A New Home for Tucker

Four years ago tomorrow we brought home the sweetest little dog. His family had too many pets and virtually no time to care for them all. We were so happy to give him a home where he would have the love and attention he needed. Tucker has become a part of our family and we all love him so much.IMG_2188

The last year has brought many changes. We are preparing to leave the country as missionaries. We have left our home, most of our belongings, and are preparing to leave all of our friends and family. The question on our minds all these months has been whether we should bring our beloved family dog with us or find him a new home. IMG_2010

As we think over the life we will likely have in Montreal, we realize we will likely not be home much. Poor Tucker would spend most of his time locked up in his crate. He would be left behind with someone else for the first three months while we are in language school. Then there is all that he would go through each time we cross the border. That wouldn't be so bad for this one trip, but we do intend to return long-term if God leads us to it. As hard as it is we have made the decision to find him a new home.IMG_2161

We love him so much. We want him to have the best life possible even if that means not having it with us. So now we begin on the hard task of finding a wonderful new home for him, with sadness but knowing it is the right decision.IMG_2177

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
