Questions I Asked My Kids: Ep64

US Gun debates are running wild around the world. Education reform is stirring up some strong emotions here in Nova Scotia. Change is needed in both places and I feel like those with the most power to make those changes happen aren’t listening to the ones who know what changes need to be made.

But that stuff is too heavy for a Jeudi. That’s French for Thursday. I substituted in a French Immersion class yesterday and today and the little ones had a blast trying to teach me some pronunciations. Guess it’s time I start taking some French courses!

Pouvez-vous parler français?

Questions I Asked My Kids: Ep61

January was a slow month. It only had 9 posts. February will be different. I’ll kick it into high gear. Or at least a couple gears higher. Preferably not reverse or neutral. But I’ll save those stats for Monday’s State of Blog Address.

As for tonight, I’m going to enjoy the silence that is as sweet as the birthday cake flavored ice cream I’m eating. The kids are finally in bed. Putting them to bed is akin to wrestling gators. The gators don’t like it and by the time you’re done you’re both lucky to have survived.

But for now, here are a few laughs…
