We celebrated the beginning of September and the end of summer holidays with a family-focused long weekend at home - family selfie in the backyard.
I have always wanted to try a potter's wheel - 4Cats in Steveston was offering an evening intro session and I gave it a go. My bowl is a little wonky - it's much harder than it looks!
The traditional back to school photos...Adam's first day of Sauder for his second year at UBC and Colin's first day of his last year in the K-12 public school system. Grade 12 is a big year - full of events, mark-related stress and uncertainty about the future. It should be a joyful year and we are trying to stay focused on that! Neil is back as principal at McMath for another year and I am continuing to work at the school board office as a K-12 teacher consultant for our school district - lots going on in the education world this fall, exciting times.
September skies are some of my favourites - earlier sunsets, often tumultuous clouds over the ocean - lots of walking and time outside this September...even in times of change and loss, there is so much to be thankful for.
