I'm so excited about designing and decorating our space as a FAMILY space, absolutely FULL of our personalities. I'm planning on a huge framed tackboard in the diningroom where I can have a rotating gallery of the kids art work up all the time.
I'm hoping that in addition to the attic renovation and the fence post putting in that we can get a lot of painting done while the kids are in Ottawa. At the very least the kitchen bathroom and diningroom - the rooms that get constant use in a 6 person household. Cause if I don't get to them when there are fewer people in the house I won't be able to!

Obviously, I haven't been blogging.
I've always tried to blog about the joyous things in our lives, as a record of our lives, for my kids and far flung family. In the past year I've been wrestling with a lot of unbloggable dark stuff from my childhood and once I decided to confront it, blogging about the simple joys felt too much like a cover.
So I needed to step away.
I'm ready to move on and get back to blogging.
The big news is that we're moving! We've bought a farmhouse with a barn on a half acre with a further 2.5 acres we can use for grazing our livestock. We move end of June! I've set up a blog for it, and we'll move our blog at the same time.
The kids are all very excited, even Darkmirror who dislikes change - he gets a beautiful view of the Gaspereau Ridge and the winery's fields of grapes from his bedroom window.
In the meantime here are a few pictures from my last download from the camera
Wild Thing and Darkmirror cook dinner together once a week (or so...we're working on regularity!). They make "This is why you're fat" big manly bad for you meals - like these insane nachos.
wild Thing, Nature Girl and sprout have given up civilization at bedtime and are sleeping in a gypsy camp they've made in the basement. They're all itching to go camping again!
Wild Thing and his first sandy wet toes of the season. The day I took this he arrived at the beach in a down filled coat and winter boots. The water was about 3 degrees? He had an AWESOME time.
