wilder is two

Our beloved boy will be turning 2 years old on Sunday.

He has changed so much over this past year, going from no teeth to now 18 of them, he is potty trained, talks, sings, knows his colours and ABCs, and so much more! He loves vehicles, animals, and books.

He truly lives up to his wild name, and we couldn’t love him more! Happy birthday, big boy!!

berry picking

On one particularly beautiful morning in August, we went berry picking.

We drove out to a farm near our old house in Pike Lake called Rhodes’. They offered black currants, raspberries, and Saskatoon berries. Although we went a little late in the season, we were still able to find a great selection of berries.

It was so beautiful out there. We were able to grab enough to eat and freeze in just over an hour.

The kids had a lot of fun, which made it such an enjoyable (and productive) experience. I’m almost positive that next summer, we will be returning to the same place.

tenth anniversary

Ten years of being married to you. One decade. Where do I even begin?

Our life seems to change from year to year, and although it’s had its downs, I would say that this stage of life is one of our best and strongest yet.

We worked hard to get here. It took us six years of unrelenting searching to find this acreage. Now that we are here, we are thanking God and counting our blessings everyday through conversation and as we pray. We are renovating slowly this time just so that we don’t finish it too quickly and then get an urge to move and start over again. We are mindfully adding things (like fire pits and playhouses) to our property so we can take the time to unwind throughout the day and during the night and really just enjoy this life. This life that we have built together.

We waited five years exactly before I became pregnant with our first child. Then nearly three years later we added our second. This is what works for our family. We had those wonderful years where we could solely focus on one, and now we are focusing intently on both of them. Although we do get tired, we are far from overwhelmed or stressed out. They are beautiful and sweet children, and we are so lucky to have been made their parents.

Our journey is far from over. We are strengthening our relationship with God, living meaningfully, trying our hardest to reduce our waste and preserve the planet (a far cry from previous years), learning how to be less anxious and relax more, striving to be the best parents, communicating more to improve our marriage, and trying to give back when we can. Personally, you would like to make more family traditions, advance in your career, and just have more fun. I would love to eventually have one more child and then to foster children. 

Only God knows what the next year of marriage will bring. I hope that among all the bad in the world right now, that it will begin to shift to only good for everyone on this planet. Also, that the good that comes from our family will continue forward. I love you all!
