Summer has started off in a blur and it's not slowing down yet.
In early May, Ben and I began to talk about moving sometime over the summer. If we moved we wanted to do so before Ethan starts public Kinder in the fall. But we weren't sure about anything. He called our realtor and spoke with her about the possibility and talked about everything that we needed to do to get the house ready to go on the market and the next thing we knew she called us to say she thought she had a buyer. What?!?!?! Our house wasn't on the market, we weren't even ready to put it on the market, we didn't even have a price for it yet. We had literally just spoken to her about staging it the previous day. We didn't even have a prospect of a house to buy. Either way, the family came to look at the house. The house wasn't clean, the beds weren't made, I was making cupcakes to send to school the next day, and we had swim lessons that night. I spent 10 minutes doing the best I could and they saw the rest. They liked whatever they saw, though, because they made an offer and that was it. This all happened pretty much the last week of school, then we left for Disney the Friday after the boys got out, and we came back to pack up and move out of our house. Can you say chaos??? And to make it even better, the house that we thought we were going to buy fell through while we were at Disney and the day that we returned from Orlando, we jumped right back in the car to start another house hunt. Fun times! We quickly found another house but the homeowners did not have a place to move to, so we had to put all of our belongings in storage for 2 weeks, stay with our fabulous friend, Julie, and live out of suitcases in her home until they moved out and we can get moved in. Can you say chaos?
In the midst of the stress of everything going on, Ethan had VBS and we were able to toss in a couple of trips to Lake Lanier Islands. Hopefully, soon we can have a real summer!
Ethan loves the wave pool
But Caden has decided the wave pool is not for him
Because he much prefers the water play area best
Caden is disappointed that he's not tall enough to ride the water slides with Daddy and Ethan yet, so he and I hang out while they do the slides. It's definitely more relaxing!
The week we moved out of the house, Ethan had VBS so that was a huge distraction for him. It definitely helped the days go by faster!
With the move, I didn't get to volunteer this year or take pictures, so I am grateful for this shot that Ben took. I wish I had been around to take more of him. They had so many great experiences that week!
I still have to post about our awesome Disney trip but that will be slow to come. Part 2 of the move is about to begin. Thankfully, one week from now everything will be different. I am praying it all ends soon and that life can return to a normal pace :-)
