Fall weather surprised us over the weekend. It dropped below seasonal temps and without the sunshine, Saturday felt like mid-October. It was rainy and cold – we stayed inside most of the day while it poured but when there was a break, the Little Man and I stepped outside for some playtime. It didn’t last long, before it began raining down again – but for a brief time we had fun, we loaded up dump trucks with fallen leaves and sticks. We got messy and laughed. We pretended we were in a marching band and marched around our new backyard blowing a make-believe trumpet. Time always slows down when you play with kids.
Things have been helter-skelter around here – with the move, with Aiden starting school, with Abigail teething (3 coming in at once!), unpacking, no internet – the list goes on. We are really trying to focus on the positive things, like our lovely new home, beautiful neighbourhood, big green backyard, and the family hang outs we are getting to have in the midst of LIFE. I am grateful for that. I am stretched, but I am thankful for the living that is happening through the stretching…make sense? (on four hours of sleep, it makes sense to me!)
I am hoping for easier times ahead and a sense of settling in. I’m also looking forward to having home internet – it’s a strange feeling to not have access to it and to have to arrange times to hit up a coffee shop to connect online! A luxury I definitely took for granted.
Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend friends xo
