This morning in church there was a dancing group of ladies age 40-80. Not something you see every day.
This afternoon, I went to Children's Festival, held in a park about 20 minutes' drive away. It was an extremely refreshing way to pass the scorching July day. They have set up vendors, displays, and most importantly, a number of water games and huge stations like a king-sized water park. They had huge mounted water guns, an area with a rubber mat over the water where you had to try to remain standing, and a set of spinning sprinklers that seemed to be stimulating typhoon rains (funny how we love it in one place, and hate it in another). My favorite was this dance floor with jets of water shootingto the rhythm of the music up from small holes spaced a few inches apart all over the platform. It was like a big, wet mosh pit (though not nearly as violent), and I found myself thinking, they should do this at Youthquake! Apart from the fact that it would break all Briercrest dress codes, and is probably not suitable for February in Saskatchewan (think - frozen jets of water), it's a really cool idea! I'll probably go back again sometime, and maybe I'll bring my camera, though I'll have to be careful not to get it wet.
And finally, here are a couple pictures of my place rearranged and spruced up for guests:
