That was the challenge for "Salt" today. Jeremiah 29:11 was the verse behind the challenge. My lo is about how my purpose in life seemed to be different than God's purpose for my life. I only see the here and now in my life whereas God sees the big picture and knows what he is doing. My purpose has changed since he has become the leader of my life and I don't need to know what He is doing, I just need to follow and trust that He does know what He is doing. Check it out and try the challenge yourself!

We had a major success this summer - the kids finally learned how to ride 2-wheel bikes. Because of balance issues they were rather agitated whenever it came time to learn how to ride bikes.
They just refused to do it. But one day, they both picked up a
bike and did it on their own. They were so proud of themselves and naturally I was a proud mama too! They over came their fears and their difficulties and they just did it.
On days that weren't quite so nice and warm, we had to find things to do inside, so glow bowling was one of the fun things the kids loved to do. My sisters and spouses and all the kids got together and had alot of fun. Kiana was thrilled because she beat all 20 of us with her high score. I guess Wii Bowling does pay off!

Even though Winnipeg had rain for most of the summer, we were fortunate enough to have a couple of days of beautiful, hot weather so that we could enjoy the outdoors of Manitoba. We managed to spend one day at Birds Hill Park so the kids could go to the beach. They love being in the water and building sand
castles. But more than that, they loved spending time with their cousins. There is nothing better than splashing and chasing each other in and out of the water.

It's over!

My summer, I mean. Yep, I am finally back here after a looooong month away. But we are back from Winnipeg, my parents are leaving Edmonton as we speak and I am preparing for getting back to "real life." Its been a long summer, but a good one. Even though the weather in Winnipeg was crap for most of the summer we had fun with my nieces and nephew and did lots of family stuff. I will be posting photos later today.

I am kinda looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. I am probably going back to work this week too.

Anyway, I will be posting photos in a bit, going to check out everybody else's blogs out now. It is soooooo good to be home. Can't wait to catch up with you all!
