"This summer we moved to the city.
I missed feeding the chickens
and hunting for Indian arrowheads
and fishing in the creek.
But I liked the city."
Why I liked it: Illness, whether physical or mental, can take it's toll on a family, especially if they are adjusting to life in a new place. I enjoyed how Ms. Repp addressed a touchy subject, showing how a family's support and a neighbor's kindness can help lift the human spirit in times of trouble.
