Photobucket COUNTDOWN....1 DAY until all the pieces of my heart unite in CO.....

What can I say? I found this photo when I was taking the 1980's out of magnetic albums. This is the very first time that BreAnne saw Krista.

Mike didn't grow up with a brother. I had no sisters. When we met Krista (6-3-1987) we had such hopes and dreams of the relationship these two "sisters" would develop. That relationship has developed.

Honestly, Bre has embraced her role as big sister from this very moment.....and Krista has followed suite. They've been amazing big sisters for all the children.

I love the excitement on Bre's face. We've seen the same excitement in recent years when we drove up in Spokane,WA.....when she and Krista RAN across the flightline in San Angelo to get to their siblings....and in one more day we'll see that excitement in the mountains of CO.

If you think of it pray for the girls and for Mike, I and the younger 5 as we travel today. We'll be traveling again will the older two boys.

Stephanie...we'll post that new circle of faces as soon as we find a connection after taking it. ::snort::

PhotobucketToo Screaming BUSY to take even ONE photos Today!!!

How's that for a title?

I cannot begin to remember all that we did today; but it all focused on getting us out of here.

Josiah called and volunteered to take the younger 3 to his apartment for a couple of hours. What a huge HELP. They LOVED having time with him at his "partment". It worked out well for all.

Josiah WILL be meeting us in CO. Another manager volunteered to work extra hours so he doesn't have to close Tuesday. He and Jamin will drive the whole shot in one day.

Arielle and I ran to Walmart for the annual "socks and underwear spree" that mortifies certain male members of this family. We had time for a nice little discussion about growing up et al....and um to those who were asking - I figured out that it worked best without a book. ::snort::

Jamin and Jared worked all day hauling things to the trailer.

The pool is drained, the water heater and a LOT of other stuff now reside at the dump, the clothes are packed.....lists are made...shepherd's pie and garlic mashed potatoes are in the's coming together and we'll be leaving EARLY tomorrow. (Actually in a few short hours).

Yes, of course, I'll blog from the road every chance I get. I know how much my faithful readers look forward to the annual gas pump photos. ::snort:: Shoot - the Grand Canyon, London Bridge, Disney World...NOTHING holds a candle to the gas pumps of America. ::snort::
