The little things can make me smile...

Chad and I are getting ready to go out to Illinois for a few days this week. My parents were nice enough to take the kids for 4 days so we can go out and see where we will be living for the next 3 years. It is going to be a whirlwind of days... we have planned to visit the school we will be sending Taylor to, look at some houses, meet Chads co-workers, meet a few friends of mine and explore the area. I heard St. Louis has a good fondue restaurant The Melting Pot Restaurant that is suppose to be romantic (so we will see if it brings the romantic side of Chad out, ha ha) .

Seriously, it has been a little stressful thinking about leaving, saying goodbye, getting school records, medical records, canceling gym memberships and not to mention packing 10 years worth of things... I was a little stressed out today, then I came downstairs and there is Aiden with his sunglasses on upside down and his jacket on inside out and upside down. Then there is Taylor who just lost her two front teeth! It reminds me of all I have to be thankful for. It seems like people are so friendly out there and we are definitely going to make the most of it.

How wonderful that the 2 of you are getting away ALONE, TOGETHER! Even if it is to take care of all the business of moving. I'll start praying extra hard for a boost to the romance factor--haha!
