Trains, Planes and Automobiles

Hey all, this is just a quick update. We're back home in Cape Dorset after our amazing summer. We have had numerous phone calls and emails from concerned family and friends because a First Air plane crashed the same day we were flying home from Ottawa to here. We heard about the crash after we had arrived home and the news hit a bit too close to home about how scary flying can be. Here is a link to the  CBC News article. We are very sorry for all those who have been affected by this tragedy.

The summer was amazing and when I have some more time in the next week or so and can get some pictures up to share I will go into more detail (for those that care!) about where we were and what we did. Needless to say it was so wonderful to re-connect with our culture, friends and family. I can't speak for the rest of my family but I must admit that I am filled with mixed emotions about being home, as I am sure you can understand. It's foggy, windy, rainy and muddy here now, but hey, it could be worse!

Hope you are having a great summer wherever you are and take care.



  1. Glad to hear you are all safe! Keep up the blogging!

  2. Glad you guys made it home safe and sound (and on time!) Enjoy the beginning of the school year and all the excitement it brings!

    We are very thankful that we got to spend the summer with you guys.

    Talk soon.
