Day 9 Home in Alaska

We made it.

Michael picked us up curbside at 8:37 a.m.

We were home in the valley by 10:00 a.m. on the 23rd.....21 hours (but take away the time zones) maybe 19 hours? Michael was right, It IS GREEN! I am happy.

Michael had an LSVT Therapy appointment. He told me to skip it and take a nap. I did. Stacia slept all day. Before sleeping we visited the chickens. There is much more to be seen on video. I'll get to that next.

Novia is my special chick  - she isn't very frightened of me
 Michael installed a chicken door. The boys and I made a temporary run for them this afternoon. Golda gamely tries the new ramp...and we discover the boards are slippery. Michael added bits of roofing tiles to the ramps. At this point only 2 or 3 will come out. The other 16 huddle inside in a mass and complain about what they are sure must be killing the ones outside. 
 This little one was outside before - she seemed to remember and came on out.

Home - one word to say a lot. This is truly feeling like home, the place we belong. As Michael and I begin work, we keep reminding each other, "We can STAY here. This is ours. We don't have to leave in 2 years." It's a fantastic feeling.
