September has arrived and with it the cool days of Fall welcome us. I’m actually quite excited for Fall to come, I love the season change as I know it means bringing out our coats and boots and the occassional fire to warm things up. However, I’m sure many a mama with school age children now have a little more structure to their day. So now that week 1, or 2 depending on your area, of school is over, it’s time to head to the local stores and pickup the “forgotten” items to complete their accessories for school. I must admit, I am quite happy with my little 1 1/2 year old now…as I know soon I’ll be in the long line ups scouring for those notebooks and backpacks.
Whatever the age of your children, the weekends are still free, if you haven’t already signed up for various classes/courses, and Toronto has so much for us to do! I hope you enjoy this weeks round up! Those Polish sausages sure look tasty 🙂 Enjoy!
