Looking back

Last Saturday Wendy and I joined Catherine (I think I am the only one who still calls her Catherine), to help our Mom work through the process of preparing to move to the Meighen Retirement Residence.  It was sure fun to be together and to work to accomplish this task – not that we got it all done!

What we did find was lots of great photos that we had to stop and review and remember days gone by!  Isn’t it interesting how some photos take you back to the moment they were taken and you can see, hear, even smell the setting?

I think you can have two reactions to these kinds of events.  You can look back with fondness and regret that so much time has passed, perhaps wonder if you’ve wasted time or missed opportunities, perhaps even recounted errors in judgement.  Or you can look back with fondness and thank God for the people we’ve known and loved, be thankful for the days lived well and acknowledge lessons learned and blessings received.

Even the things which we wish were different can lead us to thankfulness that we had the opportunity to learn.

At any rate – a couple of photos from last Saturday.


A Saturday Outing

Rachel seems to really like being in the van

What a wonderful Saturday…warm, sunny, and nothing pressing to be done.  And Rachel got a chance to go off with her Grandma and Grandpa…she seemed to enjoy the travel and the various stops along the way.  But what she really enjoyed was eating her Grandpa’s french fries!

This girl just never seems to sit still

Why look she’s sitting still but just for a moment

Hiding and seeking at the trailer

Father & daughter

We had a wonderful Saturday out at the trailer with Jason, Susan and Rachel.  It was warm and sunny – and Rachel was her usual happy, active self.  With a BBQ planned for supper and the trailer all set up these days to welcome guests we have time for just being together.

We took a walk down to the playground….not that it couldn’t use some upgrades but that’s another post…and Rachel just loves the swing!

Rachel, Susan and Jason

We’ve been playing hide and seek with her for a few months now (I type that like she’s ten years old…!) and it was fun to see her decide to try and play hide and seek with us!  Below she is hiding from me behind her Dad’s leg!  I think she’s going to have a good sense of humour.

She was also trying to imitate some of the sounds of her “barnyard friends”…we’ll capture that on a video which I’ll post in the next day or so.

Father’s Day and we’re missing Philip and Amanda…but glad they are doing well if not very busy with school, work and life.

The peeking

The laughing!
