Besides all the work, we'd had to make several trips to Council Bluffs - to find what we needed, purchasing, ordering & hauling it home. Home Depot was our go-to place! Courtney's flair for decorating was put to use, between the three of us, we made decisions on appliances, cabinets, etc.

Courtney never stopped - cleaning, scrubbing, hauling & helping her Dad with the heavy stuff. We did take one afternoon to tour around the countryside & ended up at what's become our favorite place - Toby Jacks in Mineola. We were super sad when Thursday rolled around. The drive to Omaha was so short & easy - Courtney had to catch her flight back to Washington. :-( It brought home to me - that she & the kids weren't going to be close enough to visit anymore :-(

What a job That was! Again, just the two of us - Butch figured out amazing ways to help get the biggest & heaviest stuff loaded into the truck, then unloaded at the house. The weather throughout the move was with us & stayed nice the entire time.
When I think of all the changes that have occurred - in such a short amount of time - I have to believe that we've been blessed in so many ways. I'm so thankful that Mom knew we were happy & settling in. A great loss, a new beginning~
