Easter Sunday my Facebook feed was blown up with photos of extravagant Easter baskets and celebrations. Baskets weren’t just baskets. They were bikes, and scooters, and board games and heaps of clothing – just to name a few things. Facebook makes everything seem bigger, this I know. It opens up a whole new world we […]

I’m not really sure how Friday got here so fast, but it did and I’m not complaining! We’ve got a fairly low-key weekend planned, movie night at school tonight, swim lessons and some time with friends on Saturday. There’s rumor that there might be some snow on Sunday. Here’s hoping it’s the last of the […]
