We Are Moving!

A couple of months ago, we were given the opportunity to buy a house.  This isn't the biggest house you have ever seen, nor is it the prettiest.  The special thing about this house is where this house is located. (Isn't it always the way).

This house is right beside my in-laws on a few acres of land.  The house belonged to my mother-in-law's stepmother (Mimi), who has lived there for over 50 years. Mimi and her family have decided that it would be best for her to go live in a more senior-focused living community.  She offered it to our family.  Now, when I say our family, I mean the three immediate families that make up "US". Out of the three, the house ultimately comes to us. 

So, after a few months of paperwork and lots of praying, we have a date: April 1.  Even though a lot of things are in God's Hands, like selling our house quickly, we are moving forward with the move. We are supposed to start packing today. It is March 14.  Yep, we are supposed to have an entire house packed in 17 days. A five (sometimes six) person family needs to be out by the 31st.  EEK!

I hope to post more about our move as we journey on this trip. Any tips would be appreciated.
