letter to trinity: 69 months

Dear Trinity,

Well, it looks like we got through another winter. The snow is finally melting and we are bracing for the next week of rain, if the weather forecast holds up. That's ok though. Better rain than snow this time of year, and puddles were made to be jumped in.

We had a pretty eventful March. With your first year of school came your very first March break, and I took a few days off to spend time with you and your Mom. We took a little overnight road trip to take you to Science North in Sudbury, and really just to have an excuse to stay in a nice hotel. You spent plenty of time in the pool, and the hot tub. And as nice as Science North was, I think you would have been just as happy to keep your bathing suit on.

One down side of the trip was that I came home with Salmonella food poisoning (thanks a lot Pizza Hut), and you came home with an ear infection. So the weekend before you went back to school ended up being a bit of a bed-ridden mess, but we got through it just fine.

I have been taking some trips for work lately, and I try to come back with a little something whenever I can for my princess. Sometimes I bring you back something girly and typical, but I took the opportunity to visit Silver Snail, a comic shop in Toronto so I could get you something more in line with our shared interests, and when I found the Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver, I knew I had a winner. Its no TARDIS yet, but its a start, and its something no respectable Time Lord should be without.

We ended up hitting the slopes again, one last time before the season ended, and this time we brought your Mom with us. It was a lot of fun for both of you to be learning together, and we ended up with perfect weather for the day. It was pretty fun watching you take the tow lift on your own all the way up to the top, but this time, we skipped the more challenging runs.

And what would return of the warmer weather be without bubbles?

I love you so much Trin.
