The Saga of Lexie – Resolution!

We found our sweet Lexie a new home! She is now keeper of cows and chickens at my Uncle’s farm in Enumclaw, WA. When we decided it was time to find her a new home, we asked several close friends and some family. Most said they couldn’t fit her in with their current situation. I called my Uncle Charlie and asked him, very directly, “Do you want our dog?” The conversation was very simple and I described Lexie and her energetic yet loving nature and he sounded pretty interested. I wasn’t sure how it would end up but had my doubts as the distance and inconvenience was a very real obstacle.

Soon my Uncle’s interest was revealed to be some real excitement as he continued to call me back to suggest ways to get her up there. We discussed flying her up there, meeting halfway, Charlie’s friend who drives a truck and other options. It turns out that my Aunt, who lives here, in Utah, not Charlie’s wife, was very near to passing away from a horrible fight with cancer. I heard the news in the middle of the week that she had indeed passed away. On Friday, I get a call from my Uncle that they were in Idaho and would soon be in Utah for the funeral that weekend.

Things are going to start moving quickly now!

Summer’s here and just when you’d think things would mellow out, no sir! Here’s what we’ve got coming…

  • Deb’s and Jake’s wedding in Manti
  • We get Lexie, our puppy
  • Camping @ Bear Lake
  • maybe camping elsewhere

OK, so that doesn’t look like a ton, but read between the lines! Most of Rachel’s family are coming for the wedding. We’re hosting many, if not all, activities either at our house or at the chapel up the street. Lots of cleaning and buying food and such to be ready. Lexie is going to be a huge adjustment in lifestyle! We will need to puppy-proof the house, buy food and supplies and a kennel. We’ve built the gate and put a net up over the garden. Camping is lots of fun, once you’re out there doing it. It takes some good prep and work to get ready.

We should have a lot of fun this summer and I’m excited we can share it with a new member of the family, Lexie.
