Packing, Packing, and more Packing...

Yep! That's what we're doing. Lots of packing, sorting, selling, giving to goodwill, maintaining my sanity...that kind of thing. We are 12 days away from the Big Move! I can't believe it, this year has gone by so quickly. I've been trying not to be too emotional about the whole thing...yet. I have been trying to wait until the actual moving day but, you know tears, they sort of show up when they want to. :) I don't really get emotionally attached to things. People, yes. Things, not so much, It's just stuff. But, the one thing I did sort of get a little emotional over was the kid's swingset. Our front yard is now bare because we can't take our swing set with us and the new owners of our home didn't need or want it. We explained to the kids why we couldn't take it and how it would be blessing other children and they would get to have fun on it. I was convincing myself as well.
I've experienced moving from a small apartment to a house but, never the other way around. People do it all of the time, it just feels different. The closer it gets to moving day, the more excited I become. I'm looking forward to all of the great things The Lord has in store for us in Cambridge, MA.

Well I for one think it's very nice of you to remove the swingset for the next owners of your home. The previous owners of ours left us two of them, one of which we still haven't been able to remove from our yard!

I'm excited about all that is in store for you guys! :-)
