Happy things to end the week with

This week has been busy. Dylan's been attending French immersion daycamp every afternoon out in Sidney, so we've been driving an hour or two every day, getting him there and back. He's loving it though, and I can tell he's getting excited about Grade One {which begins two weeks from Tuesday!} I've had some appointments too, and the gradual build-up to the beginning of the preshool year. So yes, a busy week. And quite a good one, too. Some happy things to end the week with:

 Let's start with some flowers for your Friday {as is tradition} and our flourishing veggie garden. 

 Getting to spend three fun-filled afternoons with my sister. Sawyer and I had a great time with her and Kilian while Dylan was at French camp in their neck of the woods. We drank lattes and diet Cokes {not at the same time!} and laughed a lot.

 Freezies! Sawyer likes the red, but I'm partial to the blue ones.

 Beautiful farmland on the Saanich Peninsula, and plenty of corn-on-the-cob!

 Have you read Flat Stanley? This is "Flat Dylan."

 And "Flat Sawyer!"

Getting to see my friend Nerine and meet her beautiful baby boy, Makayo. He's so tiny!

Other happy things this week:

* phone dates with Em
* reading a book in the bath
* White Zinfandel
* Christmas shopping for the Irish cousins!
* sunshine and blue skies every day
* a different vegetarian meal for dinner each night {so far, so good}
* skyping with Cassie
* Dylan's figured out how to "pop a wheelie!"
* sending off a few fun things in the mail
* getting the playroom re-organized and clearing out a lot of old crap
* crazy sales on school supplies {love me a new box of crayons!}
* lime sorbet... so good on a hot afternoon

How was your week? Have you got a lot to love this Friday? Do tell!
