Well, it came and went so fast, I feel like my head is still spinning.
There is a Arabic saying that states that it takes three days for the soul to catch up with the body.
I am on day two, and am feeling more settles here in our hamlet all the time. Here are pics of the day....
Mark and Lorraine and their amazing gift of their able bodied selves and the behemoth "Green Hornet", their 16' cube van!!!! They even packed their own lunches...I was overwhelmed with gratitude for these two.
Caravan arrival at 1101B...3 lil trailers, one van, a truck and flatbed and a Green Hornet..
Van testing out the radish to see if it survived the Journey alright!
Shelagh and Carrie sitting down for Pizza and beverages, after a hot day of work!
The Late shift: Sarah, Alex and their awesome kids come and to finish off the unpacking of the last trailer and, more importantly (for me, at that point) the UNPACKING of the entire kitchen and Pantry-my least favourite job!
The Marrriot Tribe help to unpack the kids room..wow-a totally helpful crew!
Not pictured here, because they all worked at the speed of light and I simply couldnt capture them on film: Sven, Beth, Jacquie, Suzy, Christina, Geri and Mikey Z .
In the backstage crew, watching our children for 5 days were Nana, Pops and Grandma Jo, who slaved away as grandparents, keeping our kids cheerful over days and days!!!! Thanks also to Paul, Christian and Kevin for the use of their trucks and trailers!
Many Many MANY Thanks to our incredible circle of friends and family, we are so very humbled by your generous gift of time, love, sweat and good humour.
We are still floatin' on all the Love given to us on that day.
It will sustain us on hard times that come.
