Another year

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

On one hand it feels like it was so long ago, and on the other hand it went by so quickly. Where does the time disappear?

In September 2009 we started like this:



… and yesterday we finished the school year like this:

It’s like watching a flame – we see them every day, but don’t catch the minute changes.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. 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.
