Early this morning Josiah began moving boxes.
Josiah, Zander, Jared and I made the first trip. Throughout the day Josiah continued to move things over and take various younger ones with him to see the new place.
I was going to make this Wordless Wednesday - but it isn't Wednesday and it's rather doubtful that I can be wordless. Jared suggested "Too emotional to talk Tuesday". ::snort:: But this photo is great and says it all.....pride and hope at a new phase of life, a bit of reluctance and moving on...someone in the background stalking with the camera....
He has a kitchen.
Zander's favorite thing about Cy's apartment.
Zander nabbed the camera;here are the things that caught his eye.
We waited while Cy did the checklist thing and signed papers. This was inevitable.
Then it was time to unload Cy's car.
Josiah rescued this antique table from my giveaway pile, Jamin rescued it from the S family when they moved to Dallas.....
At my baby shower for Josiah I was given a dresser. It was the nicest piece of furniture we had for YEARS. For some reason Josiah became very attached to this dresser. It is HIS dresser. It is moving with him.....19 years and still workable.
Ah - part of home goes with him - yummy beef and Mom's homemade organic frozen spaghetti sauce.
Arielle and Stacia accompanied us on the last trip of the day.
Predictably, Stacia "LUFS" everything in the apartment.
"I LUF this table". Cy bought it at CIA this a.m.
"I LUF this bed!"
She also "Luffed" the closet, the toilet, the bath tub.... ::snort::
Most of all Stacia "LUFS Cy!"
Josiah is working tonight. He has tomorrow off. In a strange twist of irony - so does MIKE...because something came up and he can't have the other day off or something....tomorrow we'll go to our storage unit and pick up a few things we're giving Cy...and he'll sleep in his new digs.
It really is amazing how very quickly children grow up these days. We are proud of the drive and ambition that Cy has. We are proud of his dedication and heart for God. He's bought a car. He's saved up for the remaining 3 years of college. We can't think of another reason that he should wait to move out....but we still have 24 hours to think on it. ::sniff::
