There’s an old saying “absence makes the heart grow fonder” and I think that’s absolutely true. We went to Mexico as a family for a week right up until Christmas day. It was so great to get away to relax, play lots of beach volleyball, eat lots, snorkel in the ocean and cave dive as a family.
I have a funny story to tell. My youngest son commented on our Instagram post after my personal monthly column was posted last month. What I found humorous and intelligent all at the same time was that he made the comment in third person and said “what about Sam, you haven’t mentioned anything about him but gave an update for everybody else in the family”.
In this photo with Maddy and I is the H.M.C.S Haida, a Tribal-class destroyer that served in the Royal Canadian Navy from 1943 to 1963. What you probably don’t know about me is that I was the lead character in a documentary made about the ship when I was 14 years old.
After 17 years of pastoral ministry in the church, Bryan Ferguson (my big brother) joined the family business. His first assignment with BWL 4 years ago was to chauffeur me, his little brother, to Chicago.
This month I would like to highlight our family trip to Collingwood’s Blue Mountain. I took on the challenge/adventure of trying to teach our 3 kids to snowboard. Watching the Olympic snowboarders makes it look so easy….but it is NOT that easy to teach nor to keep track of 3 young, reckless snowboarders.
