Be Quiet

Although, I’ve only written a few articles or stories in my lifetime; each time I have a story in mind, I test it out on my family. They are given a brief outline and then because they are part of the stories I have in mind, I ask them if what I am recalling from our real life stories is accurate and whether they mind if they are included in the story. I did this last Friday in

Children Singing

I tried to think of a favourite childhood
Christmas memory that I could share with you, the families and friends of Cedar Grove Childcare, but there were few and somehow so insufficient. So I asked as many people as I could if they would write something that is getting to their heart this Christmas season, a favourite memory that they would like to share. There was one who was willing and I’m so grateful because writing these life

Family Summer Vacation

Summer is here! Many are starting to get the final details worked out for their annual family vacation, quite
possibly with a positive anticipation that it will be the best family vacation ever! For our family, summer vacation planning starts with figuring out the destination, where we are going to camp (our favourite type of summer vacation), and which family or friends we can meet up with along the way or at our final destination.

Oh, You Thought I Was Done!?

“Oh, you thought I was done!? No, we still have something to do … Shhh, first we need to make sure no one is here. Go look around the corner and check.”

April: “What, why, where … what are we doing?!!”

“We’re racing to the Director’s office and back, but the only way we can do it is to skip.”

April: “What!! No. I’m

What Happened Here?!

Do you ever ask yourself that question? Do you look at what’s going on around you and ask ‘What Happened Here … How Did This All Happen?’ I ask it occasionally, and at a leadership dinner the other night the question came up again.

It all started in 2005 when I started looking for daycare for my youngest daughter when she was almost a year old. Like most parents I worried about the character of the people that

A Simple Story

“Mom, Mom, tell me again!!”
I smile, “Honey, I’ve told you this story twice already on this trip”
“Again, please Mom!”
It’s only been a thirty minute car ride but she wants to hear one of her stories again for the third time. I don’t mind telling it again, it’s one of my favourites, but I put on a show, let out a long sigh and say, “Okay, honey, but this is the last time today ”
