Crazy Weekend


My wonderful Sis and her hubby are here! What a big blessing to our family. Hopefully it is to theirs as well. Saturday, we went to move their stuff from the moving trailer into a storage unit. Silly me. I really thought it would take 2-4 hours. I just have forgotten what a big job moving us, and we had the baby while a babysitter had the big kids, and there wasn't a storage unit super close to where the trailer was. So...we worked and worked. DH and Sis's DH worked longer than us, as we had to get back to relieve the babysitter.

While we were doing all this moving, my parents were driving Sis's other car here. They ended up stopping just two hours away in a hotel and staying overnight that night and getting to our house on Sunday afternoon after church. It was nice to see them, even though they were here for less than 24 hours. Since they were here on Sunday and DH would be working Monday and Sis's DH would be leaving to go out of town Monday, we had to finish the unloading, even though we usually wouldn't since it was the Sabbath. It still took awhile, but the four of us did it! Sometimes the boys might have thought we were in the way...but, really, it took all four of us to do the work and my parents keeping all the kids (except K...she was sick, so we kept her in the car watching a DVD with us) to get it all done!

It was such a short, busy visit that I really didn't take many pictures (Darn it!). I am always sad to see my parents leave, since I don't get to see them much.

Moving is hard work- I swore when we moved the last time I would never do it again.
It's worth it to be close to family.

Moving stinks.... glad you had lots of help! I agree, Poor K.

Moving is quite a bit of work... I know as this is our sixth home and our second country to live in! (Between that was moves into and out of apartments as well... in total we have moved 13 times!) So, I can completely empathize with your family! We are so sorry that K has been feeling ill!

You are quite lucky to have your sister nearby! Our family is hoping to all congregate within driving distance of one another. It is a family dream and I hope to one day see it come to pass. Congratulations! It will be so wonderful to have your little ones around their cousins and to have firm friendships in place for the future. Family is such a blessing! I am sure that you will both love having the other nearby!

Just seeing your blog makes me tired. What a weekend. I thought I was busy. It doesn't even compare though.
