I knew it would take me a while to get my groove on – the music is slowly warming up my muscles. Things are going much better. The weather is getting warmer, we are getting out, and dinner is getting made …I count all of these as successes and I am only responsible for two out of three.
A walk in a spring Yukon small forest +meadow.
I have discovered that kids love nothing better than throwing rocks into the river with a friend.
And we all know that true happiness is a great sleep. As Ethan and I come to the end of the Voyage of the Dawn Treader, I was thinking about poor Ol’ Lord Rhoop who Caspian found floundering in the waters of the Dark Island : a place where all your dreams come true, including nightmares. He struggles to come to himself again once rescued and only finds true rest when given a long dreamless sleep. So true.

Splash parks – need I say more.

Life gets easier when you know those hard times will pass and routines and rhythm will help bring a sense of order!
I LOVE first swim and the Symba watching made me just laugh out loud. This is such a great slice of life with kids.
Thanks Denise. Count on a 10 year old to take the first dive into our northern frigid waters.
