Trinity bashed her head open at the pool on the water slide stair railing. The YMCA was absolutely wonderful about cleaning it up and keeping her calm. And Ken and Trinity were total troopers at the hospital.

And the girls we playdate with at the YMCA were terrific about playing games instead of swimming until her head healed up enough.20180709_184130

Our friends down the road brought her get well soon Tim Bits!20180707_104350

We even made a trip out to a local dam. It was great fun to wander around and enjoy the water, the wildlife and the people watching. Walkabout Wednesdays.20180718_184032

March Already! Woo!

Here I go, March 2018… catching up in a timely manner. YES! Or not… my fast and furious blogging took a hit with the much anticipated Karyn visit AND a semi surprise last minute Shauna and Jeff down from Canada weekend. And then life in general kicked my butt… but here I am.20180328_234601

So… March, what was March… it ended in Easter weekend. So we had our own little egg hunt in the house. The twins did the hiding for the younger 3.20180331_121040

I jumped all in on working on Irish and Celtic knots. I have purchased a few books and some lovely satin cord. Definitely a skill I need to find time in the fall to continue with.20180317_153021

I invested in some gorgeous reversible sari skirts which I can tell you NOW I wore ALL summer. There is something amazing about wearing bright colours and patterns that swish when you walk.

There was plenty of time spent at the YMCA, of course. I hope it has been at least somewhat fun for the staff to be such a major part of my kids’ growth and enjoyment!20180325_111909

I took a walk down memory lane and bought a Tamagotchi! If you don’t know what that is… well I won’t ask your age, cuz that could end up sad.IMG_20180323_215210_715

Echo lost teeth, important teeth – the front ones – and they took FOREVER to grow back in.IMG_20180319_195807_664
