September already! Really, time is swift and it goes about its business in spite of what we are up to 🙂 Here is another Thursday Thoughts post as a way for us to have a bit of personal touch. I appreciate your comments here too!
Banff National Park. It is our first time going here as a family of five, and just us. As always, the mountains are stunning. Looking at their grandeur makes me realize just how small we are ( our worries, fears, and thoughts) in a big, grand Universe.
I mean, these mountains have been here long before you and I was born, and they will still be here long after we are gone. Indeed we are all passing by, so (mental note to self) why not let go of all my mental hang-ups and enjoy life?
Hankki. Inside the town is this Korean street food restaurant. We enjoyed corndogs and rice bowls filled with dumplings, veggies, meat and delicious sauce. My kind of meal!
Here is a Glossary of Mom Terms Definitely 1, 2 and 4.
First Day of School. On first days, I am both anxious and excited. This year, I am more anxious and more excited than usual. My girls are both newcomers to their school, and I feel worried that they barely know anyone. However, I am doubly excited about this new chapter. I always feel happy for them getting to experience more each year.
This time, they are first-time school bus riders. I am so glad they get to experience this together. My little girl confided at night “I was tired on the bus and Ate (big sis) let me sleep on her shoulders”. Knowing how these girls are always bickering at home, and how Faye is always super annoyed with her little sister, this confession made my day 😉 One that I will always cherish for yeaaars to come 🙂
I am wishing you all a lovely weekend!
