The Merkles made it! Hoorah! We are very thankful, as you can imagine.
They arrived in Seattle last night and spent the night there. Then today they hauled their trailer full of luggage across the Cascade Mountains to home again.
Bekah has some fun stories about the trip, but they are all good. No catastrophes. In fact, the whole thing was a spectacular success.Â But I will let her tell you the splendid details. Thanks for your prayers for them!
We had all eight cousins lined up on the deck to wave to them as they drove up the driveway. (Actually, a little no-name cousin, currently referred to as Cinco, was also present, which brings the total cousin count on the deck to nine, though this little one was no doubt unaware of the significance of the event. Yep. Nate and Heather are expecting! Yay and Hooray!)
