Movin’ on up, to the east side, to a deluxe apartment in the sky-y-y……..

Sorry I has been so long since I’ve blogged about anything.  Life has been super busy around here and I haven’t had time to do much of anything.

My parents were here for a week in June and we had such a good time with them.  I will have to do separate blog updates for all of that.  We had so much fun, did so many things, and I can’t properly blog about it at the moment. 

I’ll tell you, it was soooo nice to drive again!  Especially a car that I didn’t have to return to the rental place!!   :)  The kids were thrilled.  I think they were just happy driving to wherever we were going.  They didn’t care what the destination was, they were happy with the journey. 

I think the arrival of Hope came at the most perfect time.  It was like all the pieces that had been hanging up in the air just fell into their proper place.  Which leads me back to the title of this post.

We are moving to Winter Park, just north of Orlando.  Alex got a job out there, so the girls and I are in the middle of packing up this house.  Hopefully we will be nearly done by Friday when Alex comes back (he is up there working now) and then we will all be out there either Saturday or Sunday.

Mary asked me today if I was sad that we were leaving this house.  I thought about it and had to say “no.”  While I like this house, I never quite loved it.  And frankly, the stress of the past few years has left me exhausted.  I am ready to leave this place and go somewhere where I can sleep well! 

I am very happy that we will be closer to Mary and closer to my favorite place on earth…Disney.  We can finally get our water park passes that we were gifted at Christmas!  I’m super-excited that there is a great homeschooling group out there that is not religious based.  I’m sure there will be some awesome things for the kids to do.  There are tons of different opportunities out there that I am really eager to explore. 

I will once again be back to my regular blogging once we get over there next week.  Until then, I will be knee-deep in boxes, tape, and stuff.
