Wow! I can't believe another year has flown by. All in all - it was a fabulous year for us! Our whole family was healthy this year; we had no hospital stays, and Ben seems to have somewhat caught up from the gaps in his learning from missing so much of grade one. Here are [...]
Ben's recovery from surgery a year later.
Ben and I just got back from a super quick trip to Montreal. We left early Thursday morning, and we were back late Friday night. It was a busy trip, but we did get a few opportunities to play tourist, which was awesome! We got in after dinner on Thursday and had dinner with a [...]
