children

2020 has brought us all a lot of unforeseen surprises, challenges, and difficulties. Yet for new parents Janice Doucette and Joey Kosolofski, their glass has always remained half full. Expecting your first child will do that to you.

A newborn’s sweet presence, perfection, and grace, reminds us all that every little thing is going to be alright. Babies urge us to slow down and enjoy the peace and quiet, together, as a new family. Throw in a pandemic and you have a recipe for extreme serenity, as no one is even allowed to visit! Sadly, Grandmas included.

Yvonne had the privilege of catching up with local artist and member of Shred Kelly, Sage McBride, to see what she does to maintain a work, life and mamahood balance.

First they roll over, camera-ready, each small change a delight of awe to a new parent. A thousand photos later and you’ve lost friends on Facebook but to you it is still magic. Then they start to scooch or crawl, eventually stand, then walk and in Fernie, they begin to climb, ski and bike. A natural progression. A marvel to witness. Infants and toddlers shift and change without resistance and without fear.

These little beings can teach us so much when we take the time to see them.

GLOWS is thrilled to be partnering with Live It to bring you Discovery Foundation Robot Week virtually from June 15-19, 2020.

What an unbelievable time to be alive! For the first time in over a hundred years, we are witnessing new and trying times as we step forward into the uncharted territory of a global pandemic. As a community, and in true Fernie fashion, we are coming together to support one another and make the best of an unknown situation.

You’re all doing a fantastic job. Just look around at what’s being done in our community, families reaching out to support one another, volunteers leaping to be there for our more vulnerable population, businesses reinventing themselves to not only make it through this but to be there for us during this time, the Elk Valley Hospital, City of Fernie, Fernie Food Share, Salvation Army, Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Fernie… and countless additional organizations working around the clock to ensure we are safe, healthy, feel secure, and that we’re going to make it through this.

Repeats every week every Tuesday until Tue May 12 2020.
