The Big Move

So we leave today! J is actually already there with a friend loading our stuff out of storage and into the Uhaul. I am at my sis Tam's house and the girls are all still sleeping. I barely slept last night! I hardly ever sleep the night before we go somewhere! really annoying cuz like I have mentioned I have just a wee bit of a drive!!! but I am excited! have I mentioned that before???

We should arrive around 8pm tonight if everything goes to plan. Our caravan has 4 vehicles, the Uhaul driven by J, the truck/trailer driven by our friend Donovan, the RV which is my parents being driven by my parents with a few of the children inside, then the Jeep driven by me with a kid or 2 and the dogs!! we will be winding our way through the highway heading North and homeward bound!

I called the school where the girls will be going. Their first day is Tuesday morning. I just have to go a bit earlier and register them and sign them up for the bus! I cannot begin to tell you HOW excited I am about the whole bus thing! like I just did 2 years in a row of half day kindergarten which means driving to the school 3 times a day! so I am thrilled. I will have to find a pre-school for Faith and then sign her up for swimming lessons and make those times my shopping and work out times. I really need to loose weight cuz I really pack it on with stress!

I don't get my telephone service until the 6th at our new house which means I will not have internet until then either :-( so I won't be able to blog until after then. Meanwhile I will take pics of the house and will post them for my next post....if I find my camera and all that fun stuff!!

So I will leave you all with thankfulness for answered prayers and all your continued support and a funny from foofoo aka Faith

I was bathing her last night trying to scrub the layers of dirt off her feet and my cousin was over here too and she came into the bathroom saw foo relaxing in the tub and said "ohhhhh you goina read a book too?" foo says "nope not yet" Lori says "oh you not old enough yet?" foo says.."yup, when I get boobs I will". oh.my.gosh. this obsession with her and getting boobs is too funny!!! she said it so matter of factly too, just priceless!

ok have a great weekend and I will talk to you next week!

Hey girl...so sorry that we never got to do one more 'goodbye' lunch/dinner/snack....but I'm so happy for you that you're finally heading to your new home! Church will NOT be the same without you guys - the gap you leave will not be easily filled. Praying for God to lead you to His new family for you in Pr. George! Let us know how you're doing!!

The big move! I know you must be so excited. We just made our big move all the way accross the country 4 months ago. Boy has it been a transition! So I can totally understand how chaotic it will be for you for a while.

But yeah! You're got your dream house!
