Framing starts today!! I can't tell you how excited I am about this. Gary and Donna got a good part of their frame up yesterday, and I almost cried up there last night. There is something about seeing the walls up for the new homes that gives me such hope that we are going to all be ok. Dan and I have felt like we were in such a holding pattern the month of September before Kellen's birth and while we were waiting on the house. Kellen is here, and now the house is starting to go up. We are out of limbo, through the clouds, and every other cliched phrase you can think of. Watching those boards go up is the physical rise from the ash. And it symbolizes our emotional rise as well. We are survivors.

  1. VERY exciting! Once the frames are up you can really SEE your new home. Everything seems to happen very quickly after that too. I'm thrilled for you guys. You truly are survivors.

    Let's chat soon? Let me know when is best. ~Amy A.
