Perhaps the event in Pocatello that will have the most lasting impact on our family is the introduction of Ginger.
During our last week at Cowboy RV, a sweet little orange kitten emerged from a shrub and came to reside outside our camper door. I couldn’t resist giving it a bit to eat and a soft spot to sleep, and before we realized it she had worked her way into hearts. Brad was not thrilled with this evolution, even though it was clear to him from the moment she showed up. We had a few days that were tense and difficult as the girls and I slowly and painfully convinced him that even though adopting Ginger was a horrible idea, he loves us so much that we could do it anyway.
Brad and I had a difficult conversation later that night. He told the girls about it the next day, the day before we were set to leave Pocatello.
