Ah yes, little Elijah would definitely be the best reason for a well spent July in Yellowknife. The three days I've been able to soak in with Elijah will be treasured. But there have certainly been other highlights to my time in Yellowknife, which really has become a very secondary home to me- all the streets and establishments, and people, and oh yes, that LONG stretch of road, have all become quite familiar to me over the years. There are some fantastic people here- among the many, it has been encouraging to spend time with Yellowknife gems like Gene and Barb, the Paul and Roseanne Goertzen family and the Ashby clan. Such good friends, brothers and sisters. They are special people. So, if you're bored sometime and you really like driving, you should come to Yellowknife! It really is well worth the drive...especially if you've got something as sweet as Elijah waiting for you at the end of the road. :)
It is an ongoing treat to be with Autumn and Andrew, Mom and Dad, Heather, Tim and Tara- definitely not taken for granted at all after being away for so long.
Next stop...Calgary for the Kori and Lisa Jones wedding...to Canmore with my good friend Jeremy ...and then home to start my rookie year of high school educating!!! Wooohooo!
