Why so little blogging these days?

Because I’m on a week-long trip through the B.C. interior with the wife and kids, trying out our brand new mini-van. And let the record show that the first movie we popped into our mini-van’s DVD player, to keep the kids distracted last Saturday, was Godspell (1973). I think parts of it were a bit scary for them, though. They liked Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood better.

    Nope, Nimpo Lake is as far north as we get. We are now south of Calgary, and should be meeting our friends in Medicine Hat in a couple days. And then it’s back to Vancouver by Sunday, hopefully. (Oops, I forgot to mention we were passing through Alberta, too, didn’t I?)

    DVD player? You guys are lightweights! :)

    We just bought a minivan — no DVD, of course — and are taking a two-day trip to New England in a month, with our 4-year-old, 2-year-old, and 9-month-old. Should be fun.
