Today we started loading the truck around 8:45 am and finished up around 5:45 pm. For the better part of the day it was the two Michael's and myself. Which was possible because Kelly watched the girls while all of this was going on. Not to mention a huge help from Jennica and Chris M. At about 3:20 pm my old friend Phud brought in some reinforcements. He along with about five students from his youth group and Lindsey came and finished off the load out. Thanks to my friend Jose we are pulling a trailer with all our "garage" stuff along with the UHAUL truck. After emptying the house Anita, the girls, my father-in-law, the "kids" and I all came over to the hotel to enjoy a few moments of fun and relaxation before we all said goodbye. We're at a hotel tonight because we shut down the gas at the house and I'm a big fan of hot showers. Erin offered to host us but little Luke needs some recoup time. Thanks though Erin, really. I can't tell you how much it meant to have some people around us willing to do whatever they are asked to help. Tonight I'm going to rest and tomorrow we're off to Charleston. Thank goodness we're not unloading until Sunday!
