For now though, I'm glad that we have these little things we we've been able to enjoy on the weekends! This weekend in particular made me realize that it's often the small things that we do, when we get the chance to take it slow at home, that we really enjoy as a family. Running around and doing all these activities is great and all, but it's the slowing down and enjoying the moment that really make me appreciate what we have.
For instance, we busted out the watercolour paints. Something I haven't done in a LOOOONG time. And I don't ever really recall the kids ever doing. So we had an afternoon full of contained mess and chaotic organization, it was great! We all took our turns, created loads of rainbows, played with colours and even just scribbled paints on the paper.
Later I found the kids creating the biggest tower they could! The thing is as tall as A and C!!! And surprisingly still stands today (I'm surprised one of them didn't knock it down).
Over the weekend has also made me realize how much time flies. I'll probably be saying this a lot this week! But the first thing that pushed me in the mind set was the hockey season. C started playing hockey this year, and our last game was on Sunday. It feels like we just started (waaayyy back in late September!) and I can't believe it's already come to a close.
I can't wait to see what the next couple months bring now! Looking back is great, and unbelievable, but looking forward is always the best, there's always so much possibility! I'm hoping to write some quick reflections on Mondays from now on, to give a glimpse of life, inspiration, goals, what I'm working on and other little things. I'll be back this week with more sewing (and maybe even some knitting talks ;) )
