The Week(s) in Photos

Since we had a guest appearance from chicken pox this past week, this post is actually two weeks of moments. It was a totally different dynamic having all four children home this week – and mostly a good one. The younger ones loved having a new element to their play, a leader to train them in the importance and practice of exercise and sport, and even a babysitter while I was out running errands and at a photo shoot.

We’ve been cooped up, trying not to expose anyone at risk of complications to chicken pox, and so far, the younger three haven’t had a single symptom. Maybe it’s too darn cold here for the airborne virus to survive! It dipped as low as -49 C with the wind chill around these parts. Currently -37 C.  Our old house isn’t well insulated, meaning the main floor is like a refrigerator. Here we thought we’d get it all over with at once and be done with it… looks like we might be seeking out a chicken pox party with friends in the near future.

Lots of board games have been brought out, we put a chocolate twist on this latest batch of elderberry syrup, there were several forts, some music making, olympics love, a sleepover at the lake house with grandparents, and a birthday celebration. We didn’t take many photos this week – just some shots of my aunt’s lovely vintage shop, some puzzle and block play, and the infusion of spring found in a sweet bouquet from a friend’s flower shop.

For those interested, Milo’s sweet wooden village can be found here, and the two board games are Catan Junior and Wildcraft (not an affiliate link – we just love Learning Herbs) – both beloved by the kids.
