(Last year during our Family Music Night/ Advent Service, the Youth Group played a particularly exciting number with drums and keyboards, violin... pretty much a full band, and at the end Little Luke could be heard to exclaim over the clapping, "That was fun!" I think of that phrase every once in awhile, and I always think of Little Luke's enthusiastic approval of the Youth Group Band. There was never better, more honest praise than from that 2 year old!)
After the HARD morning service and the delicious turkey dinner, we came home feeling tired, drained, emotional, sad, happy.
But we had a really nice evening together.
With wood donated from a good friend we built a fire in the fire pit and had roasted hot dogs and marshmallows for supper.
Then we went up to Prime Minister's Park for the Grand Council's Fireworks display- and even the cynical West Coast Daughter was impressed!
It was a beautiful way to end the day.
Today is more turkey gobbling, and more goodbyes.
