It's been a while since I blogged. I often formulate great blogs in my mind, but never do get around to posting them. Life here though continues to be busy, and good. Work has been great. I love the challenges and am seeing great progress in our programs and staff (more on that in a future post). Bruce and I are truly enjoying being back in Ontario. We are getting to see our kids on a regular basis, we got to be there for James at his convocation (more about my thoughts on that in a future post), and we have developed a wonderful relationship
with the twins as we see them growing.
Last week, we did our usual and booked a cottage for a week (in Barry's Bay, just outside of Algonquin Park), leaving it open for the kids to come up when and if they wanted. It's a wonderful, peaceful area as 90% of the land surrounding the lake is crown land, so it is unspoiled and will stay that way with no future development. Everyone came and spent a bit of time. It was a great week. Here's some pics:

Looking up from the road to our site where our new trailer will go
That's right folks! We loved the area so much that we bit the bullet and bought a trailer. There was 1 spot that had come available on a quiet private road in the resort park. It has water views, and there are about 8 trailers that share the dock and small beach area. It is tucked away from the rest of the "resort" where the playground, large docks and more public beach are. It's beautiful. The trailer is a "cottager" trailer that is 14 ft wide, has 2 bedrooms, a full bath and a large open concept living room, dining room and kitchen with full size appliances. It comes fully furnished. It should be in place on the lot by the end of this week, so LOOK OUT WEEKENDS, HERE WE COME! Our own "Happy Place" in God's paradise!
