Up To Our Same Old Tricks

It feels like forever since we’ve been on a proper trip.  After the start of the school year and after a very busy summer, our adventures slow down to a trickle. We absolutely play hooky to go exploring, but after skipping a chunk of the first week of school and then hitting the wet and really cold but not quite cold enough weather here in southern Ontario, we’ve been twiddling our tripping thumbs.

Fast forward to today. I spent the afternoon juggling schedules and trying to make reservations…looking for availability and dodging meetings and commitments like a pro. Nothing is finalized yet, but it looks like we are finally breaking the drought and hitting the hills. I want to go cross-country skiing!  When I told the kids they were thrilled.  “Please, please, please make it happen” they pleaded with clenched hands, eyes shut tight and on bent knees.  Believe me guys…I’m trying!

We're going on a trip? Woohoo!

We’re going on a trip? Woohoo!

We are beginning to plan our whole 2013 schedule and it is looking GOOD. A hike here, a paddle there and a crazy idea is finally going to come to life. Whether this ski trip happens or not (don’t worry, another one will take its place if this falls through), it feels good to be out of our self-imposed rut and up to our same old tricks.

  1. Awesome. 🙂 Just wanted to say that reading your blog last year totally inspired our family to buy a canoe for Christmas this year! I expect hilarious shenanigans to ensue this summer.
