Fall

Pinecone art and make an Advent wreath

Last Monday we had fun collecting pinecones on our hike and decorating them and making an advent wreath.  Advent wreaths are a tradition very common in Europe. In my home country of Norway, we would light a candle and cite a poem by Inger Hagerup. 1. Candle for joy, 2 for hope and joy, 3 for longing, hope and joy.  4 candles lighted for longing, hope, joy and peace – but first and foremost for Peace on earth

November guide

Some days, when I find myself looking out the window seeing fall's dark, rainy and cold weather, I have to muster the motivation to pull out the necessary warm layers for the darkening season. Though it sometimes isn’t very appealing, we still try to get out every day. Even if it is just walking to school, playing at the playground, playing in the leaves or some old fashioned puddle jumping. Add a comment

Happy Fall ! Fall activity guide

It is that time again, shorter days and less sunlight.  For me, fall is Canada’s number one season.  If you ever think about visiting Toronto make sure you visit in the fall.  Fall in Toronto is warm days and gorgeous nights with beautiful fall foliage and harvest bounty for the farmers markets.

Leaf Shirt

We had some friends over today in our yard, kind of a rescheduling of events because it was raining last Thursday.  We still got outside on Thursday, but we were unable to do this craft. We gathered leaves and then the kids assembled them, along with sticks and whatever else they wanted, on t-shirts.
