For Anna

We went through Wadena on our way to Winnipeg last week and stopped here for lunch:

It reminded me of visiting the Irishes, and of their cozy living room and of Andrew enjoying looking at Finn editions of Richard Scary books and Andrew's much beloved bed and desk that Anna gave us when she left Saskatchewan, and of how I'm going to pull out her folding rocking chair for quieting our new baby in a few months (and hope Aaron doesn't find a way to fold it up on himself, although I'm sure it will just be a matter of time). Hope all is well, Irishes!

Hi Jill,

Yes, all is well with the Irishes. We too are on holiday, enjoying my parents' cottage—their home, now, actually, since dad retired earlier this summer—while they are away in Europe. We're just kicking around and relaxing. We tried to go hiking yesterday, but the provincial park doesn't allow dogs! I've been doing crafts in preparation for St. Michael's Youth Conference, and today we have friends coming from Montreal...

Glad to know you're thinking of us, hopefully we'll see each other sometime. We do have intentions to come for a weekend(!) sometime, with a friend whose husband works for Air Canada and can get us almost free flights, but we'll see if we ever get that organized...

Enjoy the rest of yours!
