Starting the weekend on Friday has become a habit we really enjoy around here, so we are sticking with it. We spent Friday morning in the woods with friends, turning over logs and rocks looking for bugs. There was some balance beam walking on old logs, a little meandering through a meadow and a few rounds of owl catching little mice, a version of tag created by the kids. We spent the afternoon with Reece's godparents catching up and enjoying a few cups of tea.
I was up and out early Saturday morning to attend the rehearsal for the dance students I teach. It was my last role as dance teacher, a role I have had for 24 years. I am not sad to see it end, it was time and I am ready. I left smiling, with a spring in my step, ready for whatever comes next.
Back home, we enjoyed a lovely lunch and then Reece and I headed out for a little nature connection. He rode, I walked. We stopped a lot...to pick flowers, to look at tracks, to watch the water run, did I mention to pick flowers. My little man has a fascination with a few things right now and flowers is among them. I have to admit the little bouquets on my kitchen window sill do make me smile.
Sunday, we joined my brother and his family and my mom in surprising my dad with a day trip to Toronto for lunch at the top of the CN Tower to celebrate his 65th birthday. It was a lovely day and we managed to pull off the surprise perfectly.
It was a full weekend in so many ways, which has left me looking forward to a relaxing day today with not much on the calendar.
How was your weekend?
