It's been a busy summer and so I've not been blogging at all.
But, my grandkids talked me into it today.
I've been looking after my oldest grands for a few weeks now.
I went to our Church Camp for a wonderful and inspiring week and then I did some respite work for a foster family who needed to get away for a family vacation.
That week was an exhausting, fun, sad and happy time.
Today I'll show you what I did with my grands a few weeks back.
We visited the Mennonite Heritage Village in Steinbach, MB.
Here Jonathan is behind the teacher's desk in an English school that the Mennonite children attended in a nearby town many years ago.
Jonathan was having fun.
Here I am with a statue of a woman, commemorating the hard working Mennonite women of the past.

This house had a barn connected to it.
Because of the harsh winters that farmers endure in Manitoba, having the barn connected to the house meant that during blizzards the farmer did not get lost trying to get to or from his barn.
We were concerned though, that the barn might make the house smell a bit like the animals.
Not too appetizing, eh?
I had to get in on the fun, too!
This pig is pushing the handle that turns on the water with his nose and the water was dripping into his mouth.
I thought this was pretty funny.
As you can see we had a lot of fun.
An old Summerfelder Mennonite Church, Jonathan was trying out the pulpit for size.
He'd like to drive away in this beautiful old car.

We are having a beautiful summer here in Manitoba, it's been hot with some rain, but not too much.
What kind of summer are you having?
I will do my best to get around to visit you in the next week.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment!
