VISIT FROM DOWN UNDER

Miranda and Ralph at Elora Quarry Note: Hover your mouse over the photos for descriptive text. Click on photos to enlarge the image.

Our daughter Miranda and her husband Ralph visited from Australia from June 25 to July 25, 2008. Although our agenda was overflowing, we managed to fit in some quiet times while constantly consulting to keep everyone in sync. It was so wonderful to have the family together again after a year and a half and savour each other in the good old summertime. The month passed far too quickly and though words can not express the joys and sorrows, I will attempt to summarize some of the happenings.

Oh Nanci! What a wonderful time you have had. And what a great job on the blog entries. I loved the articles: words, pictures, format, stories. I am only sorry I was not able to get there to share in the memories. Especially the Owen Sound trip. How happy you must be that Miranda and Ralph may return to Canada. How proud you must be of Amber's skill. And how blessed you must be to be a grandmother. May this year be one of great joy. On this week of the anniversary of your mother's death, I am thinking of you and wishing you well. My friend.
