four children + green dreams + recipes + story writing + running wild + (sanity) = where you'll find me

Our weekend includes:
one out-of-town soccer tournament and
two girls performing at a dance recital
Soccer tournaments we can do in our sleep. But this recital is a new experience.
These photos were taken while one of the girls was at the soccer tournament. She's home now, and I'll be attempting a dancer's bun shortly -- the pressure's on! The bun in these photos was courtesy of a friend and neighbour who knows what she's doing and gave me a tutorial this morning. Honestly, I'm hair-impaired. I can cut hair, and braid hair, but I hardly ever brush hair, or blow-dry hair, or attempt to make hair look sleek, tidy, neat, or professional.
As a result, we're a windblown family. But I think this little dancer loves her sleek new look.
I'm mother of four, writer, dreamer, planner, runner, photographer, taking time for a cup of coffee in front of this computer screen. My days are full, yet I keep asking: how can I fill them just a little bit more
-- with depth, with care, with pleasure.
