Moving Day

Moving day has come and gone, but I did want to share some thoughts and memories that I have of the big day. It was quite the day. A roller coaster of emotions: excitement, anticipation, fear, annoyance, frustration, disappointment, laughter, joy, etc. Moving is never easy on anybody. There are so many logistics, and opinions on the logistics, that make it tough. But we're so grateful for all those who came and gave of their muscle, time, and heart!

The day started off with donuts. What moving day doesn't include donuts?

It was a busy Saturday for lots of people, and so we only had a couple of friends show up to help, and most of those were kids. But those who did show up, really worked hard and blessed our socks off! Our friend, Cody, came for an hour or two in the morning. The Ketters came early and left sometime after lunch. Some Finneys came mid-morning. The other Finneys came at lunch time and stayed til well after dinner.

Our neighbor and good friend, Theresa, watched the two littlest for the day - it would have been extra tough with those two under foot.

My parents were at the new house getting things ready and cleaned - another wonderful blessing!

We are still surrounded by boxes, but at least all of our stuff is here. Now it's time for the real work to be done!
