Coco bounced eagerly into our bed this morning, shouting 'SURPRISE!' and awakening us. Bens said "You're a little lark in a family of owls." Coco replied, "No, I'm not the little family lark. I'm the little family surprise!"
Eowyn, being an owl, was asleep, but in a more awake part of the day said to me, "I'm alike to you in your ways Mum and alike to Daddy in his ways, so I'm kind of a both-er!!"
My friend Nathalie, her daughter Josephine and I are very excited, as we've been invited to learn to snowboard free of charge, as part of a wonderful women's community endeavour! Can you believe that? WOW!
Bens is being so amazing, working really hard at finding work, despite the discouragements thus far. The executive director at my work, when I told him our situation, said they didn't have more work for me, BUT he is willing to connect me with other early learning and non-profit enterprises in the community, and to be a reference for me, which is encouraging.
Bens' bike still goes, and so he'll be able to whizz (carefully) around on it, which he enjoys.
Much love to this dear blogging community - 'tis such a lovely space to share with you!
Of course, now we don't have cell phones, there won't be so many pics on Bag End. Maybe it's a good opportunity for me to share words with you for a while! Thanks for reading and love,
