We’re grandparents again

The problem with having a grandchild that is not on social media means you can’t plaster pictures of the little one all over the internet. However, as we love our kids and their kids maybe it’s enough to say we are grandparents again and invite you to come see us and we’ll show you pictures!

Congratulations to Philip and Amanda and big sister Carlyle and big brother Fitz!

We love you all! We can’t wait to hold Paige!  Paige Margaret Waters.


UK bound in 1993

This is one of the posts are my being reflective of days gone by – days of long ago in many ways. See Phil and Jason with Wendy? Yup – now grown men with kids of their own. The date on the photo says May 1993. We were off to visit my folks who lived in London England. Weeks before we were to fly the airline we booked with went under and by the good graces of God we found ourselves booked, at no additional cost, on another airline.01-05-2010-18-37-23-77@ed78bdbbf51f492f8cd2db24bb840abcSo here the four of us took to the air to see another country – the first time these two went this far. Phil ended up laying down with his feet on a big burly man who welcomed his role in letting Phil be comfortable. We laughed later.

Sometimes it’s good to pull out an old photo and remember. What’s your favourite photos of?

Our recent visit


I suddenly realized that I didn’t say much our most recent visit to St. John’s NL. Of course the purpose of the trip had to do with ministry, but we also got to spend time with Jason, Susan, Rachel, Ted and Beth.  We also were able to give Ted and Beth their birthday presents – tomorrow they turn 4!  It’s hard to believe that these little people are growing up so fast.

It is always wonderful to be able to be Grandma and Grandpa – a treasured relationship to be sure. The weather was kind to us too – and as we were flying out of the airport we had a lovely sunset!  Thank you, Lord, for your blessing on us and our family.
