Exploring Historic Grimsby Beach

A couple of weeks ago I took the kids on another little adventure. I stumbled on this blog post from In Search of Sarah about these fabulous colourful houses in a town not too far from where I live.  I packed up the kids and recruited my parents to come with us. We've lived in this area for decades and never knew this little historical area existed. So, I had to share the cuteness with them.  I won't pretend to be a historian and tell you all the amazing things about these houses but suffice to say, they were just as cute in person as they are in the pictures.  You can learn more about these houses here: Grimsby Beach - Visitor Info History and Heritage - Village of Grimsby I LOVED the colour of this home and it was just as fresh looking in person as it is in the photo.

Homework Chronicles

Homework at our house is almost never quick, and it’s always painful. My daughter is in grade 2 and cries if she doesn’t get homework. My son, in grade 4, cries when he does get homework which unfortunately for him is like every fricken night.

It’s rare that I’m able to get both kids to sit down at the same time and do homework while I do the after-dinner cleanup…so you could imagine my surprise when I looked over and saw these two little hooligans side by side, not fighting, and helping each other with their homework.

I was swooning with love and affection.

Until.

Yup – I knew it was too good to be true.

Tyler: Mom can I watch tv?

Me: No, you’re not done your homework.

Tyler: It's ok, Adrianna said she would finish my homework because it’s just colouring and she can finish colouring my science title page.

HE LURED HER IN BECAUSE IT’S COLOURING SO IT’S LIKE HER FAVOURITE THING TO DO…OF COURSE, SHE’D SAY YES!

Needless to say, they were not too pleased with me for botching their plan…but I have to hand it to them for trying to work together to get what they want lol
