their seemingly endless energy, unbridled enthusiasm and love of spontaneity is part of what I love so much when we are together.
These precious hours never fail to put a smile on my face and time passes so quickly that I always snap a few photos to preserve these special moments.
Gyro Park Octopus
children can climb inside the head and slide down the arms of the octopus.
A glorious September afternoon for a some playtime at the park.
Henry loved the zip line!

The mythical sea creature that has been seen over the years
swimming in Cadboro Bay.
(like the Loch Ness Monster)
Peek a boo!
Our darling Mira loves to play like the big kids.
She climbs up the steep steps of the slide and then delights in sliding down.

Dallas Road Beach
the waterfront staircase and turret painted by Victoria's artist in residence.
A driftwood hut
a great spot for the grandchildren to explore and use their imagination.
Isla had fun playing inside the structure and after playing inside we hunkered down and got serious about digging for beach glass!
Our September weather has been mild and sunny which makes it easy to get out and have fun in the afternoons and on the weekends when Isla is not at school.
I remember start of the school years as a young student...
new pencils and fresh pink erasers
pots of glue
new skirts and blouses
a lunch kit
all the things that I needed to make a great start to the school year.
So many years ago...
but the memories are still fresh.
And now it's Isla's turn to experience
the newness of her books
the fresh pencils
clean pink erasers
a new pencil box
Time to forge memories of her own which she'll keep for years to come.
My goodness but time passes quickly...
At the age of 62
I have countless memories and experiences
enough to fill up many many books!
Feeling so grateful that I am able to share such lovely days with my family.
September is fresh with newness and I am starting a few new projects of my own.
How about you?
Have you got something new on your radar?
