Once again, one of my goals for this year is to get out and explore Saskatchewan so a couple of weeks ago when my friend Robin asked if the kids and I wanted to head out to Petrofka Spring with her and her boys one morning I jumped at the chance!
I had actually never heard of Petrofka Spring until she mentioned it so I read a little about it online, apparently because of this spring many Doukhobors decided to settle in this area back in 1899.
Truthfully it’s a small little spring but I was pleasantly surprised to see how much the kids loved playing near it and following it.
Then we walked out the a monument set up in rememberance of the Petrofka ferry that used to be there (now there is a bridge). The kids loved playing amongst the tall grass which I loved, but was regretting a little when I flicked a tick off of Raeca’s ear later that day (and now I’m itchy just thinking about it again).
We had a great morning and it reminded me (once again) how much fun kids can have just playing in nature, it’s something I want to make a point of doing more often this summer.

Hi Friend, I would love for you to sign up for my seasonal-ish newsletter! I would love to send it monthly but I feel like in this season of my life that will probably not happen but I would like to commit to sending one out at least every three months.
In the newsletter you can expect little (or big!) life updates, what I've been reading in the Bible, and all sorts of resources I've been loving and lessons God has been teaching me.
