Sam and Madeline got to stay up late last night after a big sleep in the afternoon so Paul got out a jigsaw for us to work on together. The kids did a fantastic job sorting through the colours and then putting together the provinces: it was a geography lesson as well as an activity of course. You can see them proudly pointing to Vancouver Island saying "this is where we're going at Christmas," although they are pointing to the top of the island, which is probably a distance much like Bluff to Nelson. "Wow, Canada is so big Mum!" Yes, it is.
