We are here!

No pictures, I am bumming off a wireless signal we are faintly picking up, I just wanted to give an update, more for my online journal, so feel free to skip this if you get bored.
We had some wonderful people show up and help us load up our moving truck. The next day, several wonderful women showed up as well to clean my house. By 4pm, we were ready to go. We were going to go to TX, but with all the flash floods, changed plans and ended up in Lexington, KY that first night at Tad's brothers. We then drove past St. Louis and stayed and swam. The next day we drove out through Kansas (not much to note). More swimming and free breakfast, it was nice. We then went to Libery Jail and then Independence, MO. It was fun and a good break for the kids. Then we went to Denver (WY was the most boring part for me...)and stayed with my first missionary comp in Argentina, (she is the best) who took good care of us. Then one last day to G and G's house where we stayed for almost a week waiting for the truck. It finally came last Thursday, we unloaded with more help of the other Denison's and strangers. Can I say how blessed we have been in the last two weeks for people helping us move and clean and feeding us, etc? Too much for me to count. I am so grateful, moving is so stressful! We had been driving back and forth and hour to SLC everyday to take SM to preschool. Then G and G watched the kids all day while we unpacked Friday and we finally slept in our new place! Its not as big as the house, but are enjoying it so far and have 0ver half the boxes unpacked! Nice to be getting settled.
We'll see how this week goes with Tad starting work and maybe snow!

Argh, I can't believe you were in Liberty and Independence, I would have totally driven down there just to see you. Now I don't know if we can live by you when we spend our 4 months in Utah next year. J/K I still love you. I'm glad you are getting settled and I am very glad that you are in Utah now because now I will get to see you more.

I am glad you made it and that things are going well. I'm impressed you already have S in preschool. Good luck with everything. I'm still jealous that you are in UT.

Wow - back in Utah. My first impression was that I would be able to visit you more, but I have the feeling you will be here when I am there. I'll always check with you first before making travel plans :)

Yeah. I'm glad you go there safe and sound. I'll look forward to future posts. ;)

Let us know where you are living. It would be fun to get together.

Yay! You made it! Moving IS exhausting. We already miss you guys! Primary and nursery just weren't the same this last week without your little guys! Hope the week goes well. (I am still jealous of you being there!!)

Yay! I'm glad you made it safely and that you are getting settled.

Thats still so crazy that you're done with everything--Atlanta, school, etc... We'll be excited to see some pics of your new place.

Sounds like you turned the drive out into a fun little road trip. And yipee for half the boxes being unpacked. I think that's my least favorite part of the whole moving process. Hopefully we'll be able to get together the next time we're out your way.
