Good things come to and end ....

... so that better things can get started! Rachel, Jason and I will return to Texas tomorrow with a re-newed vision for the family! This summer in Nova Scotia with my family has energized me in a way that I was not sure was possible anymore! Rachel is excited to go back to school, Jason is happy to be going back to pursue some career choices and I am ready to go back to life in Texas. I have a better sense of who I am and have a new outlook on where we live and what we are doing!

For now I can't believe that I have spent 7 weeks in beautiful Nova Scotia with my very supportive family - especially my sister. Here is a picture with Rachel and her cousins after finishing a treasure hunt!
A shout out to her and my mom - this weekend they walked in the "Weekend to End Breast Cancer". They walked 60 km (about 40 miles) over saturday and sunday. As Sarah put it ... they could not complain about their sore feet when one of their team members is currently undergoing chemo for breast cancer. Andrea was an inspiration to the team - and anyone that saw her pink bandana covering her bald head and her HERO t-shirt. The walk raised 1.25 million dollars for a much needed breast cancer facility here in Halifax. Way to go to all the women who walked - but I am glad to stick with my unending support for the JDRF walk to cure diabetes - and it is only 3 miles - heehee.
