chaos

Moving day is 3 days away and this is the chaos that we are living in right now! Yikes!

I can't believe the big day is almost here. The past few weeks have been a blur. We have been packing non-stop, making calls and signing papers. I don't think I have stopped moving long enough to actually realize that our time in this house is almost up. I just put Olivia to bed and it was hard to choke back the tears. We have been talking to her about the changes that will take place very soon. We also told her that she will have a new bed room that will have much more room for all of her toys. Now when we ask her if she is excited to move to her new house she says, "Yes, new bedroom!". I am still preparing for a freak-out the first few nights. But she will adjust quickly and start having a blast in her new house before we know it.

We have a lot of people helping us with the move this weekend. I want to thank them all in advance as I know it will be a long, hard day. It will be so nice when it is all over. I know we have a lot of work ahead of us but we are getting more excited each day. For now we will enjoy these final hours together in our first family home. So, as Olivia's says each morning as we leave for school, "Goodbye, Home!".

wow all of those boxes bring back such memories...yuck. I don't envy you at all..I wish you all the best. Believe me Olivia will adjust very quickly, her cousins moved many times while they were young and they both adjusted beautifully, if you and Todd are happy and excited about the move she will be too, good luck.
Love Aunt Sue Sue

Wow, here it is Sunday night and I am sure you must be tucked amongst boxes in your new home. I am so happy for you all. I don't envy the move at all- will be doing this in 3 months as we leave our apartment and move south of St Louis. Hope the move was seamless, or at least as next to it as possible.
Love ya guys!
