Ben told the driver to hit the brakes once or twice to help settle things and straighten out the bulkhead!
When the truck arrived last Friday, I thought we would have no trouble getting it loaded since we had it for five days. But still, last night we were loading it until 3:30AM and then rolled out of bed at 6:30 this morning to finish the job before the driver arrived at 10:30. Breakfast was fast food, much to Pieter's delight. We had our final walk around the yard and wished that it had been a warm week so that we could have seen the tulips really come into their full bloom. Nothing like waking up to another snow on the day you say goodbye to South Dakota and set off for Puerto Rico via a summer in Michigan. Goodbye, Black Hills! We had a lovely four years to explore your beauty and will miss our friends and church very much.
