"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2021"

Jackson: This was an unwanted photo at work but I was thrilled to get it. The waitress snuck back and snapped it with my phone when we were eating at his restaurant. 

Lily: Tis the season to jump in the lake. This is surely one of many.

 Week 23 

"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2021"

Jackson: We made our first trip to Vancouver in over a year and a half to get Jackson a grad suit. This wasn't his choice, we will save that for another post, but this was a contender. He tried on several different jackets before he narrowed it down to three then he tried on the full suit. My eyes stung with tears but I pushed them away and tried to keep things light. My boy will graduate at the end of the month. I still can't believe it. 

Lily: She was thrilled to leave town and do some shopping. She got lots of new clothes, some new runners and some make-up. Of course she was happy for her brother but she was just as excited for herself on the way home. 

Week 24
"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2021"

Jackson: What would a summer be without jumping Eagle River?

Lily: Going more blonde every time she goes to the salon.

"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2021"

Jackson & Lily: They have both had their first dose. Jackson was in a separate line as he will be 18 this year but we were watching him and taking sneaky pictures as we moved up the line for Lily to get her shot. I felt a little emotional after it was over. It feels like we are steps away from going back to a new normal, one with masks but I'm all for that if it means we can see more people again. 

As ever, joining in with beautiful Donna and others for another week of Living Arrows.
