Packing up, moving out,and saying goodbye....

The last few weeks we spent going through everything to get ready for the move. The packers came last Tuesday to pack us up and on Wednesday they loaded the truck and headed out. I was standing across the street talking with our neighbor Miss Karen as they drove away and I had a lump in my throat. I was telling her that even though we move every couple of years, it's still not easy to move and say good bye to the things you love and the people you care about. After the house was empty we made the rounds visiting family and friends before making our way up to WV.

The first day a crew of 4 arrived to pack everything and the next day a crew of 6 loaded the truck. They were efficient and made it seem so easy.

I told Noah it was all right to throw a ball in the house if he wanted to now.

The kids seemed to have a great time chasing this little bouncy ball around.

And, look at all this space to ride bikes... good times!

I will miss going into Planet Smoothie for my favorite Lunar Lemonade and seeing Josiah. He is awesome!

Mei and Song were the greatest landlord's anyone could ask for. They own a Chinese restaurant called Songs Garden and we got take out from about once a week. The food is just fabulous and I'm sure we won't find anything comparable in WV.

I will miss my Wednesday night Body Combat class at the gym! Shaunna is an awesome instructor and made the class a lot of fun. All of the instructors at the BodyPlex are great and the ladies in the Kidsplex were so good to my kids.

We headed down to Tifton to see Travis's family. Luckily we were able to visit with Sonya for a little bit before she left for work. She is such a sweetheart!

Grandma Crowell didn't want me to take her picture because she said she didn't look presentable. But, I just had to get this one of Travis hugging her and I think it is priceless.

It is always great to visit with Aunt Cindy. Thanks for making us dinner!

Nana and Katy have such a special bond and will not know what to do without each other. So, we will have to plan a visit as soon as possible.

I am so grateful for the time we had to live in Atlanta for 2 years. It has been wonderful living so close to my sweet Mother and being able to spend more time with her. She is always there for me when I need her and I will miss her dearly.

The kids love going to Nana's house because she spoils them. It is always a nice diversion for them to stop over and see her even if it's just for a few minutes.

Noah hugging his Aunt Carol good-bye. He loved spending time at her house with his cousins Tanner and Tate and is already asking if he can spend a few weeks next summer at her house. We decided not to say good bye... just see you later.

I could go on and on about the many wonderful people I got to know and the things I enjoyed doing in Woodstock, but the list would never end. I know we will be back to visit because Woodstock is like home to us.
