It's so sad. We came back from the camp from our last week up at our trailer. I spent the morning looking out at the waters of Howe Sound, the sun sparkling like a pool of diamonds on the water's surface. It was so relaxing and restful - I didn't want to leave, but life goes on. This summer was a good one, albeit a sad one with Sheena leaving for Regina. I keep telling myself it's only for five months, she'll be back. I miss the children - especially the new one who we've barely got to know.
I felt a certain bond with Allie the week Sheena came to the trailer to spend some time with us. It was such a good time to be with the grandchildren - I slept with Isaac all week and we got to know each other in a completely different way. Usually he just comes to visit - but 24/7 with him was a real treat. Hosea usually stays away from me, like he does with most people, but there were a few times that he allowed me to be present with him in his reality!
Here are some lovely pics from that time together.
Isaac - this picture paints a true picture of this active and delightful little boy. He was teething something awful that week, but he found some time to enjoy the playground.
Hosea, the cool dude. Mr. Aloof - don't come in my space, man, invitation only!
Here is baby Allie - my new nick name for her is Allie-cat! Sheena doesn't like it, I'm sure, but I really think it's cute. Here she is modelling one of the latest creations knitted by Nana - a lovely cotton number with cables and seed stitch - of course the little bunny buttons make a cute touch to finish off the garment.
So my summer has been one of relaxation and rest - enjoying the fellowship of the other campers and hanging out with our new friends, the Cross family. We've been really blessed this year. This is the first summer in a long time that my vacation wasn't sick time for me. This new medication is working wonders and I have more energy than I've had for a long time. I can only pray that God will continue to keep me going through the next busy work season.
