Day 16: The Challenge heads to small town Ontario

Day 16: The Challenge heads to small town Ontario

Good morning Challengers, it's day 16 and today I am heading to my mom's house for a week, in beautiful Dundas, Ontario. If you've been with the challenge for a few years you're familiar with the annual trip. Actually it was in Dundas that I did the challenge for the first time, and I was challenging myself to stay outdoors for two hours everyday. That wasn't too hard because there are so many beautiful places to go and see, and I have to admit, we spent more than a couple of those days on the tobogganing hill that I used to play on as a child.

This year is going to be quite different though, for one thing, I'll be going by myself, Bobby is going to stay home, he's told me he's ready to be independent with his homeschool, and I've shown him how to share docs, on Google Docs, so we'll see how that goes. 

Usually the trip is for two weeks, but this year it's only for one, because my mom's going to spend the second week at my sister's in Norfolk county. I'm taking mom up there next Saturday, so I'll share a post from there too.

One of my favourite things about mom's house is the big thermometer outside her kitchen window, and let me tell you there were a couple days last year, where knowing the temperature was not inspiring...it was intimidating, but we bundled up, and headed out, and it was worth it. 

So tomorrow I'll have a fun photo for you, and until then- 
have an outdoorsy day.

Your photo prompt for today something big.

Day 30: And we wrap it up for another year
Day 30: And we wrap it up for another year

Even though February was longer than usual this year, it felt like it went by faster, maybe it was the warm weather, with yesterday being the coldest day we had all month. Maybe just the busyness of it, maybe my kids are bigger now, I'm not struggling being shut indoors with Littles. Whichever it was I hope the challenge helped you get through the month too. 

Until next year Challengers...have an outdoorsy day.

Day 29: I think a car prevents outdoors time
Day 29: I think a car prevents outdoors time

Perhaps the reason I made so many stops was because now I have a car, I don't make that walk as often. I think this time last year, I was walking down to the Junction 3 times a week.

Day 28: When life is a cartoon
Day 28: When life is a cartoon

As a favour to those who had to go out to work I said I would brush off the car, then I shovelled our walk, and the best part about it was, I didn`t have to get out of my pajamas. Reminding me of this cartoon my friend made for me.
