Jem Moment: Unicorn Immigration


First of all, today is the day we got the news that Michiel’s permanent residence application was accepted and he can now, officially immigrate! 😊

We knew he’d been accepted and that it was only a matter of time but I guess we didn’t realise that time would come so quickly.

So, those horror stories about trying to immigrate and move? Were just that, horror stories to freak us out 😬😝

No the paperwork and information required wasn’t pleasant nor easy either at times but we are so thankful that it all went through smoothly once they were sent in and how the Lord worked with the timing and process of it all.


So Canada, meet Mike.

Mike, say hello to Canada 😉

Speaking of immigrating to Canada, isn’t it funny how you see something your whole life and don’t really notice it?

For me, I’m speaking of  The Coat of Arms of Canada, seen on a big safe in our little local post office.

I’ve seen it hundreds of times and never really looked at it until today and when I did, I noticed it had… a unicorn??!
I looked more closely and yep, it was for sure a unicorn and I wondered if it could truly be Canada’s Coat of Arms and motto.

I know… I didn’t learn a whole lot in history obviously 😬🙄

But still, it seemed too magically fantastic to be our representation.

So I looked it up and yep… Canada’s motto is ‘From Sea To Sea’ (which I did know) and there is indeed, a unicorn 🦄

So, it was a good day in the way of knowledges gained 😉😋👌🏻

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊

  1. I wonder why it’s there? Put your homeschool skills to use and find out for me!! I find it so interesting too that it’s there… Like you, I knew the motto but never noticed the unicorn?!🤔💭🦄
