A diary of the projects, hurdles, rewards and family life at we recorded at Wise Acres, our former homestead in Horsefly, BC. (Careers and teenagers have forced us back into the city, at least for a little while.)

An Ode to Great Neighbours, Friends and Nana

We have moved! Thanks to the herculean efforts of my mom (aka Nana), the agility and spatial powers of Erich and Jesse (our wonderful hired hand...who is available for booking all summer ;)...our house is completely emptied and immaculate and all of our possessions are safely tucked away in boxes and in storage...phew!

This is the first time since Erich and I have become Erich and I and three kids, that we have packed and moved ourselves and wow...hope I never have to do that again. So now we have ten days of relative lollygagging before we have to do it all again...load up the truck from our storage space and head off to Horsefly. Thanks to the generosity of Barb (Jesse's mom) we have the most warm and comfortable temporary digs..just down the street while I finish off working at Jon (Barb's other son) and Michelle's place, taking care of E. and J.

Over the past few days, neighbours have graciously hosted our children for playdates, offered their help and truly gone above and beyond and Erich and I feel so very grateful and blessed by the kindness. We will miss everyone and hope you will do us the honour of returning the hospitality sometime in Horsefly!

Our last meal in the house...

Bye for now Shannon Lake!
