Our monthly support has begun to slowly climb towards 90% now. That's a wonderful thing; it would be so nice to just focus on all the little things that need to get done and our shipment of belongings. We are still hoping to depart sometime in September. Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day next weekend!

Actually, I'm just about 8 months old now, but mommy and daddy took all these pictures a few weeks ago. We went for a really long walk because it was so nice outside. They took me to a huge park where I got to swing and play in the grass! They showed me dandelions, and a big place where water goes called a river. It was so much fun! I can't tell you how happy I am that it's nice outside now; there's so much to do and see!

Aside from our regularly scheduled program, that's what we've been doing lately. We took a day trip to Québec, North America's oldest city. It's got more of a European feel with narrow cobblestone streets lined with shops, cafe's, and bistros. The one on the left is pretty wide, they get much more narrow than that. The building on the right is the "Chateau Frontenac," or Frontenac Castle, named after the French governor of the then "New France." In 1690, He famously mouthed these words, "I have no reply to make to your general but from the mouth of my cannons and muskets," when British forces sailed up the St. Lawrence River and demanded he surrender.
I just thought this sign was a little funny. Tourist Information, the Citadelle, Parliament Building, Frontenace Castle, and...Youville? Hmmm, wonder what that is?
