Alaska is a wonder-filled place. At one time it could be cold, harsh, and unforgiving. At other times it is sunny and warm. Fortunately we where present during the sunny weather, and little rain. Seeing Emily and Boone was great, along with Austin and Clint. The sight of the house and grounds was amazing. The Fourth of July party was great and the food was amazing! I think being on this trip has changed me. I learned how to budget my money from my dad, and it worked here as well. This trip would not have been possible without my family, friends, and other supports. I thank Ishtar for setting this all up and all the junior leaders for committee work.
