackle the Eiffel Tower.

I have mixed feelings about this too. I was never big into fibbing to the kids about Santa and the Easter Bunny, but at the same time, now that our youngest is on the cusp of non-belief (she's also 10), I feel kind of sad about it. It'll be easier, but somehow the magic is less. Ah well.



Comment on This explains *everything*! I’m an ENFP. by Amy Johnson

Wed, 14 Mar 2018 22:17:19 +0000

I'm an ENFP wife, mother, pastor, professor, tutor, and crocheter (with an Etsy store). I CANNOT STAND housework. It is such a challenge for me! Organizing, cleaning, and cooking are the worst for me. Luckily, I married someone with whom I share household management, and my children are now teenagers and can contribute. Still, the housework stuff weighs me down! On a bright note: I crocheted a whole baby blanket yesterday during the snow day! LOL!

Hey Dani! We are going to London & Paris this summer too! We are totally are last minute planners! I will definitely be taking advantage of these posts. So thanks!! Last April my sister was able to win “the lottery” and actually got a half decent number in the virtual line for Harry Potter and the cursed child play and we were able to buy tickets. My sister gave the tickets to the girls for Christmas and Sandy and I gave them the trip. They are beyond excited...as am I. So thanks for sharing your planning tips and tricks! Happy Planning!

That sounds amazing Katherine! I am loving the planning process - and it's less stressful than ACTUAL traveling. ;)



Comment on A few thoughts on maximizing nutrition in holiday food drive donations by DaniGirl

Funny you mention this Allison. At our school council meeting, we discussed this with regard to the St Mark food drive, and the students who organize it were told that this is true for the larger food banks such as the Ottawa Food Bank, but the local food cupboards and, in their case, the Shepherds of Good Hope, welcome donations as well.

These are great tips regarding booking flights as we are planning a trip to Europe in the fall for a river cruise! Thanks! The idea is one week on the water and then one week driving around to see other sites. They say half the fun of the trip is the anticipation and planning - so here's to the planning!

Very helpful, although I almost always do the cash donation thing because I know food banks can stretch a dollar into way more food than i can.

That's so fun Carly! You've got me excited all over again!! I hear you on the Paris metro being confusing. In 1995 when I was travelling solo, I entirely missed my flight home because I got tangled up in the RER!

All four of us just went to Paris and London in October. I definitely prefer the overnight flight on the way there and may have slipped the kids a gravol to get them to sleep on the flight. Hubby and I were tired as we didn't sleep as much as we would have liked, but it was so much easier to acclimatize the kids to the time change by having them sleep on the plane. We flew Air Canada from Ottawa, through Montreal, as there was no better option cost-wise. We went to Paris first (my brother lives there) and stayed in an Air BnB. You can't check into to most of them until after 3 pm, so we booked it for the day before so we'd be able to go straight there when we landed. While the kids snacked and explored a bit, we took a short nap then got on with our day. I was very impressed with how quickly the kids adapted, even becoming accustomed to eating dinner past 8 pm regularly! We took the Eurostar through the chunnel to visit London (where we were lucky enough to stay with friends) and it was awesome. I loved the train! So clean, quiet and free (though sometimes spotty) wi-fi throughout the ride. Even though I'm fluently bilingual and we spent a lot of time with my brother who speaks like a native, I still found London much easier to navigate. Better signage throughout their public transportation options made it a breeze to get around. In Paris we used Uber a lot because their metro was confusing to us. And while we'd been to Paris before, this was our first trip to London and I'm already dying to go back. It was amazing. So happy you're getting to experience it again soon!!!
