Archive - Family

Christi tagged me for an archive blog. I'm going to divide it into 5 separate posts. So here's the first one...Family. I've not blogged much about my family for privacy's sake. But here's a photo of the 7 of us taken at my son's wedding 19 months ago.


My husband, Tim, and I have three wonderful children. Our eldest daughter is married to an engineering technologist. She teaches high school English. Our son is completing his computer engineering degree this year and his wife works for the provincial government. Our youngest is finishing her degree in Linguistics this spring. She says she doesn't want to marry anyone associated with engineering!

We raised our children in South America - they were all born there. We returned to Canada 6 years ago. We're very close and the dearest times I spend are with my family. God has blessed us so much with them and with our marriage. My husband is my closest friend, the person with whom I laugh, cry, pray and play. I love to cook dinner for my family, to sit around the table with them and to hear them talk. We play games together - well, the youngest and my husband don't enjoy that, so they do the dishes while the rest of us play games.

Last summer we bought a sailboat, along with two other couples. We enjoyed getting out on the water with the children. When we did overnight trips, some camped on land as sleeping 7 on the boat would have been very crowded. We enjoy the outdoors - hiking and exploring some of God's beautiful creation in this part of the world.

I'll carry on with friends next time.

Here are the instructions:

Link 1 must be about family.
Link 2 must be about friends.
Link 3 must be about yourself, who you are… what you’re all about.
Link 4 must be about something you love.
Link 5 can be anything you choose.

I think this is a great way to circulate some of the great older posts everyone has written, return to a few great places in our memories and also learn a little something about ourselves and each other that we may not know.

Post your five links and then tag five other people. At least TWO of the people you tag must be newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better….and don’t forget to read the archive posts and leave comments!

    What a wonderful picture of all of you, and what a sweet post. It took me 5 days to do my meme once I was tagged, so don't worry about taking your time.

    Charm & Grace
