GET BACK OUT

AS MUCH AS I LOVE WINTER & THE COZINESS IT BRINGS, I LOVE THE RETURN OF THE LIGHT & WARMTH THAT GETS EVERYONE BACK OUT. WYA IS OUR GO TO HIDDEN GEM, WE'RE OFTEN THERE ALONE BUT NOW HAPPILY SHARING IT WITH MY NIECE WHO JUST MOVED BACK HOME FROM THE CITY WITH HER TRIBE. 

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE SEEING KIDS BE KIDS & PLAYING WITH ORIGINAL PLAYSTATIONS! SO MANY KIDS (& ADULTS) CONNECTED TO SCREENS THESE DAYS, SO WHEN I SEE THIS, I KIND OF LOVE IT!!

BECAUSE CHILDHOOD MEMORIES ARE NEVER TV SHOWS OR IN NINTENDO'S, THEY ARE HERE IN THESE MOMENTS. 

MANY OF OUR FIRST NATION ELDERS HAVE SHARED ABOUT HOW SPECIAL THESE PLACES ARE IN OUR TRADITIONAL TERRITORIES, WHERE THEY TOO ONCE PLAYED AS CHILDREN,

SO OF COURSE, OUR CHILDREN TOO SHOULD KNOW THESE PLAYGROUNDS & GET TO SHARE THOSE MEMORIES. 


REGARDLESS OF HOW OLD OUR CHILDREN ARE, NEVER TOO OLD TO PLAY OUT, TO SLEEP ON THE BEACH & SWIM IN THE OCEAN.

SO GRATEFUL I HAVE A NIECE WHO SHARES THESE SAME VALUES. ALWAYS WANTING OUR KIDS TO HAVE EVERYTHING WE HAD. 

SHE'S MAKES HOME FEEL LIKE HOME AGAIN. XO
