Here the kids are at a nice park at the University of British Columbia, looking all cute together :-)
Greta turned 7!!! What?!
We went to the beach with my friend Kristie and her daughter Lucy, who is one of Greta's best friends, a few Saturdays ago. Greta even went swimming in the ocean, it was that warm!
Beforehand Greta was almost open to the idea of doing it as well, but afterwards when the lady asked her she said adamantly "No thank you!!"
So...summer is coming. Many things are wrapping up and it's coming to my attention that another school year is nearly finished and soon I will have a Grade 2 child and a kindergartner!!! Wow. Time is flying. I am excited for the girls to be in school together and try out the Montessori program. It will be a new adventure. But in the meantime we are all looking forward to summer--to relaxing, and traveling, spending hours in the sun and at the pool, and to all the special summer festivities that come up each year. It reminds me of the beautiful picture book I had as a child "Over and Over", about the rhythms of the year. Now Greta reads it out loud to herself in her bed :-)
