Our Weekend



A slow, quiet weekend spent at home, all plans cancelled so little man could fully recover from the little bug that invaded his body. We made an exception for a nature walk each day, a little fresh air is always good.

Little hands were busy with colouring, stickers and puzzles; big hands were busy with knitting, crafting, reading and writing. Together we snuggled under quilts with hot tea and watched a little bit of the Olympics.

Not the weekend we had planned, but in the end a really good one. And today, although Monday greets us, it is a long weekend. There are plans for our normal "school" morning and then a family hike before we return home to homemade bread and soup.

Have a wonderful start to your week.

How was your weekend?

  1. our weekend ended up the same, staying inside due to the weather and switching the plans, slowing down. It was a good weekend!

  12. I think there are times when quiet weekends are the best. I hope your little man is much better today.
    It is so funny to see your photos with all the snow and here I am thinking we need to cut grass already, or at least the clover because I'm afraid I could not see a snake if it was hiding in it.
