He's looking forward to resuming an active life and teaching STEP with Nick again, eager to reconnect with his passions and the community.

📅 Last Weekend Update 📅

We took a brief getaway last weekend, heading to Windsor to spend time with Jean-Luc's mom. What was intended as a quiet retreat turned into a heartwarming adventure filled with cherished memories. Our days were spent enjoying home-cooked meals, cozy movie nights featuring "Where the Crawdads Sing," "Come From Away," and "Hope Floats," and catching up with loved ones. On Sunday, we visited JL's dad, relishing every moment of family bonding. Before our journey back home, we couldn't resist a pit stop at Dairy Freeze for their renowned cold milkshakes—a refreshing indulgence to cap off our wonderful weekend.
