Cottage Life

     Since finishing my work as a nanny, I have been dividing my time between packing up house in the big city, and enjoying myself/tutoring at the Big Rideau. The cottage Mark's family has there is wonderful. It is such a peaceful retreat. Though we've yet to experience a weekend without cold and/or rain, we still love it. 

       So does Abigail.  She went swimming every day, rain or shine, at least once a day. She LOVES the water! She also loves playing with her cousins Quinn and Keely (Liam she missed you!). Between Auntie Beth and Grandma, Mark and I get a bit of a break at the cottage. For some reason they both really like taking Abby. Papa got a fancy new tv for the cottage that's bigger (and nicer) than any of the sets anyone has in their homes. It is GIANT. New leather furniture is being delivered to the cottage this week too, next weekend we'll think we're at a resort or something. As long as the lake, the porch, and a swing or hammock is around, I don't think Abby would notice that anything has changed.

     We ate lots of fresh strawberries, watched a fancy new television, did some creative writing, took engagement photos, and had a lot of reading time. Abby worked out a new napping schedule, played blocks and transformers with Quinn, ate and ate and ate, crawled in a million different ways, stood up a lot and used every bathtub-like basin on the property for bedtime prep. That girl is adaptable, and I love it. 

     Hope you had a wonderful weekend too!
