Our Boise Trip

Buckled up and ready to go!
A little stretch of the legs...
We got to see Deborah before she left for school.

All tired out driving home.

Welcome Home!

Caleb, Elijah, and I packed up our car two weeks ago and started the 14 hour drive to Boise. I was so excited to be driving, while Caleb was wondering if it was too late to get a plane ticket. Elijah didn't know what was going on, he just wanted to be back in his crib sleeping. We had looked forward to this trip all summer. It was the first time Caleb and I would spend time at my parents house without a house full of people. It was just Dad, Mom, and Abigail. We were going to spend the first half of the week in Idaho and then drive to Oregon the second half and spend time with Caleb's grandparents on Blue River. There were high hopes of fishing, playing at the pool, and just spending time together.

Well, God had something else in mind. The night after we got there my sister got a terrible stomach flu that slowly spread through every member in my family. Everything we planned was canceled and we spent our time laying in bed, cleaning up vomit, and sipping on 7 up. Not quite what I had in mind! But somehow we still had a good time. I feel like I learned a lot this trip, so I thought I would share a couple of the things with you.
1. Housing prices in Boise are so cheap and Caleb and I can't wait until we're living there.
2. I miss open sky and fresh air more I realize.
3. Family you get along with even while throwing up is a huge blessing.
4. My family is extremely generous and Caleb and I are thankful.
5. I like going to family movies that have lots of kids in the theater.
6. I need to depend on the Lord as much in the little things as I do in the big.
7. God answers my prayers even though I do nothing to deserve it.
8. Elijah is more fun to be around than I ever imagined.
9. I miss being around my Grandma a lot!
10. Caleb and I are going to miss our California friends lots.
11. I like coming back home, even if home means dark grey clouds, soot flying everywhere, and being stuck inside because the air quality is so bad.
