12 weeks over!

I went to visit Nat last weekend and it was great! I miss him so much! We did some travelling since we had a rental car so we thought we would explore the prairies a bit.

We headed to Qu'Appelle Valley and realized after a slight detour to the very tiny tiny town of Qu'Appelle that Fort Qu'Appelle is actually in the Qu'Appelle Valley and not Qu'Appelle.

Ah well what are Sunday afternoon drives for anyway?

It was strange to see the valley it looked like part of the fields just sunk.

While there we stopped for a drink and we decided to test 2 rootbeers, I think the jury is still out. We also found a Seven Eleven which is strangely one of my favourite stores, maybe because it reminds me of trips to Florida but I LOVE their Slurpees!! So we had some of those too. We enjoyed yummy food, we even found a Pita Pit!!! Delicious!

Two days is just not long enough but we had fun and I am heading back out in a few weeks, thank you Jesus for Mom and her airmiles!!

So, lots has happened since I last posted. Nat has been away for 11 weeks now and I am going to visit him next weekend, I am waaay beyond excited!

Alright recap: I went to New Hampshire 3 times this summer, to the same area, same campground twice. The White Mountains are beautiful I highly recommend it!

We also went to PEI which was very exciting since I had never seen the bridge before, my memories of PEI were a bit jaded since the last time I was there I ended up throwing up on the boat and in the Champlain Mall food court, good times. I am happy to say that the bridge did not make me sea-sick.

My Bug is up and running thanks to my uncle and I am having a blast driving it around at home. My sister is a little frightened of the shall we say "authenticity" of the antique car but she has been doing well as a passenger although I almost lost her when the gear shift knob popped off in my hand between 2nd and 3rd gear, priceless!

Well, I have just finished midterm number one of my elementary education degree and I think I am going to go relax and read in the beautiful sunshine as Ruby wheezes beside me.

interesting video

This video really made me think about the world we live in, God really uses people in amazing ways!
