Moving Over The 4th of July

Oh boy, this past week has been a whirlwind.  I feel like I'm just now starting to catch my breath. Thursday evening we got our keys to our new house.  We were excited and started moving some already packed boxes and bags.

Cleaning out packed boxes makes plenty more room for more boxes.  Lots and lots of packing has been going on.

Friday was Independence Day.  Good ole 4th of July.  We all got decked out in our red, white, blue, and headed out for a nice fun day.

We stopped at my in-laws to pick up Kelly, my sister-in-law and head out to our good friend Buck's house.

At Buck's house, we had good food, good company, and fun setting off fireworks.

One of my old friend's parents were there also, and the Dad played the guitar and sang for the girls while they danced.

After a few hours, it was time for us to go.  Off we went to our friend Terry's house, where the rest of my in-laws were.  Even Shawn's Aunt Karen and Uncle Iggie from Nebraska were there.  We had more good food, more good company, and more firework fun.  I'm not big into setting off fireworks, but I like to see the enjoyment the kids get out of them, and I do enjoy watching fireworks in general. As long as nobody gets hurt.

After we were done shooting off our fireworks, we went down to watch the firework show by the T-Bones.

We got back home fairly early and Shawn got back to moving stuff.  I feel guilty because I went to bed instead. We've had so many late nights and and I'm up early-ish with the kids when they get up so I was just worn out.  

Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, with the exception of Ben's t-ball game on Saturday, was all about moving, unpacking, and cleaning.  

We're finally out of the old house, but are still unpacking and working on the new one.  I can't wait to be done, to have all of my stuff where it belongs and have all of my pictures hanging on the walls again.

Hi Liz!
Hope this past week finds you more settled in the new house and enjoying the extra room! Moving, in and of itself, sucks, but I always enjoy finding new ways to use my old decorations and pictures, I also like seeing my furniture in different places, which is probably why after 12 years in our home I am still rearranging the furniture in the living room and kitchen a couple of times a year - lol.
Fingers crossed that the next move is your last into your forever home :)
I hope you have a great week ahead, I am into week 2 of our short summer school program at work, and the weather for the upcoming week looks unsettled, so I won't mind working too much ;)
Take some time to soak up the sun and enjoy those babies.
Take care & God Bless

I would say I understand, but you know I do, having JUST been through this and in a way, still unpacking at the new house LOL

It's all fun and games until you start moving boxes, then it seems like it's never ending.

Glad you're moved in :)
