First Snowfall of the Winter November 11, 2010
Oh my, it's been such a long time since my last post! The time really has flown by! In June, we bought a newer house, just down the street from our old one and spent the end of June and beginning of the summer getting settled. We managed to get in some camping with family and a trip to Winnipeg and area for a week with a friend and her two daughters, over the summer. Then, it seemed it was time to get ready and go back to work. Working full time and caring for a child is wonderful, but can be quite busy and challenging at times, I am finding out (as you all know). I am glad for the snow that we received early this year, (and I mean SNOW!!!), and even the colder temperatures, as it has forced me inside to get some things done in the house, including report cards, uggghhh!
Speaking of snow, Maya LOVES it and she loves being outside! Now that we have figured out which jacket and mittens to wear together so they don't separate and she doesn't get snow on her wrist, it's great! She is so funny and entertaining these days and it's wonderful to see her language developing. On Friday Les and I received time outs - hmmmm, I wonder how daycare is going??? Maya turns three at the end of January and we hear about her birthday coming up almost daily - we hear about everything, actually - she has such good memory and she doesn't miss a thing that goes on! I have included some recent pictures and will try to post some more from over the past few months later on.
I have posted videos on youtube of Maya in the snow if you are interested in taking a peek. I have had to take a course called 'Learning, Language and Lovin' It' through work - about children's language, and have several short clips of Maya in the snow, for course purposes.
