As most of you know, my family and I are on a big adventure this year—we’re travelling all over Canada and the U.S. with our 3 kiddos. We left Kingston, Ontario, on August 29th, and we’ve been having a blast exploring Canada ever since.
Sometimes it’s hard to find joy in the small moments. Especially when those small moments include tantrums, or repeating yourself for the 5th time. Sometimes the best parents get frustrated, and sometimes we don’t deal well with that frustration.
Before we came on this trip (and before we made our official announcement about it), I asked a question in a local homeschooling group: “If you had a whole year in an RV and a tablet, what apps would you want for your homeschooling?”
If you’re trying to develop a gratitude habit, remembering your self-care is important. Although these two things may seem completely unrelated, they’re really not: self-care is a way of showing gratitude for your body.
Your body is the only thing you’ll know you’ll have for the rest of your life.

It carries you through this life and allows you to experience everything our earth has to offer.

But there’s one thing I rarely write about: my health conditions.

I incorrectly said in a previous post that we had spent the evening of Tuesday, September 4th, 2018 in Percé. We actually spent that night in Riviére-au-Renard. After a lovely sleep with a gorgeous free view, we headed out to Forillon National Park.
I love connecting people to resources, whether those resources are other people, information, or places. And whereas that looks helpful, the truth is, it could be seen as a pretty selfish thing to do. I help others because helping others makes me feel good. And we all like to feel good, don’t we? And making me feel good is not the only advantage of helping others. It turns out that it helps people remember who I am—and that’s pretty good for business.
Visiting beautiful Quebec, and (sort of) learning a little French
Quebec is a truly beautiful province. But I’m being reminded of just how little French I know while travelling here. I do know enough to get by. I can say:
