A surprise from far away

I’m usually not one for surprises, but this one was good! Last week, we returned from celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving and arrived home to a pile of mail and a yard full of leaves. Sam sent us a text asking us to Skype with her at 11:30 pm our time. I don’t know about you all … Continue reading

It’s a skill to know when it will beep, how much time is left or even what … Continue reading
