I thought I would show you a glimpse of our last few weeks. This first picture is from the hallway of the house we just moved out of. Jonathan was getting boxes we stored in the attic so we could pack for our move.
We did a partial move ourselves through Uhaul. As you can see, the truck was backed up to the front door for easy loading. Here my husband is placing one of our red bookcases.
Many of the boxes that we packed ourselves were full of books. Even though the boxes were small, they were a little heavy for one child to carry themselves. But, our children still desired to help. And they were a very big help at that too! Here the girls are carrying a box together. They would carry them out and then Jonathan would put them in place.
My boys in action.
Joy carrying one by herself. She has a thing for going barefooted.
Finally hitting the road in the Uhaul. The children took turns riding in the front with Daddy.
After we unloaded the Uhaul at our new home, it was right back to Fayetteville to prepare for the movers to come and pack/load everything else. When you move as much as we do with moving companies, you learn to have a "no pack" corner. These are the things that you want to be able to put your hands on as soon as you get to the new place without sifting through hundreds of boxes!
Our den soon became an obstacle course.
This is the bonus room in the new house. See why I have not been blogging much lately? Most of the rooms looked like this.
