As some of you know, our family has been in a state of transition the past couple of months as we have worked to move three households including our own. The sorting, cleaning, packing, moving and unpacking definitely took its toll on our family. There were days I laughed at the absurdity of it all. There were days I wanted to bang my head against the wall. There were days of frustration and days of anger. Then there was the day I cried for the 30 minute drive from one house to the next. With tears streaming down my face I asked God why this was so hard; I told Him that it shouldn't be this hard. This season of my life has taught me two things: (1) this too shall pass; nothing lasts forever; and, (2) my children are awesome. They were troopers. Getting up early, going to bed late; eating on the run (I don't think we ate a home cooked meal for a solid week); sitting in car seats for hours while the grownups packed moving vans; and loading and unloading what they could when they could. They didn't whine, complain, or fight....at least no more than usual. But now all three households are moved and the unpacking is mostly done. We start homeschooling again on the 1st after taking the month off (another + about hsing). And life is returning to normal. It feels good to be getting back to our routine - even if it is in a new house. And it is good to catch up with everyone here on THC.
