The Big Move

Well last week was the week of the big move! I had previously talked about our decision to move and how it all went down (check out here and here). And we were so thrilled that the day had finally arrived that we would close and move! I had spent the week leading up to the move (and right after vacation - crazy timing!) packing and moving boxes to the garage to make it as easy as possible for the actual move. I was exhausted before we even stepped foot into the new house. But I got it all done and the house packed.



Finally Thursday came around and we finally close on the house. We were given access to the house until that afternoon (long annoying story) then we moved as much as we could with three cars. And in case you were wondering Olathe was in the middle of a heat advisory so it was stupid hot. But we got all the boxes and as much as we could moved, leaving the big furniture plus some still in the house. But that was going to wait until the next day.


And that day came along and we were finally moving our big stuff meaning we would finally get our first night sleeping in our new house. And it started feeling like home. It really felt like ours seeing our stuff start to fill it up. My dad and Rob moved more stuff while my mom, the kids, and I stayed at the new house. I got bedrooms unpacked and ready for us to crash into that night then got to work on the kitchen. I couldn't wait to unpack into my beautiful kitchen.

But we weren't done by the end of the second day. We still had to go back the next day for a quick clean and to get a few more things still at the house. Plus we had to say good-bye to our old home one last time. To be honest, it was a very bitter sweet. I definitely wasn't expecting to feel so sad about leaving the house but it had been our home for five years and I was sad to move on, but at the same time I was so excited about the new house and was already so in love with being there.



So now we are getting settled into our new house. I still have a ways to go figuring out where I want things and just getting boxes unpacked. Plus we have some storage to unload still but we are getting there slowly. It definitely takes about ten times longer now that I have two "helpers" willing to lend a hand. But I'm getting there. So if posts are spotty for a bit that might just be why. And of course a house tour and to show off our home is definitely coming, but I need a few more boxes gone first.

We are definitely loving the house. The kids have adjusted well - the cat not so much but it already feels like home and we love it here. We love the decision we made to buy this house and are so excited about the next phase of our lives.
