|Yeah, so Jason said you would all want proof of all of my crazy packing....so here I am hugging/packing some book shelves....soo fun. Smile, Dawn this is for your blog :)|
|What do you do with a rolling laundry cart? Put the baby on and roll around the house of course. Hey, packing has to be made fun somehow :)|
|Awwww.....Sarah helping with Joanna- yummy baba time :)|
|A Goodbye gathering that happened right after our weekend camp last weekend. Which by the way- WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!! God is moving in this camp....and will continue!!!! :)|
|Our first 26' moving truck in our front yard. Funny the only other times we have ever taken pictures of the outside of our home.....for homestudies :) he he he he he|
|Now some of you might ask.....what do you do with Joanna when both of you are sooo very busy packing???|
|Answer: Put on her video for her of course :)|
|What is her video? The one Jason made for her birth family whom we love sooo very much to share with them her first year. :) SHE LOVES IT!!!! Of course she does!!!!! :)|
|Oh yeah, we also have the older kids help "babysit" with her while the others are all outside playing in the mud, jumping in puddles, going wild outside - while we are packing of course.... :)|
|Hello.....this is Joanna.....yes I know I am cute- What can I say? thank you....bye bye :)|
|This was our home.......|
|After packing up the moving van......|
|Notice some things missing?????|
|Don't worry there is still quite a bit to be packed.......|
|Any takers????? He he he..... Jason kept getting nervous when he said well...this won't fit on the truck...my response....it will fit on the next one- yeah....he didn't like that response.|
|One benefit from moving?|
|We have totally simplified - A LOT!!!!!|
|Us, and our kiddos....and that stack in the corner- that is what used to be on our changing table....wow I sure shoved a lot on that unit. :)|
So..... I am on my own the next few days. I took today OFF- well I mean from packing. Mommies never have a day off really :) he he he. BUT I did take time to have fun, giggle, read, and play with the kids.
Praying - tomorrow team FAMILY will be unpacking our crazy truckload of stuff, and then rest on Friday until he comes home to us - late night. Then Step 1 will be done. How many steps you ask....LOTS!
PRAYING for the children and families in Ethiopia who are in desperate need! PLEASE PASS THE PETITION ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
