"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Rachel is still happy but she is looking pretty grayish to us.  This morning, the thought struck me - 'what if Rachel dies while the kids are out in Manitoba?'  I want them to be able to say their goodbyes to her too. And what would that be like?'  It's not that I worry often about this - it was just a passing thought. But I am always aware of how things could change.  At the same time, Dave and I are having a really great time here!! He is off to go for a walk at Nose Hill and I think I'll go sit in the sun room for awhile before we pack up.  I love that room and so seldom get to make use of it....

I know that I feel more relaxed (than I thought I would) about the kids being gone because we know they are having the time of their lives with their grandparents!! As they drove throught the prairies, we received several updates by text.  Ethan was singing along to Cohen's Halleluiah song and making up his own worship songs.  I loved that one!! We got updates on how much sleep they were getting too.  They were up at 4am and Ethan slept only 20 minutes after that, before they arrived in the evening.  When we talked to Ethan on the phone at the end of the day, he sounded like he was still full of energy.  He told us about his drawings that he made on the trip.  We know that this is so GOOD for the kids and we are so thankful!

I'm so glad that the travelling is going well. I talked to Dave's mom on Fri night and she wasn't sure what to expect so it's good to hear that the kids are doing well.
Enjoy your relaxation.

Hi and we hope you feel a little better after some refreshing time to yourselves. Also , would it be possible to have the print a little larger? It is quite hard to read when so small - thank you
