Our next stop is in Ontario, Canada. We arrived in North Bay Ontario Canada August 9th to help set up Home Health Care for my parents. It was wonderful to spend time with my sister and brother's respective families. Pierre was able to get a transfer from Toronto to North Bay to work. so will be around to help with mom and dad, so that Liz can have a break. Jedi enjoyed his visit, as my parents live on a lake, and he swam every day with the ducks. He's a golden retriever and an amazing swimmer. We started our official school year in my parents home. We did manage to visit Science North in Sudbury Ontario. It was amazing. Parker especially enjoyed the robotics class that he signed himself up for. This was really worth seeing!
D. We drove through Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ontario during the 1200 mile trip, staying overnight near Terre Haute, Lansing and Guelph. Although we drove in rain most of the way up we have had no mechinal issues so far.
Today we are getting back on the road. We have enjoyed our first stop in Smithville, Missouri to visit the Hutcheson grandparents. Spent a week here while Bruce went back to work. The boys have enjoyed visiting with family; grandpa brought the boys tubing in his boat and visited the Jessie James Museum. We also spent a day at the Kansas City Zoo with uncle Harold. It's a great zoo, and something we have always enjoyed.
