and it seems to be flying by!
Our Little Man has already been here for a month………
One thing about living in Canada is that we have a year of Maternity leave, most of the time the Mom uses the full year but parents are allowed to split the time off. Now I realize not all countries have this but we do and now that I’m a Grandma I really think we Grandmas should also get at least a 6 month leave from work to enjoy our little bundles…..or better yet retirement with full pay/benefits etc so that we are available to enjoy and help out.
He has stolen all of our hearts of course, especially mine…
And what can I say about his Mom. I am so proud of my daughter, what a wonderful Mommy our little guy is blessed with!!
On other news We have been to Duluth twice in the last month, first for Erik’s Birthday (just the two of us) and a second trip as a day trip to take the girls shopping.
We took these pictures at Gooseberry Falls, they were amazing! We visited last summer and there was hardly any water compared to this
We’ve also been busy with other projects that have been keeping me outside.
and I’ve always wanted to run….so I’ve been working on that this summer at this point my runs are half walking and half running and I’m out for about 45 min. I think its best to work my way up and avoid any injuries. I’m really enjoying myself!
In less than a month we’ll be heading off on Vacation….a very exciting trip for sure!
for now though I’m still working my full time job and then fitting in everything else and for the last month my quilting has been on a hiatus but the itch is there and it won’t be long before I get back at it.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summers too…
