Summer Planning

We have rented an old house by the sea in Nova Scotia for a week this summer. Recently I ordered Nova Scotia's tourism materials and they have arrived.

Each girl has been assigned the task of planning a day trip. Lou has become completely engrossed in planning. She has a big pack of sticky notes and has been carefully labeling each activity or restaurant with the grid coordinate on the map, figuring out distance, driving route and location.

So far she has chosen an Acadian festival, a lobster supper, a self-guided history tour, the Firefighters' Museum of Nova Scotia -- "high drama and heroism", a bike loop, a modern art gallery, and THREE yarn shops. It will be a busy day :)

She is very excited to lead us on "her" day. She has also completely solidified her mapping skills.

What a great way to get all involved! Mapping using a map rather than google maps is impressive too!!Your holiday just needs lots of sun to make it perfect.
