When the meadow grass is turning brown/
Summertime is falling down and winter's closing in.
We've learned that we can survive on a whole lot less sleep than we thought possible.
We learned that one good friend can get you through.
We've learned that a house becomes a home very quickly when you bring a baby home from the hospital.
We've learned that life went on, without us (gasp!), and that the Ottawa we're returning to isn't the one we left.*
But we've also learned that it's where we want to be.
So cheers to all who participated and shared in our Grand Adventure, making it so Grand. We look forward to this next one.
*For example, Vanier is now an "up-and-coming" neighbourhood. (see also, Dowisetrepla)
