Fernie’s Visual Arts Club For Kids 7-11 Starts Today

The Abstract Lions art club is on! Our weekly Wednesday after-school arts club begins today and Raegan and I are super excited to get started. We will start with Line and continue each week with a different element of art. Drop-ins are welcome at $16/session but the kids still need to be registered. You can do that by going directly to: The Abstract Lion Art Club.

If you know anyone that might be interested, please feel free to pass on the information. Wednesdays, 3:45-4:45, upstairs at The Arts Station, for kids 7-11 years old (but if your kid is keen on participating we won’t turn anyone away) from January 23rd to March 13th.

New Years Eve 2018 In Fernie

letterkenny-review

A lot like other years, since our family grew, New Years Eve plans have changed a bit. We’re not drinking and partying until 5 in the morning (not that I ever really did that). This year we’re thinking of taking the kids up to the hill, cooking hotdogs at the bottom of mighty moose, do some night skiing and sledding, watching the fireworks at 9 and then head home to put the kids to bed. How times have changed! I’m kind of looking forward to it, though. An easy and fun time with the kids and a nice quiet evening with Robo. Let’s see if this pans out the way I think or perhaps my husband will be out partying like it’s 2008, not unlikely, and I’ll have a nice quiet evening with my TV. I’ve started watching Letterkenny, a show set in a small Ontario town, which I didn’t think would grab me the way it is and that’s all I want to watch now. Bringing in the new year with Wayne, Daryl and Dan!

Fernie Heritage Library’s Dicken’s Christmas Party

Dickens' Christmas Party Fernie BC Library

From the Facebook event page:

Dickens’ Christmas Party: Saturday, Dec 22nd, 2:00-4:00 pm

Join us for cider, stories, treats, and activities for all ages. This annual library event is a wonderful chance to connect with your neighbours. The afternoon concludes with a rousing community Christmas carol led by local community musicians. All are welcome.”

I’m a big believer in the Fernie Heritage Library and their programs but this is, honestly, one I try to avoid because it’s so popular. I’m not a fan of so many people in tight spaces. But I do know it’s a good time and hosted by amazing people.

Little Mountain Art Studio Partnership

There’s something about people coming together that warms my heart. Michelle has just announced Little Mountain Art Studio is teaming up with Jodie Parker. Two incredible women making art with kids this summer. I love it.

Views Of Fernie : Miniature Horses At The Old Barn

miniature horses in fernie bc - old montane barn

We needed a fun morning adventure on Monday morning so I took the kids and their bikes to the bridge along Coal Creek Road and introduced them to the miniature horses Sher, Daphne and Cowboy. Phoenix, being almost 4, loved them and wanted to stay all day. It was a struggle getting them away from the barn so we could go home…and then the cats came out.

The owners of the horses don’t want anyone coming by with treats but visiting the horses and giving them a good bum scratch was definitely encouraged. We will be back!
