Snowy Travels

Josh turned 26 this week. How does this happen? How do the years fly by so fast? Emily posted this picture of the 2 of them at a wedding last June at Catons Island. This summer Josh hopes to be at Family Camp at Beulah. I can't wait!!!

Last weekend Robin and I traveled to Fort Fairfield, Maine to present at the church there. I used the time in the car to get some writing done and some planning. We were able to have lunch with Kaylin on our way and then spent Saturday night with Dean & Carol Stephenson and really enjoyed our time together.

Sunday morning it was snowing a little, because that's what it does around here on Sunday. It snows. But let's just say New Brunswick has the coolest snowplows. We couldn't tell if the back end of the truck was being swept around by the wind. 

As we passed it we could see that it was angled to plow one complete lane of traffic and the shoulder all at the same time. 

Robin's mom grew up in Fort Fairfield and so before we headed home, we tried to find the home she grew up in. Robin is positive this is the house. 

We had a great time at the church there. It's a small congregation but they were friendly and hosted a soup social afterwards so we were able to talk with some of the people more. 

Our drive home was a bit of an adventure. Once we passed Moncton, the blowing snow became an issue. We would drive along and it would be perfectly clear, and then we would have to slow down to almost nothing as it became white out conditions. We could hear on the news that there were a couple of multi vehicle crashes that afternoon. And when we were at Stewiacke, a vehicle spun around and went off the road right in front of us. 

But we made it home and then wouldn't you know it, school was cancelled on Monday. The kids were staying with friends for the weekend so that worked out well for all of us. We are so thankful for their support and help. And so thankful for churches to invite us to come and share with them.
