Keji Youth Canoe Trip

Over the Labor Day Weekend, Joel and James joined with some other youth and men from church for a three night canoe trip through the back country of Keji National Park. The two videos below were put together by Wayne Smith, from photos and footage taken along the trip by Brian Crooks.
First up, the movie trailer...

Summer. There it was, Gone !

Wow. I can't believe it's September 11th. The last half of summer has vanished and I can't come up with a reasonable explanation as to why or where. It's true that time and tide waits for no man, and you have to really seize the day as it were. Our life seems to be entering a new phase. Our boys are 17 and 18, and forging a life of their own. That, coupled with both of us working makes for a busy household. We're like the proverbial ships passing in the night. Thankfully, we still seem to sit down and eat meals together quite a bit, mostly thanks to Debbie's perseverance. Lots of activity though; Debbie went to Nfld for a week. Joel was away for much of the summer working. James lucked out and got invited to go to Nicaragua for a couple of weeks. It's good to have friends. We managed a few nights camping, and the boys took in a week of youth camp, along with a 3 night canoe trip.
Here's hoping for a less hectic autumn...right  :)
