Quiet Time

The boys and I have reached the  middle of our Canada vacation.  My sister and her girls have gone back to BC.  My sister Carith came up for a surprise visit for a week and has now returned to Colorado.  It is very quiet and has been rainy and chilly - and I am ok with this - the boys are able to catch up on sleep and just lounge around watching movies and relax.  Ronan stated we are not swimming in the cold lake anymore - the girls are gone and we only swam because they were here.  They were very sad to see their cousins go home.  They cherish their time with them for sure.  They have managed to go out and fish a little bit since they have left.  We do have a couple of weeks left at the cottage, farm and in Sauble Beach - it may be quiet but it will be good family time with Papa and Oma.

this was the view of Otter Lake when I woke up this morning, very peaceful and calm

On another note while we have been up North Michael finished his exams for third semester.  He is very humble regarding his scores etc but we want to send out a big congratulations for doing well and working so hard.  We appreciate his hard work so much and are so very proud of him.  He is currently in Bolivia on his break volunteering in a medical clinic and the surrounding area.  We are excited to meet up with him back on the island in September and hear all about his adventure.  We miss him lots and are excited to begin fourth semester. We are also missing at least one Tropical Storm while we are off island but I am sure we will have at least one more when we return home.  There are many more Canada vacation posts to come, patience they will come in time.
