One has to experience Saskatchewan seasons to understand the importance of over night spring. I believe this is the only place of earth that you can have winter one day and the next day spring is here in full bloom. Week 21 felt long, in a good way, I sincerely thought it was two weeks rolled into one. We like it like that.
Monday was Victoria Day so AOI didn’t go to preschool. AMI was off from work too. We all stayed home and spent a lovely time together as family. In the afternoon AOI had a playdate with CB by the river. In the evening after bedtime AMI went canoeing with a friend. When he got back he told us about the beavers by the river so Tuesday we went to see a family of beavers enjoying an evening swim in the cool water.
Wednesday preschool started, in the afternoon AOI had a playdate with AS, and her brother was there too. TOI loved playing in the mud, for my luck he didn’t eat soil (something I can’t really stand) as he usual does. The kids giggled, spread mud on our feet and washed it off with extra cold water. At one point I told my friend “Sprint is really here.”
Friday I went to preschool with TOI to be the helping hand. TOI loves going to his sister’s class. He doesn’t want to leave the class when it’s time to go home. In the afternoon CB came to our house because it was my turn to look after the kids the whole afternoon.
Saturday was great, we spent the time going on a bicycle ride to the farmers market. We then had lunch with VK, because she saw us on our way to the market. After lunch she came some vintage Canon lenses that I’m currently using to experiment free lens photography with. I’m really enjoying that.
Sunday was a lazy day, we didn’t go to church. Instead we spent the morning organising AOI’s room. Afternoon, like most afternoons during this week, was spent in the garden with cold water on our toes
