Moving Update #1

One week ago today was our big moving day!  Thanks to those of you who prayed for us or sent words of encouragement!  I really appreciated it!  The weather was perfect and everything went so smoothly! I was really blessed by how well everything turned out!  

Would you like to see some photos of the big day??

Unfortunately, Joe was sick with a sore throat, headache and fever on moving day.  :(  Nevertheless, he worked like a trooper, which is a good thing, because we couldn't have made it without his muscle!  :)



Chris has been working hard for me for the past three weeks!  I would not have made it without him!!  No exaggeration!  He has really gone above and beyond!  Even when too tired to take another load, if he saw me or one of his sisters struggling to carry loads of stuff out to the car or into the new house, he was right there lending a hand!  



The old washer and dryer -- ready to be loaded onto the truck.  Unfortunately, a couple days after we moved in, the washer decided to quit!! You may remember my excitement over having two laundry rooms??  Well, the washer that was already here started leaking water everywhere.  :(  So, I currently have two laundry rooms and no washing machine!  :(



Alan was right at home driving the moving truck!  You should have seen him back that thing down our looooong driveway!  Piece of cake!  :)



Boxes, boxes everywhere!



My little ragamuffin!  :)



Ever think about how many mattresses we have to move??  ;)




Part of our great moving crew!  I don't know what we would have done without our own strong sons, their friends from college, and our friends from church!!!



One of many bookcases that came off that truck!



That awkward moment when Tyler wondered if he should have chosen a different family to live with while attending college!!  ;)



Empty truck!  (for the second time!)  What a great sight!  :)



The difference between what young guys and not-quite-as-young guys do after a long day of moving . . .   ;)








Photo credits:  All pictures were taken by my amazing daughter, Hannah, with the Nikon camera that Ashlyn passed on to her for her 16th birthday!  :)  Thank you, Hannah, for capturing our move!

I know how much work this is having moved many, many times myself...but never with 10 children : )
I pray everything will go smoothly!

Elizabeth, I'm so happy for you to actually get moved and settled. As a side note, I have 2 laundry sites as well!! I love, love, love it. And the washer on your front porch... I have the exact ones both upstairs and down. They have served me well, as you can imagine.
If you're searching for new ones, make sure you get the ones that have a "sani" mode.
Looking forward to seeing some pictures when you get it settled. Don't forget to look at "Houzz". Lots of ideas on their site. ~Colleen~
