Travel back in Time with us to..

....The time our whole church went to the corn maze for the Harvest Festival. 

Here is Esther with a cousin,"The Cow", and a new friend!!
Our church was blessed to have a missionary couple  join us for the Harvest Festival.
Please pray for this missionary couple. They are English teachers in China{a Communist country}.
....The beginning of school. Here Esther is learning the difference between d and b:)
...The time Mom and Dad surprised us with a trip to Zipple Bay.
 Here I am pushing Victoria, in her stroller, down the trail that we walked on. The leaves were so beautiful!! How grateful we all are that God made different seasons.
Victoria also loved the surprise trip. You could literally experience fall with almost all your five sense.   
You could see the fall colors:
Hear the crunching of the leaves under your feet:
Feel the leaves on the ground: and
Smell the wonderful smell of trees.
You could only not taste least not at the beach. If you were at our house on Canadian Thanksgiving, you could have tasted fall:):):)

The waves were so pretty at Zipple Bay.

Mom and Dad...still in love with each other!!

No trip to the beach is complete without a game.

Siblings!! Best least most of the time:)

 The winning team!!!

Esther still active, even with a cast on( The cast came off last week.)

Psalm 127
1Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
2It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
3Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
4As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
5Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
Serve the Lord in all that you do today...You never know, today may be your last day on earth. Don't you want the Lord to say to you"Well done thou good and faithful servant"? I know that I do. You will stumble, but nothing you do the Lord won't forgive( not an excuse to sin). Keep pressing toward the mark and the high calling that Christ has for you!
Blessings on your day.
Signing off: The Mitton family.


  1. We were SO hoping we could make it up for the corn maze this fall....bummer. :( Oh well, maybe next year!! I didn't know about Esther's cast...what happened to her?

    1. WE would have loved to see you at the corn maze!!! As for Esther's arm...JoAnna and Esther were helping Mom pull some pumpkins with sleds. Then they decided to race...Esther somehow stepped in JoAnna's sled, fell...and fractured her arm. It was just a tiny fracture, and healed really nice.
