Make It Count

Winter Edition

Looking back through my photos I found these little gems from our winter activities...thank goodness the sun is coming back!

Amelie loves to steal the camera...I like this photo she took of me above!


We've been doing a lot of water colours....


...and having morning teas outside when possible!
