Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real this week finds my two sweeties having some together time.
The other day I heard voices from the front porch and peaked out the window to see what was going on.
Turns out Ella was on a hunt for Pokemon -just like the phone game she’s seen on the news. Ella was given some Pokemon cards at Christmas from a friend and has a couple stuffies now too. As you can see she’s all set, with her binoculars and her journal for recording who she finds.
It was nice and cool (please ignore Ella’s hoodie, it wasn’t that cold) Tuesday evening so we took a stroll down the ‘tracks’ to the river. Wow there are lots of berries this year. The chokecherry bushes are loaded and so are the raspberry canes.
A view of the river we don’t usually see.
My Pretty girl had such a Happy time at the High Tea birthday party on Saturday. The mom drove them to her parent’s (just outside of downtown) and then took the girls on the bus the rest of the way to the Chateau Laurier. All the girls were excited and had a grand time riding the bus.
Ella got so many compliments on her new dress and how grown-up she’s becoming.
I am Happy because I am so blessed to be able to spend so much time with my girl. This morning we are making Ella ice cream. We’re experimenting and trying to make a chocolate peanut butter ice cream, that’s her favourite combination. Later we’ll make some frogs (recipe to follow once I have a picture to share too).
Real is getting ready for school to start again. We’ll be busy this year. We’re using a new math curriculum and it really focuses on the basics and leads you up to all the fancy maths (algebra, calculus, etc). Ella’s excited to get started.
