Two weeks ago we made an unexpected trip home to Canada when we got word that Karl’s father was having some serious health issues. We decided to come home to Canada for our break earlier than we had planned in order to help out with care. Thus the change in scenery you will see on this blog in the next little while!
These are the beautiful mountains in Golden Ears Park just across the river from our home in Langley. It has been overcast and rainy for the past two weeks but today we woke up to sun and fresh snow on the mountains…beautiful!
The day we arrived back in Canada was Karl’s father’s 87th birthday, so even though he was weak we were able to visit for a couple of hours and share some birthday cake.
We are not sure what the next few weeks will hold, but we will enjoy the family time while we have the chance, and keep ourselves busy helping with medical appointments, spending time with our daughter who is soon having her 20th birthday, gathering resources and doing research for our work in Uganda, and continuing to plan teacher training courses. Arleen has already begun doing some substitute teaching at Pacific Academy as well, as this is the midst of the cold and flu season and substitutes are in short supply.
