So the amazing Jenny (of Reading the End) has this going for Sundays:
The only guidelines are that you write about something that kept you on your feet that week, whether that’s a person that inspired you, an action you took that you’re proud of, a book or movie or TV show that nourished your heart, a self-care strategy that worked for you, a goofy event or moment that brought you joy. Whatever it is, every Sunday, I want you to tell me something that matters to you.
1. We took the kids to their first ever movie at a cinema! My boys are 4 and 6 and my older boy is the kind of kid who gets so emotionally vested in movies that he sobbed so hard when watching The Good Dinosaur, and for a while would just have to leave the room when watching some other movies. So we weren’t sure how he would do but luckily the Ninjago movie was just perfect for both of them. And they had a blast. Oh and those comfy seats that recline also helped!
2. I got my first Meyer lemons of the season! We planted this dwarf Meyer lemon tree last year and there were a few fruits but this season I’m hoping to get more!
3. The first grader’s school had a MidAutumn Festival (half of the classes at the school belong to a Mandarin immersion programme) and he had been working hard for a month, learning to sing two songs in Mandarin, and while I had attended every rehearsal, it was great to finally have everyone else see their performance!
4. Also, mooncakes, a beautiful harvest moon, and a walk around our estate with lanterns (an Angry Bird and a Percy) made for a pretty good week.
How was yours?
