Roadtrip It doesnt matter where youre going
The kids have been extremely good about helping out and getting things ready for our move, so I decided to get them out of the house for the weekend.

It’s going to be just the four of us driving, listening to music (they all have their playlists and CDs ready), swimming, and having sushi. lol…I’m sure there will be more than that going on, but that’s what I know is happening for sure.

My daughter said, “We all deserve a trip, after all we’ve done the past two days.” I, totally, agree with her.

It’s going to be so much fun!

I took the girls to choose paint colors for their new bedrooms yesterday.

It’s funny how much they have in common, yet how different they can be.

My husband’s best friend volunteered to paint their bedrooms before we move, so it’ll be a nice surprise for them when they get to our new house. (They think they’re picking paint so we can paint when we get there.)

They are excited about having their own room, but I have a feeling they’re going to miss sharing one.

Maybe not, lol.

The kiddos helped A LOT!

We want to make this move as easy as possible (if it’s even possible), so we cleared the gym and plan on using it to put everything we’re taking with us in there. So far, this is what we’ve put in there…

We still have 4 weeks before we close on the new house, but I want to get as much packing done as we can now, so we can get the cleaning out of the way as well.

Seriously, it felt like we did A LOT more than is shown here. Just sayin’.

Today we’ll be reserving the moving truck, car tow, and RV. We’ll also be purchasing a plane ticket.

Because we’re moving cross county, we’re going to need help with driving, so we’re flying someone down who volunteered to help.

Our little family isn’t very little, if you include all of our pets, and we calculated it would be cheaper to rent an RV compared to staying in hotels on our trip. (We also calculated it would be a 3 day move!)

Aside from it being cheaper, I thought it would be fun for the kids (and adults who are not driving, lol) to feel as if they’re taking a road trip, on the way to our new house. Plus, the kids have always wanted to ride in an RV.

It’s getting closer, and there is still so much to do, but we are all looking forward to getting to our new house, and starting a new chapter in our lives.

It’s all happening! Eeeh!

I’m sure the smile will go away by the end of the day though.

*I can’t believe this is actually happening. We’re purchasing a house!
