We are finally entering Spring up North here. Lots of sunshine melting the snow piles away and lots of smiles to go along with it. It was a very long, cold winter. Many of the days too cold to go out unless you had too. Days the car wouldn't start and the window drafts would chill our bodies. But thankfully we are well on our way to spring. I am putting away the winter gear with no fear of having to pull it all out again as I had to three weeks ago. It's sweater weather! And we are thrilled!
A photo of my baby girl enjoying some fresh snow a few weeks. Too cute to not share.
We have been enjoying parks now that they are dried up, sand toys, slides and swings. The boys are happy to let all that pent out energy and Madeline is finding new independence as she climbs ladders and goes down slides all by herself this year. It truly is a new season for our family. We can do more now and it feels really good. We are all looking forward to new adventures.
Speaking of new adventures we are moving back West in 3 weeks. Excited for this new adventure and as always scared and nervous for the challenges that moving always brings. Including 8 days in a car with 4 kiddo's. We are prepping with audio books, new colouring books and a new movie to keep them happy. My husbands job has our family on the go a lot but this will be the last one for our family for 8-10 years. We are looking for somewhere to call home and we have a really good feeling about this one.
Our new adventure brings us a tiny farming town and a tiny home to go along with it. 1,100 square feet of space for our family of six! The children have to share rooms and no room for a play room just a small living area with a nice wood fireplace. We are getting rid of things the children do not play with, with the help from them. Talking a lot about our new home, sharing, and long road trips. I'm going to have to get creative to make this space comfortable for all of us but I'm up to that challenge. Luckily for us, they are so good with moves. Resilient. Moving brings them excitement. This is the boys fourth move in just over four years (and fourth province!) so I guess they have had practice. So thankful for them to teach me over and over again how to look at the bright side of things.
And a few moments recently that make me smile:
Movie nights including Popcorn and Norm of the North. The kids loved it. Their giggles were definitely worth the vacuuming that needed to be done after these kiddos eat popcorn.
