It's October and it's still hot outside! There will be snow by the end of the month. The leaves are about 50% fallen, and probably 75% by the end of the day. We are spending as much time outside as we possibly can. Yesterday, we went to Meewasin Park. Meewasin means "beautiful valley". I took some handquilting with me to work on.
Here's where I got to sit while my children played in the giant sandbox! It overlooks the South Saskatchewan River. It was hot enough that my boy got to run around barefoot without a shirt on.
Gee, the leaves look really gone here! Depending on the tree, some are still fully green. My newly homeschooled 7 year old was begging me for my camera. So I passed it to him. Here's some really great photos he took!
There's so much action in that picture! I love it! ; ) here's more... I'm stitching spirals on my Mama Bear quilt.
He got closer and closer until the camera lens was right on the quilt! lol SO I asked him to back up a little. I love how these are all tilted. ; )
This one in particular is a great "action" shot! lol
I hope you enjoyed Liam's photos. : )
Today is another gorgeous repeat of yesterday. It's Saturday and the kids are home. I have a lot of projects I want to try to complete, so I think we'll get to the parks after supper. It's getting darker and darker at an earlier time each night, so playing at 7 pm means bringing our flashlights. I love taking my kids out to play in the dark. It makes for such great memories! That's probably why I like winter. We are far north enough that by 5 pm, it's pitch black outside! If it's a mild night, then we all go play in the snow. When the moon is out, everything glows & shines & sparkles, and you don't even need lights. It's so great!
