Leaving SPI

Its Saturday morning in Harrisonburg Virginia, and I'm ready, very ready, to return to Grand Rapids. Being away from Renita and the kids at such a critical time of transistion and for such a long time has been a strain on us all. The experience here has been unforgettable, and I take away information, tools, and especially memories that will be a part of me for the rest of my life. But now my thoughts are with my family and the important work we need to do in the remaining month we have before we leave.

While I've been gone, Renita has been doing the incredidble amount of work it takes to sell a home and almost all household goods, talking with the CRWRC people about shots, visas, insurance, contracts, and at the same time assisting Restorers as it completes the transition to its new director. She is something else. And I miss her. So by this time, four days hence, I will be on the road to be reunited for our last month in Michigan, USA.
