Going going gone.....

Our life over the past five years was packed up in two days, moved in one and all fit into an 18-wheeler. The movers left Friday afternoon and our house is now virtually empty. I didn't feel very sad as I watched our stuff being packed into LOTS of boxes but when I turned on our street Friday and saw that huge moving truck, I cried. It all kind of hit me. And then yesterday, when my sweet nephew came over to my mom's to play with Carter and me one last time, I really had a meltdown. But after that I was fine. It's been a stressful weekend just trying to get everything wrapped up but we're almost done. This has been a strain on Theo and I and Carter and I but it is only temporary and we'll be settling in by this time next week. Our plan is still to leave Tuesday and be there Wednesday night. Our stuff should be arriving Thursday so that will be nice not to have to stay in our new empty house for long without our things.

My dad came into town this weekend so we got to have one last dinner with him last night. Unfortunately, Carter was not in a social mood not having had a real nap the past two days but we still had a nice dinner. It was probably the last time we all get to hang out together for a while. I took some cute pictures that I will try and post whenever I can.

Oh, I almost forgot...we found someone to rent our house! We are working on a lease but we met the wife on Thursday and they seem like a great Christian couple. This is such an answered prayer for us. We really wanted to have all of this taken care of before we moved. It only took about 5 days to rent our house which makes me feel really good. We're not sure how long they plan on staying in the house because of her husband's work but six months of having renters is better than nothing. And it may work out that they stay longer than that....only time will tell. I'll feel more at ease once the lease is signed but I am trusting God that everything will be fine.

So over the next few days, I will have limited internet access but once we are settled, I promise to give you guys an update and post pictures of our new house! Please pray for us to have safe travels and that our things will arrive quickly and all in one piece :).
