Idaho Part 1

This summer we went home to Idaho for two weeks. I LOVE going home and wish we lived closer so that I could do it more often, but at least when we do fly out we make it worth it and spend a lot of time there. First on my list of things to do was to see the house I grew up in - here it is. I had seen all the pictures and news reports, but ultimately it was still shocking. Our home really is gone. My parents and sister have nothing. It was overwhelming - but what is so amazing is how awesome everyone has handled it. The love that people have shown my family has played a large part in their positive attitudes. While I was home we had a shower for my mom and I think 80+ people came, it was fantastic. So now the house is completely gone and the rebuilding process starts. It will be a long few months but I have no doubt that my family will find all the good in each step of the way.

Look at all these people who knew about the blog before I did! I could have wasted at least an hour over the past few weeks on your blog! So much more fun than the typical blog "stalking" that I do.
