May 1, 2008 - We are Home - BUT- Not Home.

I'm so sorry PEI! We obviously brought this weather along with us. All indications were that PEI was in the beginnings of spring. All the sights along the highway home were telling us that 'All is well'. But this is what we do to our friends and loved ones who we have missed so much. Bring them WINTER. God has said to Rita, Tom ........and HeyU, "This is what it's like. I gave you the most wonderful winter that you've ever had, given you the most wonderful new friends from all over. This IS what it's like , and don't you forget it!" Yes, my...

Not much to say right now but thought I'd add pictures.

If the wind is too strong, they'll decide whether or not you can cross. Fortunately, today is a pleasant day and we're not expecting any problems.

They grow 1/3 of Canada's potato consumption here. Gregg thinks his brother Gary should plant an ocean behind his crops on the farm in Iowa - makes a beautiful backdrop! The bridge connecting...

Aug 15, 2007 - PEI

Kyla writing... Growing up as a base brat and living in 9 different homes before setting off for university, doesn't really offer much of an opportunity for a place you can call "home". Thankfully I have a lifetime of returning to my birthplace Island - as a child 2-3 times a year, as an adult, likely once every two years. PEI is a wonderful place to be connected to and my Mother's entire family for generations was born and raised there. I have a wonderful Island family and was fortunate to visit with my Nana, Grammy Doris, Aunt Sandy,...
