Be A Super Rock Collector
Rocks have been an interest for humans for a long time. They have been collected to be used for tools and were sought out for minerals and precious stones. Rock collecting today is a popular hobby that is shared by all ages. If you’ve got a curious little one at home who loves science, maybe rock collecting is something they would love to get into. This could very well lead to a career in geology!
Whistler – More Than a Winter Playground
“Can we go to the pool now, Mama? Please?” We’d only checked into our room fifteen minutes ago, and I was in the process of unpacking the suitcases and putting our cooler items into the fridge. Our three kids, ages nine, eight, and five, had been counting down the days until our arrival. They just couldn’t wait to get in that pool; it even had a waterslide! And so, my husband and I helped them into their swimsuits, grabbed the towels, and headed down for some splashy fun. Where are we? It may surprise you to learn we’re in Whistler, British Columbia.
Canadian Summer Must Visits

Camping in Yellowknife
While travel restrictions lately have kept many of us from experiencing provinces and territories we don’t live in, hopefully that will be changing soon. Anyone who lives near enough to drive to Yellowknife absolutely should! If you are in northern Alberta, you could definitely make this type of trip. It is so educational to see such a northern climate and landscape and to experience the various wildlife and sites of this wonderful city. Whether you prefer to visit unique local shops and eateries, see historical sites, or if you are more into an active outdoors visit, this city has something for everyone. If you want to camp in the Yellowknife area, you have three main options for campgrounds with each one having its own perks.
Visiting Quebec – Recommendations from a French Homeschool Mom
Quebec is one of the 13 provinces in Canada, and it is the biggest one in land mass. It has a colourful fall with its continental seasons, a lot of snow in the winter (and heavy snow), a very warm and hot summer accompanied by a lot of humidity, and a beautiful spring with yummy and sweet maple syrup.
Glorious Grand Manan
Grand Manan, New Brunswick, is a picturesque island located off the coast of southern New Brunswick in the Bay of Fundy near the state of Maine. It is not a well-known destination in Canada, and many Maritimers have not even visited. The island is tiny, only 34 km long and 18 km wide at its widest point, but it is not tiny in beauty. It is accessible only by a 90 minute ferry ride, but once you cross the ferry, you are met with unmatched views and a wide variety of hiking trails and sights to discover!
Nunavut : The Newest and Most Northern Territory
What do you picture when you think of Nunavut? Many would say that igloos, snow, polar bears and northern lights come to mind, and they are right! But there is so much more to Nunavut than that. When we received our first posting to this territory, I was incredibly nervous. But in the end, moving to Nunavut is one of the best things that happened to our family.
