one week, unplugged.
Today we head out for our second annual ‘cottage’ week. Cottage is in quotes because it’s really a week-away-in-a-beautiful-house.
It’s going to be a week of…
tire-swiging. The kids refer to this place as ‘tire swing cottage’! And yes, most likely crazy-hair-for-Elizabeth-tire-swinging-and-doing-just-about-everything-else since I cannot keep an elastic in her hair to save my life!
car playing with the cottage cars. and his own. Alexandre will add a few of his own and know the difference and come home with exactly what he brought. Incredible, since to me they’re all “cars”. But he knows.
remeniscing that last year, this same week, we were a family of four knowing we would become a family of five in January. by far the biggest change from last year to this year. It’s hard to remember what it was like to be a family of ‘only’ four.
… it’ll be a week of celebrating a papa’s birthday, swimming, laughing, good food, better company… and no television + internet!
