Yesterday 163,000 new cases of covid-19 were reported in the U.S. I feel like it will be a long time still before the weight of this novel virus that I feel pressing on my chest will go away. The weight of worry a mother carries for her child’s future.
We are present and thankful. We exercise our patience and sometimes feel frustrated but we know we are okay. These pictures remind me we are more than okay.
Emma joined the clean up in the bonsai garden a couple afernoons this week. She loves to sweep up the many fallen leaves with their rustic style brooms.
I bought this adorable pinnafore on Thred Up and I was so glad that the size ten fit so well. I love buying second hand whenever possible and this Crewcuts apron style dress really caught my eye.
We played a new game called Lost Woods and it was super fun.
Been listening to maiki read great night time books like Children of Noisy Village, the stories of Betsy and Tacy and Moomin Valley. During the day Emma reads Pippi Longstocking aloud.
We have made the most of the warm weather and are ready for cooler temps to come. Emma told me she prefers to walk around the lake once it cools off and I could not agree more. We like to get bundled and go bird watching around the lake, taking in all the trees and calming open space.
Emma received Moomin characters in the mail and they fit right in to the dollhouse.
They also look super cute with our outdoor Moomin house.
