I’ve been feeling a bit at a loss for words recently. I’ve come to a place where I am feeling very overwhelmed with work (more like waiting to return to work with the BC teacher’s strike) and that’s been pulling my mind away from putting words and thoughts down, but I want to remember the little moments that have been happening. I thought that I would share a little glimpse into what we’ve been up to as a family recently. After all I started this blog as a place to share with friends and family about what we are up to, and to help me remember everything we get up to as a little family.
Jason is the french toast master in our home. We bought a $1 loaf of french bread, and he made up a very yummy breakfast for all of us. I think we need to do this more often, or at least every weekend.
We’ve been spoiled with a long summer, and gorgeous weather. While I’ve been doing my time on the picket lines Jason has made a goal for himself to get outside and be active each morning. Evie has been getting to enjoy lots of time at the park thanks to this, and it’s been a great time for the two of them to hang out.
I am so thankful for Evie’s helpful heart. Need to load the dishwasher? Evie wants to help. So we hand her dishes and cutlery one by one to be put in. She even helps unload. Need to do laundry? Evie is right there helping put stuff into the washer, and pulling it out to go up into the dryer. Need to water the garden? No problem, she wants to get to help out even if it means soaking her whole outfit.
Where did this grown up girl come from who can climb up the stairs all on her own, and is absolutely fearless? She likes to swing from the bar at the top of the slide. I see a lot of cuts and bruises in our future, time to make sure we have a lot of bandages in the cupboard.
