I miss Canby

We've been in Silverton for about two months now and while I really like this town, I'm very homesick.

I miss having my mom so close. I miss having my grandma, my dad, and three of my sister-in-laws so close. I miss Fred Meyer. I miss Burgerville. I miss the Wild Hare. I miss flat land. I miss the Logging Road walking path. I miss library story time. Gotta find out when/if Silverton has one, too. I miss the McD's indoor play place. It's a lifesaver when it's rainy/cold/just plain yucky out and Mickey needs some energy released!

Andrew misses Canby, too. He's said that we can now look more closely at houses that need remodeling. And, we've even thought about building a house if we can find the right property. These are things that he was vehemently against before. The man wants a yard of his own!

Even Mickey misses Canby. He's always saying that he wants to go see Bah-Bong (my mom) or Papa Maow (my dad) or Car-ee (Karly) or the Uncle John. He also wants to see the Gran (my granny), Claire and Auntie Kathy. The kid likes family as much as I do! :D

So, come on 30 year home. Show up already!

Erika, I have been thinking about you a lot! I would love to get together with you and scrap, and I am sure the other girls would too! I hope everything is going well with you and the kids and Andrew. I miss you friend!
