Hello! What have you been up to? Life has been quite busy here! A few things that happened:
- Léo lost his first 2 teeth in one single morning and that same afternoon broke two bones in his left wrist!
- I voted in the French presidential elections. The far right (racist) party has made it to the second turn and I am quite frightened for my country. Obviously I'm voting Macron in a week.
- I traveled to Honduras for work for a few days. it's always good to connect with the team face-to-face.

This weekend, we don't have anything planned. I foresee us going to the pool, watching ice hockey, and doing some chores. What about you? I wish you a relaxing and vibrant weekend!

Here are a few links I've enjoyed:

The case for more black teachers.

This is such an infuriating part of peace missions.

A beautiful (and law-changing) marriage in pictures.

Self care for parents is a must.

This is the reality of marriage.

This podcast episode is worth a listen. So tender and heartbreaking.

I loved this book and didn't know about its main topic.

This made me laugh so hard.

Hi there. I'm a day late! This weekend is big in our house as we're celebrating Léo's 6th birthday with friends tomorrow and with family on Sunday (his actual birthday). I wish you a happy weekend. Here are a few links I've liked:

The race was about race.

After reading about the Pepsi ad scandal, I did a little Googling. Here is a good summary of cultural appropriation.

Like a lot of us, this attack revolted me. But the US counter attack didn't sit well with me either.

This is a problem that needs to be fixed.

I'm starting this book. I hope to create such a group (secular, maybe, since I don't have a church?)

I love this color and this dress looks so comfy.
