Within this slideshow you will see first of all the pictures from our last day at Anola. This was a huge move after being there for 27 years. Everything there was built through the love, swet and manual labor of my husband Alvin. Now we were closing this chapter in our lives to move in with our kids – in their loft – and to continue to build our combined house/retreat house. God gave us the strength we needed to pack up and leave. It was an emotional part of our journey – and when Alvin and I left for the last time at midnight on July 31st – there were tears. We are so thankful for our kids, our family and our dear dear friends, who rolled up their sleeves – helped pack – helped move – helped clean – helped keep us fed and watered!! We could not have done this without them all!!
August was a full month and the guys took advantage of each blue-sky day! The siding went up – the big door for the garage was picked up (so thankful my little brother Tim helped me!!) and there were times when they did stop for coffee breaks and “Everett” breaks as you will notice one picture of Poppa with Everett.
