Mid-July, Erika and Tyler carefully loaded up their car and drove to their new home in Boise, Idaho. They were here in Maryland with us to years as Tyler went to school here. We are happy that they also have family out there. Erika is a counselor for military families, and is able to work from home--so it's great that she will continue to have her job out there while Tyler finishes school in Boise.
I graduated from high school in Emmett Idaho, about an hour from Boise, and think it's a great place to live. My parents were also both born in Boise, so Erika has family roots and extended family there, too. So far, I think Erika and Tyler are both really enjoying the mix of urban and rural life there.
