The move is underway! At least the packing part. I'm taking a 4th grade potition in a very small town in Oklahoma where much of my extended family lives. When I say very small, and when I say much of my family; if you stood on Main Street and threw a rock, you'd likley strike someone to which I'm related or have been at one time by marriage. I'm assuming, of course, that you're a pretty decent rock thrower. Drew and I are going up this weekend to look for a place to live. I can't say Drew is happy about moving, but, at this point, he's not yelling and screaming and declaring how much he hates me. Anyone who's parented a 13-yr.-old knows that this constitutes a lovely day in their presence. While the town we're moving to is in Oklahoma, it's actually only about a 2.5 hour drive from Granbury. This will make it VERY doable to get the other two boys (#2 and #3) for weekend visits and week long stays during the holidays. I haven't spent any time at all with them this summer and I'm looking forward to having them with me for a visit after I get moved to the new spot.
Sparky and Emma have not yet weighed in with an opinion about the move but the packing has worn them out as you can see from the photos above.
