Wow, it's been a while since I posted! I've been doing a lot more browsing and reading other people's blogs. Also, in an attempt to become more "green" I have been doing a lot more research into safer products for us and for the earth. In the days leading up to camping I tried to find safer bug repellents and sunscreens. Whew, what a lot of information out there! And, of course, there's always another link to get me sidetracked...
So, here's what I've been reading lately, I've saved the interesting bits for you! Some useful information as well as some fun stuff. Cheers!

Julie and Wayne came over with Sean so Callum got to see is old buddy again! While I was uploading the photos I was thinking how great it is to have friends from all over! Not only that, but we have brothers and sisters everywhere -- no matter where God calls us. What a blessing it is, to be a part of the communion of saints!
