{Cared} For

Well, we've been in Ol Canada for 2 and a half months now (feels like a lifetime, really,) and we have 2 months left! We were told by some of our overseas supervisors to learn to look forward to little tastes of home whenever possible. And look forward we have!

My parents sent us a care package about 3 weeks ago, with homemade cookies, Ian's favorite jelly (a honey pecan spread!) a book, and a few forgotten items (my beloved pillow case!)

Then, in perfect timing, I found a delivery notification for a package.

I rushed to the post office, picked it up, and walked home in the rain with this prized possession.....

A care package from my sister and her husband! Woohoo!

Ian was just as excited about this little adventure....even if he doesn't know it! lol.
Heather, my sister, got me a cute Old Navy Top with a beautiful summery scarf....
They got us a plethora of magazines and candy. ( By the way, I have an embarrassing love for People Magazine. It all started when a family I babysat for always had it....)

Ian was super cheesed over his National Review magazine. He loves that thing.

And Ian got two Old Navy polos...the yellow one will replace the yellow polo I shrunk in March.

These may not be hard to find items now, in Canada, but in two months, when we move to the United Arab Emirates, they will be hot and hard to find commodities! Thanks sis!

I also love getting packages from home! We live a 3 day drive or 4 hour flight from our families and packages from home always make me so happy!!
