So how’s this for fun!
[Spoken like a country hick!]
Today all the buses in Guelph are Free! Last night at my first Guelph Home School Support Group meeting I learned that Guelph is “sold” by Real Estate Agents to Hip Torontonians as being the Crunchiest City in Ontario! I don’t know if that is true, but hey! We definately have a Crunchy Garbage system. The kids and I find ourselves standing in front of the fridge side where I have taped the guidelines several times a day trying to figure out where the item we have in our hands belongs! White, Green or Blue!
Anyhow. I am also going to try and get us a City Phone book. Using Canada 411 works, but kind of labourious! I am the sort that still loves the feel of a search through a paper book and do find it so much more rapid than entering a password, pulling up the Brouwser, clicking on the web site in my bookmarks, waiting for it to load, entering my search, refining my search, and then hunting for the phone! 😆
Oh well, time to run! … ride!
We had a blast! We spent the day riding buses, walking through the downtown and so forth. Nearly 7 hours out and about!
It was nice. I think the kids and I can do this quite easily. I also learned that with planning I can take the kids to TO for only $25 one-way on the train. That would be quite fun and now I have to figure out a good plan/trip.
One thing we are going to work on is DS’s mouth. He was lipping off about the idiots whose pants hang off their hips, and stuff like that all day. I know where he gets it from and have spoken to him a lot, but he hasn’t learned. Today twice I had a very frank talk about him that sometimes those “idiots” get very angry with lippy kids and wouldn’t have a problem letting the lippy child know that they were fed up with him.
He also has a habit of broadcasting everything. All our information, etc. So I have to work on getting a filter in front of his mouth. And work on the source of some of his behaviours. Thankfully we are not in contact with this person/family too often, but they will be in his life forever so he will have to learn to choose his own words and thoughts!
