    Wanting

    “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”

    Martin Luther King Jr.

    Lately, it seems that many of Pip’s sentences begin with, ‘I want…’ We’re not sure where the ‘May I pleases,’ have gone, but we’re determined to […]

    Finding the gratitude

    “Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be […]

    Structure

    “When kids play they remember, they may not be aware that they are learning, but they sure are aware that they are having fun.”

    Rebecca Krook

    Perspective

    “There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.”

    Minnie Aumonier

    We went for a gorgeous, fall walk in the forest and Fig had a spill. She tripped on a root and rolled, head-over-heels, in beautiful form. It […]

    Love about it

    “Tears are the safety valve of the heart when too much pressure is laid on it.”

    Albert Smith

    Pip seems to cry a lot in the late afternoon. I think it has to do with the fact that she could still benefit from a wee kip, but she hasn’t had a […]

    Power

    “Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.”

    Amelia Burr

    I try to take the girls on an outdoor adventure every day, rain or shine, and last week was no exception. It was a blustery day when I packed a lunch and the three of […]
