As part of our weekend getaway to the North Shore we took part in several events at the Family & Intergenerational Learning Weekend at the North House Folk School. Friday evening we participated in the Contra Dance, Saturday my daughter and I took an afternoon knitting class (where she learned the craft and I worked out all of my bad habits) and Saturday evening we joined in a wood-fired pizza bake with other families that participated in classes and offerings over the weekend. We had a lot of fun connecting as a family, meeting some new people and participating in these fun events at the North House Folk School.
Late last week a controlled burn expanded into a wildfire in our neck of the woods. James with his wildland firefighter training, was contracted out to help. It has been a busy time in our family, with the daddy putting in long days and this mama keeping things in motion around home and school. But we survived, the firefighters were able to get the fire under control and no structures were affected by the fire. Now that things are greening up and rain is in the forecast, things should be quieting down.
