Packing Day! - Friday, May 22

I got back late Thursday night from my OB appointment in SC. After driving 6 hours each way to be there for it, the appointment took all of 20 minutes!!! Oh well - it's peace of mind. And I got to see David briefly. And drop a few things off at his house that I didn't want the movers to take. And actually I VERY much enjoyed the QUIET car ride...all by myself!!!

Friday morning, the packers arrived (they were actually waiting for me when I got home from taking Josiah to school). It was a husband and wife team - and they were amazing!!! They were totally done by 2 pm. Packing my whole house! It made me tired just looking at them. I was able to clean throughout the day - wiping out cabinets and things in the kitchen as she got them emptied out.

Once they finished up, I went to pick up the kids and we headed straight for Mom's house to spend the weekend there. After all, we didn't have anything at our house to do anymore! :)




I took these pictures of our "measurement wall" - you know, that spot in the kitchen where you have your kids line up and your track their height. I wrote down all the numbers because they didn't turn out so great on camera. It was definitely a bit emotional to think back on how big they have all grown while in that house. Some very sweet memories.
