Three days and counting

We are scheduled to leave in just three days. The U Haul is confirmed for pick up tomorrow morning. We can begin loading the heavy stuff into the U Haul then. We also have some things stored at a friends home and my sewing machine is there as well because I did much of my sewing for her.

Its time to close this chapter of our lives. I will miss the friends I have made here.

Mollie has already begun packing boxes with jarred and canned food. She is stacking the boxes with Hannah's help in the aisle of the storage trailer. When we go get the U Haul we will transfer those boxes to it. We will use the U Haul to pull the storage trailer.

We will have a little caravan of sorts when we travel. We will have the pick up pulling the 5thwheel, the U Haul pulling the storage trailer and then the car. We plan to boon dock on the way to save money and time.

Any new adventure is exciting and scary as well. I am just praying for safe passage and no car troubles. If you think of us please pray for our safety as well.

When we get to our destination we are hoping to find a spot of land that we can live on instead of an RV park. I am anxious to plant a garden again.

Jeff is counting the days left at work as well. He said they seem longer. I said its just because he is excited to move on to the next phase of our life.

One exciting bonus will be that we will get to see Joy soon after we get to where we are going. She is touring now with the choir tour and will be within a few hours of us so we will be able to drive to the nearest church for a concert and to see her.
