Military Move: The Packers are Here

Posted in Family, and Military Life

Military Move - Packers are here

Today, our pack-out begins. The packers are here busily packing up our things. While I would love to say that I got everything done that I wanted before they arrived, I can’t say that. We did get through a lot of our stuff, but there was still a lot more that we wanted to purge before we moved. Going back and forth between here and fixing up the cabin kind of kept us from accomplishing all that we had set out to do. Going through the house and preparing for the movers has also made me realize how much housekeeping has suffered due to being divided between the two places. Lots of dust and dust bunnies. Yikes! There are, after all, only so many hours in the day and days in the week.

It’s hard to believe that 4 years have already passed since we moved here. We’ve seen many people come and go in our neighborhood. We’ve met some really great individuals and families during our stay here. Munchkin has grown to really love her TaeKwonDo class, and it will be extremely hard to say goodbye to her classmates and instructors. In fact, that’s the one area of the move where she’s really struggling. As a mom, it’s hard to see her so frustrated by this aspect of the military lifestyle.

The next few days will most likely be a bit trying as we try to balance family, moving, D’s work schedule, and Munchkin’s TaeKwonDo. Are we homeschooling this week? No, we’ve actually taken the last couple of weeks off as we prepared for the move and got some work done on the cabin.

    • We’re hoping to find a new TaeKwonDo place for her as it’s something that she really enjoys. We’ll see what the Lord provides in the future. 🙂

    So glad we aren’t there to say goodbye. It will be really odd for you not to be where we left you though. When Abby saw the moving truck over my shoulder, she audibly gasped. I think it’s hard for her to admit that things change. 🙁

    • I understand how she feels. Change and goodbyes are just plain hard.

  3. I hear ya! Getting ready for the packers seems like a never-ending battle. I tried to stay up to date with purging since we arrive here in GA. Part of the reason for this is because we were only guaranteed a year here in GA. Anyway, I feel your pain.

    Poor Munchkin…we feel that pain here too. The kids and I alike are having a hard time saying good-bye to our church family and the homeschool friends we have made while living here.
