Spring break smiles


It’s Friday, the last day off from school for the “spring” break. It’s been snowing off and on since Saturday, which really put a damper on things. But we made our own fun. My sister and her kids (and dog) were here for five days, which was both crazy and awesome. Today the kids and I took the Spec-Tran to the nearby roller rink. I don’t skate because I don’t care for pain, but my kids love it. Only Natalie wore some low cut socks and quickly developed a painful blister. She’s pictured above, soaking her feet in a warm Epsom salt bath. And of course that’s her brother Luke photo bombing with the bunny ears. He thinks he’s funny, and sometimes he’s right. I guess.

That is all I’ve got for now. Happy Friday folks!

  1. Hi Mindy!

    My name is Megan Dijong from TheNewFamily.com, I am the project manager for the New Family’s 1,000 Families Project, which has won us Best Blog by the Canadian Online Publishing awards. What we do is find 1000 families with interesting and unique lifestyles, traditions, and relationships. Your story can even be about friends who you consider family. We ask that you talk about a personal or unifying growth that you’ve experienced with your family and friends. We believe that everyone has a story to tell and what we’re aiming to do is find 1000 ways to be a family.

    We would be honoured to have your story featured on our blog. If you are interested please let me know, I will then follow up with a guideline on how to write a 1000 families post. We require that our writers contribute a short story with a minimum of 750 words, along with a family picture. Once we have your story we will promote your blog by linking your story to your blog so that our Canadian readers can refer to it after reading. Your story will also be featured on our Facebook and Twitter page. In the meantime, you can check us out athttp://thenewfamily.com/tag/1000-families-project/

    Looking forward to hearing from you, have a great day!
