We Have Arrived....

Well, we made it to Boise! I don't know how we managed to pack up our entire house and load it into a 24-foot truck but somehow Paul made it happen. What a long and crazy few weeks it was at our house. Thank goodness we had two very helpful grandmas who were willing to come stay with us and help take care of Evan or else I don't think we would have been able to get it all done.

While we were in the process of getting ready to move, Paul started a new job, which meant he was busy traveling and working. I was still working full-time, which meant I was gone most of the day too and packing on the nights and weekends. We also had a few things going on with the closing of our house. Needless to say, we were going in every direction.

On the day we moved, I went to a half day of work for my last day (SAD!!). Paul spent the morning with a friend loading up our moving truck. When I got home, my mom and I finished cleaning up a few things in the house and by 7 p.m. we were ready to hit the road. We decided to leave at night so Evan would fall asleep in his car seat. It worked and he slept the entire way.... ahhh, a peaceful ride! My Mom and I rolled into Boise around 1 a.m. and Paul and the dogs followed in the moving truck around 2 a.m. We're so happy to be here, and we already feel like this move has been a great blessing for our family.

Some of My Work Friends Gave Me A Going Away Lunch
Love All My Great Friends!! I Will Miss Them!!

Glad you made it ok and even more happy to hear your baby slept the entire decision to go at night! Its so sad that you are gone from the E...Its just not the same when I drive by your house and think someone else is living there. Do you have a house in Boise already? Do you have family there? Keep posting so we know whats goin on. Hope you love it!
