We got a home phone. Did we mention that? It’s red and old fashioned and has a cord and is just fun. It sits on a little side table in our living room, next to our white glider that I nursed and rocked Hudson in for months waaaaay back when we lived in Alaska. We've … Continue reading Unknown Igor
I love water bottle stickers. My coffee travel mug, my Nalgene, my guitar case... all are covered in stickers that I've collected from travels, companies, or that simply brought my joy. They've been gifted, found, purchased, or received as a "bonus," and I'm slowly (but proudly) getting our kids excited about stickers, too. Before school … Continue reading Water Bottle Stickers

The list included our spiritual gifts, ministry passions, talents, and other things we’d love to see included in our lives. One of those things was the opportunity to send our kids to a … Continue reading School Started!

Allen and I decided last week that we would visit Old Québec this week, and we randomly chose Wednesday morning as … Continue reading On Wednesday…
We've shared before about the spiritual climate here in Québec and how closed people are to Truth. About 99% of people in Québec are unsaved and don't believe the work Jesus did on the cross to forgive their sins. The other day, Allen found a Bible at a local thrift store so we decided to … Continue reading “Are you believers?”
Our silly, caring, generous girl is 5 years old! Clara makes us laugh everyday with her goofy comments, faces, and antics. Her name means light and she is certainly that! Clara is adventurous. She’s been asking for a skateboard for a while and we can’t wait to watch her learn how to ride one! She … Continue reading Happy Birthday, Clara!
Finally! Six weeks after our move in date, we’re ready to share an apartment tour. So without further ado, here are our kiddos with their fourth official home tour. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/1P9Xg392Wuw
We thought it would be fun to share a few cultural things we’ve noticed during our last 6 weeks or so living in Québec so that you can grow to love this place and the people as much as we do! All three of these cultural observations tie back to one cornerstone component of the … Continue reading Quebec Culture: Living Outdoors
Today is a St. Jean-Baptiste Day, a day to commemorate John the Baptist. And while we had great intentions to write a whole post explaining the holiday, we fell sick with something this week. It isn’t the Big C, according to our rapid home tests. But we also don’t think it’s allergies. So while the … Continue reading Joyeuse Fête de la Saint-Jean-Baptiste !
