For our family it's been a wonderful summer with lots of change and even some significant new beginnings. But in between packing up our previous house and moving into a new one, we also got to celebrate the beauty of a sister's wedding, enjoy Newfoundland for the first time, and spend time with many loved ones first in Yew York then in Ottawa then in Prince Edward Island. Between the blessed busyness of packing and travelling and vacationing, I also had a busted computer for the past month so I kind of wound up taking an unplanned blogging break. But now, before the summer concludes and a new season begins, I'm itching to get some pictures posted before they fade into the background and out of memory.
So here we go. The summer in pictures. I plan to post quite a few summer posts in the next couple days, get caught up, and be ready for a return to writing articles on here in September. Browsing through all these pictures quickly like this, I'm reminded afresh of what a wonderful summer it's been and I'm filled with thanks for the time we were able to spend with people we love in places we love.
A NEWFOUNDLAND HIKE & SWIMMING IN A WATERFALL
My sister shared some of the beauty of Newfoundland with us and took us on a (child-length) hike that took us to this amazing rocky waterfall. The kids (and Justin) had an amazing time swimming in the icy cold fresh water and enjoying the glorious mountains that surrounded us. It was a very cool experience.
