Definitely not in the mood to blog.
That is why we are starting on day 5.
Today is Deven's first day at North Park Collegiate Vocational School (Go Trojans!?)
They only have four classes at a time, so all he has to take is English and math and he chose Sculpting and World Religions as his electives.
He asked the guidance counselor if he was allowed to carry his Boy Scout pocket knife to school.
"Absolutely not. We have a no weapons policy. Canadians do not have the right to bear arms."
"It's not a weapon. It's a tool."
"You would set off a wave of panic and the school would be locked down."
"But can't anything be weaponized? Pencils?"
"We are a peaceful people. There will be no need for weapons."
I think he's off to a great start there.
The other kids seem to like their school, and are making friends. French class is going to be a challenge. They start French in Fourth Grade, so Beef is not as far behind as Emma and Christa.
With the kids meeting new people and having lovely cultural experiences, I am wondering what I should do to get the most of this experience. My laundry is done, carpet vacuumed, dishes washed.
Now what? Brush up on my French? Take up Curling?
