A month into 2013 and the changes have been many.
We wrapped up 2012 with a rejuvenating trip to visit family in the South and
soon after landed in Pokey to start packing for a move to Boise, Idaho.
After loading our UHAUL in -4 degree weather, we drove west and
unloaded in +14 degree weather (thank you Boise for the +). We finished our last week of work in Pocatello and I am so thankful for the opportunity I had to work with teenagers and their families.
I was challenged in an environment that allowed me to develop as a counselor without
stifling my personality and I am grateful for MK Place. When I reflect on the 2 years we
spent in "the Pokey barn", I am also overcome with gratitude for the strength, joy, and peace God provided me with that made the last 2.5 years so memorable.
I am sure in the future we will look back and wish for the simplicity
Pocatello offered us during the first years of marriage.
A few of our last snapshots of Pokey:
Goodbye and thank you Pocatello for a pleasant two years.
We will miss the ease of life you offered and the proximity to Yellowstone, the Henry's Fork,
the Tetons, and the reservation.
(My sister will especially miss having an excuse to visit you as she once described you as,
"a place that where a sad indie film might have been shot").
Hello Boise, we are ready for you and excited to see what you have to offer
(starting with exploring what Whole Foods and Anthropologie have to offer).
