For the kids, Halifax means...
|Playing with Selah, Imma's new dog|
... at Imma's house and at friends' houses
Queensland beach, the day we went... Lots of people on the sand but very few in the water.... Disappointingly too cold for us Asian water temperature spoiled people... But that didn't stop Grace from trying at least!
At Imma's, at their house... Wherever we are, lots of noise and lots of fun!
Practicing for that perfect s'more I think we got pretty close....
|Sandy beach days|
|Hanging out with cousins|
For the kids, Argyle means...
Exploring the places of Mommy's growing up...
... Mommy looking like Imma, talking with Imma's friend in a place they went often!
...and Mommy actually did crash the boat!! Well, only scraped up on a rock between two islands, but still... Aiden was pretty worried we'd have to swim :o)
Aiden has wanted to fish for ages, so our friend who took us sailing brought along some rods and we all got to feel the thrill of catching fish. Although now the kids are spoiled for "ordinary" fishing as every cast caught a fish in under a minute!

For Mom and Dad, a bit of what Halifax & Argyle means...
Giving Imma grandma time with kids
Catching up with family and friends -
so much great talk and good food!
Very full days charging and draining us
Alive in prayer
Juggling family fun, rest, ministry.
Moving Imma to her new house - so perfect for her!
Enjoying precious evenings of talk over tea
Sharing childhood experiences with our own kids
Michael had to make a weekend trip back to Toronto for his grandma's funeral
We flew to St John's without the kids for a weekend to speak at a few gatherings of our soon return to Asia
Pressure to finish work leftover from before we came
So many people we didn't get to connect with!
Maybe, we'll just have to go again....
