MORE MOVING DAY PHOTOS
OK - enough about Super Size Saturdays already ::snort:: here's the really big news in our family this week. MORE PHOTOS OF JOSIAH'S MOVING DAY!
We have a storage unit. Mike and I have spent some time trying to remember WHAT was in the storage unit. We saved the swing set that the older children brought for the younger ones - there is no room for it in this yard...but what ELSE have we been storing.
We remembered a futon and a couple of computer desks. Cy can have the futon, and one of the computer desks. We'll bring the other one home for Jared to use as he is losing his desk to Arielle. Cy wants the TV (x-box action) - we haven't used it for years...sure take it.
Imagine our surprise when we discovered that MOST of the things in our storage unit are the GIRLS. ::snort::
You never know when you may want to drill through ice and do a bit of ice fishing in TEXAS! ::snort::
Mike found a PRINTER we forgot we owned - it was in the girl's room.
Zander was appalled when he opened Cy's fridge! "THIS is ALL you have to eat? BUTTER and CHEESE????"
After the storage unit we headed home and found that these two had been taking Jared's bed apart.
We had dinner and gave Josiah some house warming gifts....some lamps and a mattress pad. AND a gallon of milk that Zander insisted we buy for Cy.
We drove to his apartment. Hmmm....we lost the hinge to the futon. Never fear - Mike found one on the internet. It will arrive shortly.
Mike and Jared cleaned Cy's windows.
I scoped out the pantry. Here are Josiah's favorite organic treats, lovingly purchased via co-op for a son who is moving out on his own.
Here is what I found on the TOP shelf. ::snort:: He promised not to feed Zander any of it.
MIKE told Josiah that I will not check out his pantry again. Who agreed to THAT?
Zander checked the fridge and was happy to discover that Cy had gone grocery shopping.
We circled up and prayed - photo previously posted below.
We all said goodbye.
We all sweltered in the van while Mike gave Cy a few last bits of pre-move-out-fatherly advice....and as we waited....I GRABBED THE CAMERA! I love these men! I've decided not to post these photos - too personal.
Back at home Jamin measured his new bed. He's coveted this and will now have a double for at least a full year. ::snort::
Jared is thrilled to be away from his old bunk - his nose was 2 inches from the ceiling fan - hey you make the house work. He seems to be sleeping better.
The boys' room seems much bigger. Jared's bed/desk had been along the left wall.
Jared's bed/desk is now in Arielle's room. The trundle bed is back to a single. Stacia informed us that she was glad she had her "own bed" because "Arielle wakes me up ALL night and Arielle snores at me." ::snort:: Not QUITE accurate...but telling nonetheless. Here's Stacia in "all my own princess bed".
One less child to stalk with the camera on a daily basis...even *I* am not enough of a shutterbug to stalk an adult child at his apartment....at least not yet. LOL
