anticipation

summer for me will be taking an abrupt turn starting today. my daughter and her husband and 3 kiddos are arriving from st. john's. this is finn's first trip to corner brook. he is almost 7 months old. sitting but not yet crawling. lucy is 4 and eamon 9. they'll all stay for a week and then go home, leaving eamon with us for a couple more weeks. lucy has been invited to stay behind too (eamon started his summer vacations with nana and poppy when he was 4). but lucy (who always knows exactly what she wants) says she will start when she is 6. lots of adventures planned. lots of cooking and cleaning and hiking and swimming and stories. perhaps some more dyeing of alders (i got a big propane cooker and pot yesterday so this can now be done outside). some carding and spinning with many little fingers involved. summer...
