Gone Like the Wind.

      It's crazy. I had one week when we got the news of when and where we were moving. The next week we went house hunting. Then camping with the in-laws for a week. We left the kids with grandma and grandpa and made the trek back south. Packed and cleaned for 4 days straight. Movers came and loaded everything into the truck yesterday morning. We hit the road after lunch. Stayed the night at my folks and made it back to the in-laws tonight. We'll be here for the weekend. Anthony will motel it Monday and Tuesday until closing on Wednesday. Then he can move in... and camp out until our furniture shows up a week later. Then the kids and I will join him.
       Wish I had more time to say goodbyes. We will miss our friends. Thanks to Victoria for helping me clean out my fridge/freezer and to the missionaries who stopped by and wiped out all the kitchen drawers and cabinets.  Thanks to Seth next door for mowing our lawn while we were away and his awesome mom who will sneak in and clean the mirrors and a couple windows since I packed all the cleaning supplies too soon.
      We will miss a lot of things in GJ, but we're excited to be homeowners again and to have a little more permanence in our lives.  On to the next adventure.


  1. That sounds so stressful and crazy! I'm glad there were such wonderful people around to help you.

    1. Yeah, it really makes a difference. It's really amazing how much easier it is to pack and move without having the kiddos to fuss over. I think if I'm able, I'll never move with kiddos around again. It wasn't really possible last time when Caleb was just 3 months old.

  2. Hope the whole move and transition goes as smoothly as possible. Excited for you guys!
