Saying Goodbye

We lived in boxes and ate cereal out of plastic cups.

Missy slept on the big pile of moving blankets.

The rest of us slept on the floor.

We said goodbye to our oldest son.  This goodbye was the hardest part of the whole move for me.  We also said goodbye to our farm and all of our dreams for that piece of property.  We said goodbye to the home that we have poured our hearts, our labor, and our finances into for the last 6 1/2 years.  I'm not going to lie...it was hard.  But, we said Hello to the next part of our life... a new BEAUTIFUL home that doesn't need any updates or work or walls removed...8 acres that will be room enough to house the animals that we desire...a fantastic job for my husband...and weekends of fun when our oldest son will come and enjoy being part of our family once again. 

grace and peace,
julie

P.S.  I haven't taken any new pictures of our new home.  Stay tuned for those soon!

Julie, I had to wipe a tear away reading this post. You've got such a good, optimistic, faith filled outlook on the new place. Can't wait to read all the adventures & see how your new life settles in. How far away will your son be from you? So cool that he can spend weekends at the new place! Doesn't make it as hard, like if he lived far away in Alaska or something. Love the photo of you and the kids.

((BIG HUGS)) Julie, I know it was hard for you and especially leaving your son, but I bet there are ALOT of new happy times to come in that new house and ALOT of great weekends together:)

Ah (sniff) it is so bittersweet to move. If you think leaving your oldest behind was hard, wait till its time for your youngest to go.

Glad he is close enough to visit. It won't be long till ya'll have new wonderful memories made in the new place.

Can't *wait* to see pictures!
