Just sitting here thinking before life becomes crazy for awhile!

Well, Chad and I packed up everything we think we need for the next 3 weeks and we have the movers coming Monday. That is the one nice thing with the military they do move us! I took a few pictures of Aiden and Taylor today horsing around in the backyard. They are just such a joy to watch, they can bring you up when you are feeling down. I shouldn't say I am feeling "down" but I am a little sad about moving as you can imagine. Taylor had her friends over for one last sleepover, they are such great girls. So we have one week left in school, a field day, movers coming to our house, then we will be going to the shore for a week with my sister next Sunday.

Saying goodbye... not an easy thing

Well, we are getting down to the wire with our move. Our house will be packed up Monday-Tuesday, and then we will only have a few more days left here. I am feeling a little more emotional then usual here of late. Last night Chad had his going away dinner at Charlie Browns restaurant. It was nice but just another stamp that this is about to happen. It is hard leaving once you have been someplace for ten years. It has been great here, lots of memories - mostly good and of course the one sad thing. Once you are getting ready to leave some place you hope that you lived as good as you could ...seen what you could see. I do think that we have done a lot and I am so thankful for that. I am so thankful for the time I have had with my friends and family. Taylor's school has been such a blessing to us, I am sad to see her leave it. She came home from school the other day and crawled in bed for 2 hours. It is hard to see your kids sad, but I know she will bounce back. And thank god for the internet! Plus we will be back in the summers. We do have things to look forward to at our next place. It is just hard leaving a lot of memories and going to a new place.

Okay, so enough with that.. well gotta get packing again. Oh and one more thing.. Taylor was the best speller in Kindergarten this year at her Spelling Bee! Her little friend Sara was the second runner up. So cute and special.

Aidens Birthday!

Sorry for this late post... It has been non-stop with packing and everything. It seems like we have had something to do everyday. These are pictures from Aidens birthday from May 27th. It is amazing how far he has come. He is just such a happy camper and it has been so amazing to have this positive little boy in our lives. So positive we probably will adopt again sometime in the near future! All in God's time.
