I can’t believe this visit to the Gord Kemp‘s Art Farm was over 4 years ago. Time moves so slowly and endlessly with kids and then suddenly you wipe the sleep from your eyes, look back and realize your yesterday has stretched off behind you farther than you thought. At the time, we were living in the small town of Cannington, in a home built in 1805 (yes, you read that correctly), and we were just learning how to juggle self employment with parenthood and homeownership. Not that much has changed really… we have a newer home (1890) in Kimberley, two more kids and a larger veggie garden. And we’re still learning to juggle self employment with parenthood and homeownership! But the bumps along the way shake us less, the stresses roll off our backs a bit easier and we savour the quiet moments more. We’ve also learned to stop whatever we’re doing and enjoy our kids fully when the moment strikes, or when their laugher pours out from their bellies and we peak to watch and smile. I can’t wait to see what the next four years bring… but until then we’ll enjoy our little kid board games, our early evening fires, bath time and somersaults on the bed.
