The Chaos (after a lot had been cleaned and packed!)
We were so thankful to not only have help finishing the packing and loading the truck, but also cleaning! While, at the beginning it felt like we would never finish, the many hands helped things really move along, and as the afternoon was coming to a close we all stood in an empty and (fairly) clean apartment. Although, somehow, even though the apartment was completely empty, it didn't feel like we were actually leaving. It didn't feel like that was the last time I was going to be there...
Jen & Elizabeth, 2 of my biggest cleaning helpers
John takes a break to talk to the photographer while Rob tries to figure out how to fit in the boxes.
The babies having fun with Gigi & the Kims...
Ryan was without pants for a little while because he was so quick and squirmy that they couldn't get them back on after changing his diaper!
No matter what she was doing, Allie would pause to pose for the camera!
As you can see, they did eventually catch him and get his pants on!
We hit the road and had an uneventful trip to Albany...in fact, the entire trip (split up over 3 days) was uneventful. The babies traveled exceptionally well, we made great time (especially considering that we had the truck slowing us down), and there were no major catastrophes...all the prayers for a safe & uneventful move were answered!
Monday morning we loaded up and set out on the last leg of the trip to our new home!!
