being home in saskatchewan is totally soothing for me. and watching ella have a blast with my mom is over the top goodness. it was really cool watching her get used to the country too. running wild across the great expanses of grass, dirt, beach, whatever. lying on the ground picking and eating wild strawberries with my mom. experiencing what it's like to go out into the garden and pick some veggies and eat them right then and there. helping my mom plant and re-plant flowers. splashing at the lake. digging in the dirt. not afraid to be 40 yards away from me running all over at my grandma's farm. it was amazing.
and she went to sleep in about 7 seconds every night. :)
