Having said that I have to admit that last night I had my first 'wobble', thinking about leaving Canada behind. This is where my two youngest have lived most of their lives. Max was 4 and Eva was 2 when we arrived on July 1st 2005. Eva had her best tantrums here!
As she demonstrates here...
She really wasn't happy about the one on one with Dora!
And they both started the year with ice-skating lesson...that was the only year they took ice-skating lessons! Our first snow storm, getting the kids into their snow gear, digging our way out of the drive, all things that drive me nuts about Canada, but things I will never experience again and that have been our life for the last 4 years.
The baking hot summers, barbies, walks around the pond; we have loved our summers in Unionville.
And our Jessica has grown into a young woman in her four years here. Her love of the arts has been cemented during her time here...
...we will always have fantastic memories of our Mother/Daughter trip to New York for her 16th
I have found several new loves; sewing, taking photos and blogging - all covered here:-
And my lovely, clever husband came, started a new job, conquered it and has moved on to the next.
Part of me wishes we'd spent less time flying home to England in the summers and enjoyed our limited time in our Canadian home.
Can you leave memories behind? I kind of feel like leaving this land will leave a part of us here too. Silly... isn't it? B x
