Be Toasting the Roast

Saturday morning here and you can imagine that it involves a pot of coffee brewing.  

A wake-me up in a cup. 

A sip of Java. 

A morning toast to the roast. 

 We don’t all like coffee, but the smell is distinctive and very comforting.  

And a coffee shop up at the Star ski hill can make you feel completely at home in winter or summer.    
Cheers! 

Be Asking What You ‘Did’ on the Weekend

As a stay-at-home mom, my Monday to Fridays are weekends and my weekends are a holidays because I have all my boys at home.   My favourite quote as I raise up young men, “The days are long, but the years are short?”

My usual weekends involve cooking, cleaning, laundry, driving, encouraging, creating and loving up my boys to get ready to launch them ‘back into the world’ for another week. I feel profoundly grateful that I can be my three boys first teacher and that Sexy Neck supports me emotionally as well as financially. I feel completely content with my ‘job’ but sometimes I cringe at the Monday morning school drop-off where people ask about your weekend.

Tomorrow, I am going to be laughing my head off as I answer the question, “What did you do on the weekend?”.

I did surgery on a bear!

Thanks JC for taking the photo of me sewing on daddy bear’s head. Nana would be proud. We had daddy bear sitting by Nana’s sewing machine since the fall, but we brought him home.   I sewed on my first teddy bear head. I can do anything.

New.

Risk taking.

Needle.

Thread.

One head at a time.

Grace.

Peace.

Joy.

Huge smile from JC.

Proud Mama.

Another great day.

Weekend.

Doing.

Being.

Be Having Simple Soccer Family Fun

We are at the stage where we go as a family to all our sporting events and activities. Our boys love cheering for each other and playing on the sidelines.

This spring, we embarked on our maiden voyage of being a soccer family. I am not sure when Sexy Neck and I will need to divide and conquer the boys activities, but for now we are enjoying being in the same boat.

CC is participating in ‘kick and run’ soccer on Friday nights.

All the boys love shooting on the net afterwards.

JC is playing on his first team ever, practicing midweek and playing games on Saturday mornings.
