Our sweet Pearl-girl turned 7! We are big believers in "Birthday Week" in our house so we've spent all week celebrating Pearl. Last week started off with a family swim and then a trip up Coast to Pender Harbour. Last year, unable to travel or have a party for Pearl's birthday, we had a little… Continue reading Pearl is 7!
My girls In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.… Continue reading Life: Almost Summer
This week our Pearl turned 5! She is feisty and goofy, hilarious and serious. She loves to follow (and enforce) rules. She likes clear boundaries and expectations and so, I hope, will thrive in school this coming fall. She likes being in charge (classic oldest sibling) and is quite competitive. She is a true introvert… Continue reading Pearl is 5!
Normally I would inundate you with photos of our town's annual Canada Day celebrations. However, this year I forgot my camera at home and took very few pictures. Not such a big deal since the parade is pretty similar every year and it's nice to just enjoy the moment, right? Except this year, Pearl was… Continue reading Canada Day 2019
A picnic at the park April, as is usual, has been a combination of brilliantly sunny days (see above) and rain. The girls have started to play in the backyard a little more but we've also had our share of indoor days, struggling through until dinner time. Putting Pearl to work With Pearl's recent birthday… Continue reading Life: A little bit of April

She loves playing with her cars and has elaborate worlds built up around her car family (as she calls them). She's very relational in her play and everything is always sorted into families. Pearl loves looking… Continue reading Pearl is 4!
Summer isn't exactly over but the end is creeping nearer. And with the smoke and haze we're currently experiencing it doesn't feel very summery now. (The smoke is from the 500+ forest fires in BC right now and much of the province is in a state of emergency so I know I can't complain just… Continue reading Summer in (sort of) Review
We're packing as much fun as we possibly can into summer around here. After our test camping trip, we hopped on two ferries and visited Vancouver Island for a few days. We went to Victoria first - one of my favourite cities and the place I lived for seven years. We still have a few… Continue reading Island Adventures
May has been full of hot days - sunshine, backyard, beach, and some ice cream! It's been fantastic. We started off the month with some time at the beach: It was Rose's first real introduction to the ocean and she loved it! Didn't even squawk when we dipped her in the sea. Pearl can happily… Continue reading May Update
Rose was six months at the very end of March and so we have started introducing solid foods. This was her face when she first tasted apple sauce. (Pearl was thrilled for Rose to start eating real food and really wanted to hold the spoon for her little sister. Later she told me that this… Continue reading Life in April
