Well, summer is here and we are thoroughly enjoying it! Kali has been out of school since mid-June, and I (Shannon) am enjoying having her at home with me! Kalissa has been enjoying the local town parades and collecting candy at them. We also got to be part of a parade with one of the old farm tractors, and an old milktruck. The kids (Kalissa and her cousins) had a lot of fun throwing candy to all the children. We enjoy these local traditions. We celebrated Canada Day on July 1 with friends and some wonderful fireworks! This past week we headed to a local lake and enjoyed a beach day. Kalissa is currently going to Daily Vacation Bible School. She attends our church for the morning for 1 week, and learns about Jesus, and they learn new songs, have crafts, and games. She is loving it.
At the end of June, Travis was able to go on his camping fishing trip with his dad, my dad, his close friend & dad. It is turning out to be a fathers day fishing trip tradition. He looks forward to this every spring, and has a really great time.
I have been spending some time in the garden. Picked strawberries (sooo good fresh), and made lots of strawberry sauce for the freezer. Picked saskatoon berries (smaller than blueberries, and much sweeter). They are such a treat! We love eating them fresh or frozen. I have not been working a lot since Kalissa is home from school, and really enjoy my time at home.
And we are so happy to have one of our close friends back from Iraq. She has been helping out there as a nurse in the refugee camps. She is home for one month, and then she is heading back. We cherish the time spent with her.
We hope you are enjoying your summer. Praying for you!
Travis, Shannon & Kalissa
