Victoria Day

Hi there everyone! Hope you are getting ready for Victoria Day week-end! I know that with the long week-end coming up, people are excited about summer. At this point, I know I'm ready for the temperatures to warm up. Spring seems to be somewhat cold this year :(

Anyhow, please remember to be safe this week-end! That means, if you're traveling to your cottage that (for parents) you drive safely.

If your family is doing a fireworks display with friends, family or neighbours, remember to be SAFE with the fireworks. Please parents, make sure that you don't set them off under trees (which I've seen someone do), that you don't aim them at someone's house (which I've also seen someone do). The fireworks should be placed in a bucket of sand before they are launched. Also, having a bucket of water close by is important. The whole idea of a fireworks is for FUN. Nobody wants to get hurt, or have a fire start. So, please be responsible and remember that children are watching and learning by example :)

I love fireworks, the colours, the excitement and even hearing the corny noises of people saying 'Ooohhh and Ahhhh". It's super fun and God has blessed us so very much to live in a place like Canada.

Thanks and have a super, safe and happy Victoria Day week-end!
