have i mentioned...

that we're moving?

I don't think that I have.

But we are...
On Saturday.

Sorry for the late notice.  :)

In September, we were hanging out with our friends Mike and Kristen.
While we were taking a tour of their newly renovated bathrooms, we went into the basement where they have had students living with the before.

Pretty much as a joke Kristen and I said that it would be awesome if we moved in.
Ha ha.

Ha?
So, after talking to Mike she said, "no really, you should move in"

Which is funny, because we had just been praying for a way to pay off our debt really fast. 
And this happened the next week.

We hummed and hawed about it a little bit.  
It will be a total of 4 adults and 4 kids living under one roof with one kitchen...

But then we decided to go for it!

What a blessing.

But as you can imagine, in the meantime around here, there have been piles of boxes, piles of what to keep out, what to store, and what to finally get rid of already(!), piling up in our apartment.

But we are super excited.

It's a good reason to go through things and decide:
-do we really need this?
-when was the last time we used this?
-do you think this bleach stained towel with holes in it is really worth keeping?

Since it will be for about 6 months to a year, it has also been tricky deciding what to put away in storage for that time. We don't need any of our kitchen stuff and we won't have space for all my nick-knacks.

So, books are in boxes, magazines are in boxes, crafts are in boxes.
And all I can think about is how excited I will be when I get to open it all in a year!
Just like Christmas!!

Wow, that's really awesome Kate! I hope the move goes smoothly and that this year is a huge bunch of awesome for all of you. What a blessing indeed!! This is the part where I really want to offer to help you with the physically moving part, but am kind of useless because Brandon's heading out into the woods hiking for the weekend and I am flying solo with the kids. Sam SUCKS at lifting heavy things (short you see) and Anika will lift things but then put them down so she can dance around for awhile. It's....not so useful. But if there's anything else you guys need please let me know - would love to help out!
