This picture was taken
quite some time ago but is one I still have stored in the computer
here at home. James celebrated his first birthday on April 16,
2002. Megan, Taylor and James live in the Ballard section of Seattle,
about an hour and a half drive from where I live in White Rock,
B.C. (provided there isn't a huge line at the border).
We also have two granddaughters in Atlanta, Georgia. Mollie and I just got back from there recently. Being a grandparent is great fun, however I wish we lived closer to the children. I'm so envious of the members of my congregation who live close by their families.
Hope you're enjoying the summer. My daughter, Meredith, in Atlanta has an airconditioned home and car and is close to a swimming pool so we did not do badly coping with the heat (90 degrees most days and not much cooler at night). The weather today here in BC is so much more to my liking: 77 degrees, sunny with a gentle breeze.
Again thank you for your excellent work and for trying again and again to get a response from some of us slower types. Have a wonderful reunion!
Blessings and peace.
