Family Update

Barb and the kids just returned from buying school supplies. That’s a definite sign that summer is over and school is about to begin.

We’ve had a great summer at our house. Tyler (our youngest) played baseball at the Provincial Championships and came home with an MVP award. His team placed 3rd. We had a lot of fun watching him play.

Zack, our middle child, didn’t play baseball, but had a lot of fun watching his brother play and cheering him on. He will play ‘fall ball’ and is looking forward to starting youth group at church this fall.

Brittany turned 15 this summer and spent most of the summer becoming even more independent. We’re very proud of her. She has some natural talent with her camera so we bought her a good quality camera for her birthday.

Barb is ready to start teaching piano and voice again this fall. She’s a great teacher and never lacks for students.

We (are hoping to run in the Royal Victoria Marathon in October. We just plan to do the 8k. Barb’s training is going much better than mine but I intend to carry on and give it my best.

Finally, Zoe (our yellow lab) is expecting a litter of puppies within a few weeks. We’ll post pictures on the blog and facebook sites when the puppies arrive.

Thanks for your prayers and interest in our lives and ministry. We appreciate you so much!

You guys are training for a marathon? That's awesome! I know so many people that have taken up running in the last year or so. In fact, Gary wants to start running now too and has convinced me to give it a try. (For the record, I loathe exercise of all types.)

I can't believe that Zoe's having puppies again. Was this a planned thing or did she have a secret rendezvous in the woods again?

Running! Running even 8k sounds fun. I would join you but I have discovered that when I run it makes the ice cubes pop out of my glass.
You go Barb!
