Here we are smack dab in the middle
of summer 2022!
It's extremely dry in my part of the province
no grass to mow
weeds grow anyway
crops are stressed to say the least
but we are treasuring the many wonderful moments ...
Off he will go on the bus to Junior Kindergarten - how can this be?

A fun evening!

who performed the daily dramas - they were fantastic!
Comforters were knotted for Mennonite Central Committee,

Offering monies were collected for Ukraine Relief,
Verses were memorized,
Songs were sung,
Stories were told,
and cereal was donated for the local food bank - a whole gym full!
No pictures but there was also blue finger jello with animal crackers on top - served in a boat like cup,
pretzel fishing nets with goldfish crackers,

a joyfilled and treasured time.
