british columbia

Today we bid farewell to this family
as they begin their move to British Columbia.
It has been a month that went by way too fast . . .

this could be an endless job

loving "old" Fisher Price toys

a visit from the amazing lady 
who cared for our children while we worked
it is such a blessing to know her

one last sleep in Grandma Mary and Pa Jim's room

a new adventure begins

such mixed emotions

about two miles out of town Cedar said to his mother
"It takes so long to get to Canada"
