The Circus Living family minus me
I am not in the picture, I know. I am always the one taking the pictures but if you are curious, that's me below!

Me

Welcome to the Circus Living blog. We are a family of five composed of two overwhelmed sleep-deprived parents and three crazy hyper kids all with very strong personalities.  How do we manage? One day at a time.

And in no particular order, here are the sections of the Circus Living blog and what they entail...
 
THE BIG TOP - On November 16th, 2015, I made the concerted effort to focus the Circus Living blog on monsters, the haunted, and the unexplained, and make it into less of a family blog. For those of you who have come to know Circus Living as a blog of our family and wish to keep up with our kids' adventures, do not worry, there will still be plenty of updates on what Randy, I, and the kids have been up to. The only difference now is that most of our entries will be focused on our interests in everything monster-related, our new home town of Montreal, and any family travel adventures we plan. To find out more about my decision to follow this path, be sure to read this entry.

MONTREAL LIVING - As of July 2015, our family moved to beautiful Quebec and a special section on our blog called 'Montreal Living' was born. Readers who are interested in what we are up to can keep updated on our adventures around this amazing city (and some entries from the viewpoints of the Circus Living kids!). This section as well as all of our day-to-day family quibbles and meanderings can be found in the BIG TOP section of our blog.
 
JUMPS (OUR TRAVELS)  - A worthwhile hobby I have which gives me joy and comfort is exploring the world with my family. And I don't necessarily mean travel to somewhere far. Even within the city and within our own home, there are lots of adventures to experience. With this blog, I hope to offer some tips, advice, and offer updates on the latest and greatest travel experiences. I myself find travel reviews and tips online especially helpful so I am hoping to extend the courtesy to others who may need advice or help in certain areas :) Our travel experiences in the past have mostly involved day trips or travelling in our travel trailer (Our TRAIN). Since our move to Montreal, however, our travel experiences encompass trips around our city as well as around Quebec and its surrounding areas. How do our entries differ from other travel blog entries? Our travel entries revolve around managing three young kids of different ages, a spirited little girl, and following a restricted dietary lifestyle (we eat Paleo) when travelling. So parents with young kids, dietary restrictions and spirited children may want to stay tuned for our posts!  Our travel experiences can be found in the JUMP section of our website

CONCESSIONS (ARTISTS AND PRODUCT REVIEWS) - Our family loves the macabre, the unexplained, the gothic, anything and everything creepy and eerie. You will find artwork and products we have discovered worth writing about which fit our morbid interests in the CONCESSIONS portion of our website. We do write product reviews but only for products with a Halloween-esque or Horror-ish vibe. The same guidelines apply to artists we cover.

(R)ONAN-RATED - We are proud to announce that we are extending our repertoire of product reviews to encompass more than monster-related wares in our section called R(onan)-Rated! Ronan in this upcoming toy and game review section will be providing reviews on the latest and greatest horror/thriller games, monster-related toys (of course!), and educational toys and products.

THE HOOLIGANS READING CLUB - Mystery, magic, thrills & chills. Let your imaginations soar. Journey with the Hooligans aka Circus Living kids as they embark on reading-fueled adventures!
