Moving day finally arrived on January 25th and it was humbling how many people came over to help with last minute cleaning and to say goodbye! Wow! I tried to be so strong the entire day, but had a couple moments where the tears crept in. I am SO thankful for everyone that helped us - I really cannot thank them enough. Everything went so smooth and so well and we were on the road by 7 p.m., which is not too bad.
There were a LOT of tears as we drove down our street for the last time and it was heart wrenching hearing my children so sad in the back seat of the car! I could not hold back the tears myself! So many great years in that neighborhood and so many great friends and memories. Also, we left both of our families and we love being with our families. It's hard to be asked to leave all of that, but we know we are doing the right thing and have no doubt everything will work out for the best!
|My dear friend, Cassie, came to help clean and cheerfully cleaned the bathrooms and then put Keira to work cleaning the base boards - it was adorable.|

Right before we left we decided to get pictures of the kids in all of the empty rooms
|We weren't necessarily feeling as goofy as this picture shows, but that's how we kept our spirits high by saying a goofy goodbye.|
The following pictures are of us unloading in St. George. Jason's family came down and helped us. :) Once again, we are SO thankful for all the help that everyone gave us. We are so incredibly blessed!
