Ontario, Canada

"Last but not least," as they say, we arrive at our final destination:
our aunt and uncle's home.

No visit with our Canadian relatives would be complete without
Scrabble. My uncle (on the right) is the standing champion; once, Dad
beat him by one point. Dad doesn't give up easily, however!

He needs all the help he can get.

Bedtime for a bunch of girls who don't actually plan to sleep
for several more hours.

Bedtime blessings. - Photographing prayer does not
encourage reverence I discovered. :-)

You can't really tell from the picture, but that was a candle-light
breakfast. Apparently in Canada it is not unusual to have the
electricity turned off for several hours for maintenance work once
in a while. It was quite adventurous preparing 18 people for church
without the luxuries of running water, heat, and light!

Two nearly identical Sunday shoes + two similar stocking feet =
some confusion in getting two boys appropriately shod for church.

We are in Canada. It is cold in Canada. Windshields freeze
as a matter of course in Canada.

A post-Sunday-dinner discussion in which my scientific cousin
expounds on the "theoretical world" while Conrad stubbornly sticks to
a "real world" viewpoint. Really, that is what they were discussing.
