State Of This Home

Thanks for bearing with me as we've been in a full fledged packing flail this past week!  We finally set a date with the moving company and they will be knocking on our door in 4 days - ACK!!!  We opted to save a bit by packing ourselves, so we've been scouring craigslist for boxes....

Making lists....

And color coding to our hearts' desire.  And by we, I mean Mia and I.  She made our color-coded packing legend and it's just too sweet to redo....


James had to be in Ohio for a few meetings last week, so he took the opportunity to drive his car there.  He left the car in OH and flew back so we could make the final trip out as a family in one vehicle.  If you follow us on Instagram you probably saw that car loaded up with things we might need before movers deliver our household goods.  And some sweet goodbye hugs...


I had plans to exploit my child laborers and pack this whole place up while he was gone those 5 days.  HA!  Delusional?  Overambitious?  In denial that I have children?  Call it what you will, but "pack up the whole house" looked more like get the boxes and pack up 3 of them.  Real overachievers here.

James got home on Saturday morning and we made some decent progress over the weekend.  Now the rest of the packing/patching/painting/cleaning begins!  We're all getting excited to actually begin this adventure! 

But our excitement is dampened by the severe weather hitting that part of the nation.  Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those communities, especially the people of Washington, IL. 


Thanks so much for reading! We would love to keep in touch!
