I think you've captured the essence of this challenge quite well with this story. Family isn't location as much as it's people. Isn't God good...He showed you how to make lemonade (or in your case, apple juice) out of a difficult situation. Thanks for sharing.

I enjoyed the way the story kept moving forward, jumping suddenly from speaker to speaker, from scene to scene. Conveyed very well the sense of loss and adventure. Well done.
This was a well written story. You made the move from one location to another flow very smoothly for the reader. I was happy that the family found a new farm in Washington.

Thank you for sharing. Keep on writing.

Loved this story and especially the last paragraph which brought a lump to my throat. Yes, Home IS where the heart is. Nicely done! Enjoyed the trip!(*.*)
