Travel day #1 August 1st, 2012
We stayed up most of the night packing and cleaning our rental, so I knew it would be a LOND day traveling. Add in the emotions and it made for a tough day. We met my family at IHOP for breakfast....I knew this would be the last time we are all together for quite a while. Micah and Jamie are also moving. And while we will see them briefly in November, it was that moment as an adult when you realize things will never be the same.....it's a hard thing to process. But, I wanted to enjoy the time with my family and not get too emotional.
My parents....I know this is a hard time for them too. The are losing 6 of their 7 grandkids to moves!
Me and Blaise. He thinks he is too cool for me.....but deep down, I know I am his favorite Aunt! And I am barely taller than him and he is only 8!! The kids is a GIANT!
This was our view that evening. I couldn't get a good picture, but it was simply breath taking. Such a good reminder of the ONE who is making this journey with us.
Now it's time to stop for the night.
