Growing Too Quickly

My nieces Olivia and Lily are growing way too quickly for my liking! It's hard to believe that they're already both over one year of age. Olivia is now one year and 5 months old, and Lily is one year and 3 months old. I just thought I'd share a couple of pics to show off my beautiful and awesome nieces. :)

Back to School

Tomorrow I'm heading back to classes at Mount Saint Vincent University. It'll be quite a long day; Classes from 9am-4pm, and then I'm working a shift at Superstore from 5pm-10pm. Last week, I went to my Jr. High School; Tuesday was a Teachers-Only day, and I met all of the staff at my school. Wednesday-Friday the students were at the school as well, and I got to "witness" the first days of school, which was pretty neat. It was a nice couple of days, and I enjoyed being there.

That being said, it has dawned on me that another school year has started. More so, it has dawned on me that this will be my last year at University... possibly ever (unless I do a Masters of some sort in the future, I suppose). That being said, I have less than seven months to go now, and I will be a certified teacher. I am trying not to be overly excited about it, because I know that the next seven months will most likely be the toughest seven months I have had in University/School yet. As much as I am looking forward to classes and especially teaching in practicum, I know that it will be very time consuming and that it will take a lot of dedication and focus. Still, the excitement usually wins over... until I am sleep-deprived, probably. :)

With all that, I wish everyone else in my B.Ed program - and everyone else who is in school, in general - a great start to the new school year, and all the best for the coming months!

Happy Back to School Week!


Weekend in Cape Breton!

September 5th-7th were spent in Cape Breton visiting Malcolm's parents. We had a great time down there, especially because it had been quite some time since I had seen Eddy & Kathleen. We also bought a newlens (50mm portrait lens) for our DSLR Camera. So, between the CB 'reunion' and the new lens, I thought I'd post some shots of the weekend. :)
