Home; Away From Home

My final week in Tactic involved attending 6 meals at people's homes, a farewell service after church, 3 days of medical clinic where we served over 400 people, many errands and sales, and my first soccer game. Far too many feelings and occurrences to record here.

We flew in to Edmonton on Friday night with over 460 lbs of luggage. We flew over bright yellow canola fields and around thunderstorms before landing and meeting my sister and bro-in-law. As we pulled out onto the highway, bright rainbows had settled onto Leduc and Nisku.

My son turned 3 today. We left Canada when he was 2 1/2 months old.

UP: I've got a teaching job in Calgary - but I haven't got a home yet. I'm at my mom's in Red Deer for now.

Walter: Gracias, he pasó a Blaise.

Dawn: Thanks. It was really cool to see you last weekend. Looking forward to a visit to your petting zoo.

Welcome back Zaak.It's been quite the journey for you guys. I remember when Blaise was that tiny. It's so trite to say they grow up fast, but sheesh, where does the time go?
