We've Arrived....

So after all the stressing, loss of sleep, eye twitching (yes, I believe I have developed a twitch from stress/lack of sleep)....we are finally in Colorado.

I feel like everything happened so fast it still feels not totally real.

The following is a play-by-play of our final week in Eagle, Idaho through our move......feel free to stop reading here as this may bore some.

The last day of school was June 9th. Austin and I spent all of Friday packing everything and moving it into our garage so we could easily pack the u-haul. We ended up packing all night Friday. When I say all night I really mean all night. The taxi was scheduled to pick us up at 5:00 am Saturday morning to take us to the airport and we finally got the last things into the garage around 4:30 am. We then spent a glorious week in Mexico, totally relaxing. We flew home to Eagle Friday night, landing at 11:15, and getting home a little after midnight. We pulled out the air mattress, woke at 6:30 to get the u-haul. Austin and his friend from work Don loaded the dang thing while I finished boxing everything up in the kitchen (p.s. I don't care who you are the kitchen is the ABSOLUTE worst think to pack up). We stopped by to say goodbye to aunts, uncles, and cousins and then were on the road to Ogden by 4:30 or so. Arrived in Plain City around 9:30, said goodbyes to nieces and nephews and some brothers and sisters and went to bed around 12:30. Austin got up loaded the remainder of our things and we were off to Eden. Loaded everything we've been storing at my parents house, and we were on the road by 9:30 or so. We finally pulled up to our new house around 7:30.

We are so grateful for all the friends and family who helped us during this move. Whether you helped Austin with vehicles, loaded trucks, picked us up at the airport, let us sleep at your house, stored our things, helped us unload trucks, talked with us on the phone when we were stressed out developing twitches, send supportive text messages, helped us find our new ward, or babysat our only surviving plant while we were in Mexico......we thank you and love, love, love you!
