My Raggedy Old Man Is Getting Older

You move slowly now, and jumping is harder. You aren’t that interested in knocking Christmas ornaments off the tree anymore, and you are picky about what you will eat. You are vocal about what you want and are patient and loving to your kids. You notice when our schedule shifts and we aren’t where you … Continue reading My Raggedy Old Man Is Getting Older

It’s not perfect

Life isn’t perfect. Especially right now. COVID numbers are going up in my province.

Back to School – COVID édition

Back to school 2020 is a bit different than previous years, but the perfunctory first day of school photo is an old standard. We painted that door red for our girls’ first day of preschool 9 years ago, and every year less and less of it shows up in their pictures are they grow.
