A different Canada day weekend

So to begin…. tbis weekend marks the beginning of Wendy’s new appointment! She’s now on the 7th floor with me so that’s great. Her role is really interesting and she’ll be doing lots of detail work which is one of her real strengths.

This also marks the beginning of our 9th year at THQ.  Four appointments for me, three for Wendy.

We’ve never lived in one house so long!  Seven years in Calgary was our longest.

Susan had posted this photo and I really liked it – it shows the grandkids playing and really gives you an idea how they are growing up!  No little kids…they’re developing in many ways.  I took that to zoom in a bit on Rachel who’s in the middle of swinging from one bar to another.  I remember when you had to hold her to do this!

Sunday morning Wendy and I did the installation service at Agincourt Corps…okay community church… and how happy we are to welcome the Allens. We’re off to a good start and their strength to build trust and relationship will be a great plus for our congregation and work.

It’s a long weekend but we didn’t go to the trailer…for the first time ever, we were too tired!  So relaxing in the backyard was a welcome change. And of course, it was nice and warm. While spring seemed too cool and too wet finally the heat of summer rewards our patience!

Summer also brings one of our favourite things to do – do some gardening and here comes the first tomato of the season.  I can hardly wait for others. Fresh tomatoes are the best.

Six years ago this weekend we were at the trailer and so were Jason, Susan and Rachel.  Here is that little girl with an ice cream cone.  I’m looking forward to buying her a few more this summer! She’s soon going to be with us for two weeks along with Ted and Beth!

And yes it was even my turn, with the grass cut and trimmed to sit and enjoy the sun. Is there anything nicer than having a place to relax, to be able to be quiet, to be able to turn off the phone, the screens, the agenda – even for a few hours and recharge. That was this weekend.

Kentville NS

The weekend in Kentville went by incredibly fast, but then we were really busy! Josh and Joyce had a great plan in place and their people engaged and busy.  This area is not well known to me, so a quick trip through Wolfville and area left us with the impression that this is likely an area of the country under appreciated. Lots of services, retail and agricultural plus a wonderful sense of a rural area but small enjoyable towns.  We even wondered if this is a good area to consider for retirement.

We had a terrific time with the people there and enjoyed seeing some good work in the community by The Army.

Then time to come home – back to our responsibilities.

It’s always good to come home.
