We’ve arrived safe and sound in a snow covered Winkler. Our journey to Canada went really smoothly – once again, Jacob proving himself to be a seasoned traveller.
We had a really brilliant few weeks in the UK. It was so great to catch up with family and friends and to be back at our church. Thank you to Jean, Phil & Gill and Miv for allowing us to rest our heads in your homes and invade your lives during this visit. A huge thanks also goes to Andrew & Helen for ferrying us to and from the airport and to Sarah for the loan of your car, Billy… he’s a star! The 3 weeks flew by and, although we got to see many of the people we wanted to catch up with, it seemed way too short a visit.
That said, it’s great to be here in Canada too. This afternoon, after a month of living out of suitcases, we actually got to unpack, completely! We are so blessed to have a lot of space here at my parents for the duration of our time in Canada. After 35 years of them living in one place they decided to upgrade and buy a new house this past summer. We’ve been able to take over the whole of the basement as our own space, which is significantly bigger than any of our previous homes.
It’s been lightly snowing since we arrived. The snow is fresh and so beautiful. Yesterday we had some family photos taken by a friend of ours, Lisa Vanden Berg. Here’s us in the snow.
