Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Photography

Let’s all bid adieu to the 2008-2009 school year.

We won’t miss the homework. We will miss our friends and teachers.

It started out like this:

First day of school - 2008

… and ended like this:

Last day of school - 2009

It was a good year.

Goodbye 2008-2009! Hello summer fun.

Oh my goodness…does 10 months still make that big a difference at that age?! I am not prepared, haha! Your girls are so lovely.
Loved reading your “real time”post, too. :)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
