104/365 ~ waking

April 14
There is something so magical about spring especially as I watch my garden slowly waking from its winter slumber. In many ways, I feel like my soul is also waking from its own winter slumber ...

103/365 ~ gold medal

April 13
I think that from the time you start playing sports as a child you see that your responsibility to your team is to play the best that you can play as an individual... and yet, not take anything away from being part of a team.

102/365 ~ gold

April 12
Most days pass by and feel perfectly ordinary. I love ordinary days because they add up and make for a well-lived life. But then there are some days that reach from the ordinary and open up into the extraordinary. Today was one of those days for our family as our hockey loving girl and her team ended the hockey season by winning gold at Provincials.  The excitement of the win bubbled up and filled the rink and as parents we stood witness to what hard work, teamwork and passion look like in our children. It was extraordinary!

101/365 ~ pandas

April 11
We have wanted to visit the zoo every since the Panda Bear's arrived. Today was our day, although it was a little on the chilly side, it was great because we practically had the whole place to ourselves. We were grateful there were no line-ups or mobs of people trying to push to get a little closer to the animals. We were able to take our time, read all the information on each animal and savour our time with the animals and each other. 

All in all, it was a perfect day!

100/365 ~ ACES Idol

April 10

Miss C and a friend choreographed a dance, picked outfits and laced up their tap shoes and auditioned for their school's talent show. They were thrilled to be chosen as one of the 15 acts to perform, and today I sat in the audience beaming with pride as the girls danced in front of their peers with confidence. So much fun!!
