Dreamy Poppies are Blooming Everywhere in the Garden
I knew exactly what I wanted to write about this week. I have been reflecting on this topic for the last couple of weeks. But the kids started summer holidays, hot weather moved in, and I followed through on my vision board quotes of "A Better Summer", "Family Routines to Refresh for Summer" and "For Family Fun". Last weekend, my daughter had a blast at our local celebration of volunteers and both my children soaked up the heat and cooled off in the ocean with friends. Our family also spent a day at The Museum of Vancouver because although we live in a tiny rural town where the kids spend an inordinate amount of time climbing trees, we are trying to provide them with a cultural context to their lives.
Celebrating Henry, One of My Favourite People and Local Volunteer
All of this is to say that this week was a win for my family, but I didn't have time to write the post that I was looking forward to. I hope you will accept my apology and that you will enjoy a photo newsletter, with images to illustrate what has been taking place in my garden and life this week.
