Tag Archives: Fitz


Fitz Waters is now 3!  Sorry, no pictures….but he’s as cute as they come.  He’s all boy!  He loves cars and trucks and making the roaring sound of the engines.  He can do “be do, be do, be do” if the truck is backing up.

He seems to love telling me about his cars and trucks and he’s not prone to whisper.

He loves lining up his cars – he’ll put them in long lines and then move them one by one by one along “the road”.

Fitz loves his sisters, his Mom and Dad and his grandparents.  When we do a video call he loves to get close to the screen and tell us what he’s doing.  When we called yesterday to say happy birthday he was eating berries and watch CARS 3.

We live too far away but maybe not forever.

It’s wonderful being a grandpa!!


An Alberta weekend

It’s been almost 10 years since we left Calgary. An entire decade has passed since we received a phone call to tell us that we would be moving from Calgary as part of a pilot program to introduce the roll out of area commander. Wendy and I would later that summer move to Edmonton but initially, we were told it might be Alberta or Ontario. In the end, it was Edmonton.

Our time in Calgary was wonderful and seven years at Glenmore Temple were some of our favourite years of ministry. Returning to the platform this weekend was like coming home, and I enjoyed every minute.

While we were there we connected with Phil, Amanda, Carlyle and Fitz. The kids are growing quickly and Fitz now scurries around the floor like a soldier crawling on his belly to the front line! He’s a happy boy with energy and curiosity. Carlyle is smart and loves to spell, colour, make crafts and cuddle with her little brother. Dave and Sue graciously allowed us to crash their home for a few hours and share a meal with us.

We did get out to Canmore and celebrated Phil’s 30th birthday by his making us an amazing roast beef dinner! It was delicious.

It’s great to be with family, even briefly.
