From LiG to Alaska

LIFE is Good went by in a blur!!! The kids are ready to do it again! They made friends with lots of interesting and awesome people and Cliff was so social he got asked to help assist with the talent show. It was cool to see so many happy, enthusiastic and beautiful people in one place. We met many inspirational people like the Yoblonski-Bieglers. Camden adopted a really nice family (Chris and Kelly Wilson--Cooper and Frankie) from Vancouver Island, BC. We almost went to visit them on our way to Alaska, but decided we better not do that yet. We will for sure visit them in the future.

We left the conference on Monday morning and drove thru British Columbia, the Yukon, and made it to Alaska on Thursday around 1pm. It was an amazing ride. Cliff and I were in awe of all the wild life, the mountains, rivers, and lakes. We saw many black bears, trains, a brown bear, moose, wild horses (some with cow bells???) elk, bison, foxes, coyotes, rabbits, black birds, wood ducks, wood carvings, log cabins, and met lots of nice folks on our 3 and half day trek here to Alaska! The roads were really curvy and full of dips in places. They were a lot better than I expected though!

Now we are at the Snavley's house and all is going fine. Heidi had a yoga class to teach last night. She invited me and of course I went. She teaches at a lovely studio in Wasilla, not far from her house. It was a wonderful class! I felt so relaxed and centered afterward. Her daughter, Calista Is really good with the boys. She is 11 and very adorable. Shadow is happy here and other than peeing in Calista's room she has been a good girl.

We are really grateful to know so many wonderful and kind people who support our dreams and inspire us to be better.  Thanks to all of you who don't think we are crazy and to everyone who has supported us a long the way!!! We love you all very dearly. We also love all the wildlife that smiled at us along the Alaskan Highway and stayed off the road for us. What a joy to see them happily prancing about and living in freedom. We see eye to eye with those creatures.
