My Year of Yoda check in

I can’t believe it’s June 1 today! I also can’t believe how little I’ve been posting lately.

This is the first year that I’ve been taking daytime classes at Algonquin College, so it’s also the first year that I’m having to make plans around my schedule (since postsecondary students get their Reading Week in February) instead of just filling up the week with fun activities for my daughters.
