Flowers! Flowers!


Floral Adventure

Last Wednesday, we visited the Butchart Gardens in Victoria. It was a real pleasure in the midst of all these beautiful flowers of different colors and sizes, with pleasant fragrances. Respect to the people who maintain and take care of these wonders and praise to God who is the Creator!

Whether you are a flower lover or not, a photographer or not, you can not resist the urge to capture this magnificent view and appreciate the expressing decor, absolutely breathtaking !!

School Is OVER!!!!


It’s official, since yesterday: in Edmonton, the school is over, it is holidays youpie! Our kids had a blessed school year.

The system here suits them so much. After our return from Burkina Faso in 2010, Daniel and Michael had continued their studies in Dutch in Belgium. Despite these two-year break with English, they impressed us with their good results. Each received a big congratulation from their schools for their efforts. We are proud of them!

The big surprise is our two miracles: Nema and Dara. They started grade 3 in September 2013 with the kindergarten level (they could neither speak, read nor write in English) to reach their current level in all subjects assigned in English. Congratulations girls!

Now, time for well deserved rest! Happy Holidays to ALL!!

Moving… again!!!


A year ago, in this same period, we were packing for our move to Canada, Edmonton. I vividly remember all the stress, insomnia and tiredness during two months!

After one year, we are again in the process of moving, this time to British Columbia, Vancouver Island.  We have never been so relaxed, enjoying the beautiful summer in Edmonton! The reason: our stuff will be packed and unpacked by movers. So, we really feel blessed and we are enormously grateful to God.

 

A few days ago, we found our home in Vancouver Island. What a relief! Once again, God was faithful. The house is in Shawnigan Lake, a dream location with its lakes, ocean and mountains, the view is breathtaking!

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!  😉
