"[God] has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end" (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

Tomorrow school starts.

As I look back at the summer, so many fond memories come to mind and I am overwhelmed with gratitude to the Lord who "has made everything beautiful..."

and so my list of thanks continues...


-three WONDERFUL children with whom I have had such fun times this summer!

-rides/slides -fun family times

-CNE -fun times and a place close to my heart

-special treats for our camp out

-traditions -camping in the backyard on Labour Day weekend

-roasting hot dogs in the backyard

-wannabe rockstar brother

-fun party at his house

-celebration of birthdays

-open fields allowing lots of room for running and playing soccer

-Dads being good sports playing soccer against the children (a competitive match to say the least)

-the birthday girls

-girls with great taste! (not planned)

-our new Sunday night game (even if it gets a bit wild)!

-helpers emptying the pool

-helpers taking down the tent

-nice visit with our aging aunt
