Moving day – Texas style

I have been in Wisconsin for almost two months now, and Sunday is when all the furniture is finally being moved. With Eric living in Texas through the end of the semester, we didn’t want to move everything until it was absolutely necessary.

Now, don’t think I’ve been doing without. Just this weekend, I found a great sofa and loveseat set to furnish the new place. You can read more about that here.

 The very next day, Eric had all of our things in Texas ready to go for the moving truck.

I’m amazed they fit such a large truck down the street.

 With some help from my parents, they were able to load the truck in just over an hour.

To our suprise, we took up less space than we estimated – just 6 ft!

Way to go everyone! Can’t wait to see it all next week!

Thank you for all your help, mom and dad! And thank you, Eric for such great organizational and planning skills. You win the award for best husband on this one :) 

Wisconsin…here we come!

Last week, Amanda received a promotion and will be moving to the organization’s corporate office next week. In preparation for the move, she has gone through all her “winter” clothes and came up with the outfit above. They area actually her ski/snowboarding clothes from high school. {we’re still working on the shoes}

Over the next couple of months, we’re really going to rack up the frequent flyer miles with our back and forth trips. Then in December, we’ll be together again in Wisconsin. Eric really didn’t want to leave his kids after only 3 weeks of school. We are so blessed that his principals took the news so well. {one even offered to let him stay with them the last month after our current lease runs out}

Through this transition time, we have already seen God provide and cannot wait to see what else he has planned.

In the meantime, please pray for Amanda to find an apartment up there. It has been a difficult search from 900 miles away. Also, pray for our safe travels this weekend up there. It will be a long haul, but great time spent together.
