Three moves all in the same day

How did this happen, three of our children moving all at once. We went from five kids including my nephew to one in 13 months. Wow life is every changing with such wonderful opportunities.  I have realized true happiness is seeing your kids achieving and reaching their goals. 
Since all three of these exciting events happened the exact day I had many helpers to make it happen.  My Mom and Paul helped drive Joslyn and Justin's vehicle to Ohio.  It took them three days to drive across the country.  They loved seeing all the sights and arrived just in time to move in on Saturday!  Their place is so beautiful, can't wait to see it in person.  Nana and Paul thank you so much, I truly couldn't have done it without you.

Three weeks ago weeks we all moved Laurisa and Grafton into a storage because they had a three week interim before moving into their new house.  What a treat to have them stay with us for three weeks until they closed on their house. Happy New House.
Mitch and I headed to Utah to get him all settled in the dorms for BYU.  He decided to go summer term so he could get some schooling in before his mission.   I really enjoyed the parent orientation and it was fun to see Mitch make so many friends the first day.  He is definitely in his element. After we got him all moved into his dorm room we went shopping and out to dinner at the Brick Oven.  It was so fun to reminisce and go down memory lane. I took this picture of where I lived when Wade and I met. 
We really enjoyed being with family, Mom took off work to be with us and we spent time with the Heaps.  It was a fast trip, but much was accomplished in such a short time.  I know Mitch is where he is supposed to be and will have so many great experiences, which makes letting go so much easier. GO Mitch, GO Cougars
