Headwaters Nest

A Week Without Screens

Nov 17, 2014 | Bethany Lee | Back Issues | Community | Departments | In Every Issue | Winter 2014

Over the week we got into some serious battles in the mornings, pushing the time envelope until everyone had to rush off to work and school.

A New Puppy

Sep 11, 2014 | Bethany Lee | Autumn 2014 | Back Issues | Community | Departments | In Every Issue

“I like her,” he said, pulling her out from under the deck where the pups were all in various positions and states of sleep in the dry summer dirt.

Scars of Honour

Jun 17, 2014 | Bethany Lee | Back Issues | Community | Departments | In Every Issue | Summer 2014

I am lucky to say that most of the scars on my body are tiny. Each one tells a story, though.

Packed and Ready To Go

Mar 23, 2014 | Bethany Lee | Back Issues | Community | Departments | In Every Issue | Spring 2014

A beach towel. A snorkel. Shorts. Flip-flops. Beach shoes. T-shirts. Underwear. A pair of pants for cold nights. Toothbrush and toothpaste. Sunscreen.

Photographic Memories

Nov 19, 2013 | Bethany Lee | Back Issues | Community | Departments | In Every Issue | Winter 2013

Snap, snap, snap – take a photo or two, or a few for the record. Then put the camera down and just be present.

Go, Braves, Go!

Sep 11, 2013 | Bethany Lee | Autumn 2013 | Back Issues | Community | Departments | In Every Issue

It was a summer that shone so brightly for me that I will never forget it, and neither will my son.

A Farm Kid’s Reward

Jun 17, 2013 | Bethany Lee | Back Issues | Community | Departments | In Every Issue | Summer 2013

Down we would go to the CNE, with horses, food, and family squeezed in tightly.

Shining a Light on Mental Health

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research says that one in five Canadians will experience a form of mental illness at some point.

The Kids’ Table

Nov 16, 2012 | Bethany Lee | Back Issues | Community | Departments | In Every Issue | Winter 2012

For a while, we renamed it “The Employed Table,” but the retirees didn’t think that was very funny.

The Slowest Runaway

Sep 13, 2012 | Bethany Lee | Autumn 2012 | Back Issues | Community | Departments | In Every Issue

“Don’t tell Dad! Don’t tell Bethany! Stop telling everybody in this world!”

Fridge Friends

Jun 19, 2012 | Bethany Lee | Back Issues | Community | Departments | In Every Issue | Summer 2012

I like the idea of being adopted into another family’s fridge Bill of Rights, of being accepted on this most basic level. It says, “What’s mine is yours” and “I trust you not to judge me.”

Mother and Son

Mar 21, 2012 | Bethany Lee | Back Issues | Community | Departments | In Every Issue | Spring 2012

We perfect our children’s histories through scrapbooks we can show our friends.
