Had a little fun processing this in black and white.
I’m three weeks away from leaving the country. Three weeks less a day, actually. It seems a little surreal, actually, that I will no longer drive home past this.
There were two inspirations for this: one, this is what home looks like. I love where I live and I don’t want to forget it. Two, we said good-bye to my wife’s family this last weekend and my brother-in-law paid me a great compliment – he said, “I miss your photos.” That’s it, but I love approval, so…thanks Ryan. I appreciate the nice words.
Oh, and for those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about when I write “leaving the country”, I’m moving to Jakarta, Indonesia for two years. My whole family is. Cool, but it’s getting really close now.
I’m sick. Boohoo. Does someone have a remedy for a head that feels as though it’s stuffed with cotton?
Here’s a farm. Meh.
I don’t normally post multiple photos in one post, but I felt this was necessary. After dinner, the family went out for a walk in our local, center-of-the-city park and Ben and Hannah excitedly played on a new playground installation. While there, we found a local parkour group working out on the playground. This guy was amazing; he decided to back-flip off the swing set. I know that responsible parents everywhere will probably think, “Agh! What a horrible example to set for the children.” All I could think was, “How can I get Ben signed up for this?” It was amazing. Thanks to Brian Galenzoski and the guys from Fraser Valley Parkour.
