Year 3: Exploring Countries and Cultures, O Canada!

     That was a very, very quick trip to Canada.  We didn't even get to have a Canadian feast to bid farewell to all the provinces!  (We just have so much going on, I didn't get a chance to even figure out what to make.)  You can also tell that we didn't get to decorate as much.  This was the quickest thing I could come up with to welcome my kids to Canada as they "crossed the border" into the dining room.

     I suppose our journey through Canada went so quickly because we had a few appointments during Week 7 and we brought homeschooling with us. Then, I was out of town during the end of Week 8, so I didn't get a chance to really close the week out with the kids.  However, I was blessed to be at our church's Women's Retreat and therefore had to call a sub:

The Principal reading aloud to our students.
          By the way, the sub made them do jumping jacks before they sat down and got to work.  They got a kick out of that!

     What both kids enjoyed about Canada was learning the French words.  They were fascinated with it and kept trying to carry on a conversation with the limited vocabulary they learned.  We finished currently reading YWAM's Cameron Townsend and I feel like my kids would be ones who would love to translate the Bible in another language.

     While at the retreat, I got to hear wonderful testimonies from a few lovely women and even received prophetic prayer.  I'd love to share that story with you sometime, but I'll save that for a separate post.

This is where our retreat was.

This was waiting for me when I got home.

     That's about it.  A bit short, eh?
