Back Home Again

Julia is back home again, for a brief time, before heading off to a two-week summer camp next week. We had left her in Montreal earlier in the week to spend a few days with my parents. Her school started their summer break last Friday, but Kate still had a few days to go and returned home with Todd and me. Julia got to see Aunt Jill, Uncle Joe, Martin and Oliver for an extra day, before they headed home to Singapore, and she had a nice visit with Aunt Beryl's family as well.

On Wednesday, Julia flew back from Montreal to Toronto on her own. We could have paid for an Air Canada escort, but having been on about a dozen round-trip flights in her relatively short lifetime, she was experienced enough to make this short trip on her own. Of course, I worried. That's what moms do. However, Julia got back safe and sound, with no wrong turns or delays en route.

Before we left, I took a photo of Julia reading and that inspired the layout above. She spent much of the trip reading, after we all stocked up at Chapters on the first day. The book she has in the photo is the second book of Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series, which Julia highly recommends.
