Moving Day

Our moving day arrived yesterday morning -- and with it came the welcome sight of an army of helping hands. We were so incredibly blessed by so many friends and church family who went out of their way to help us sort, pack, clean, wrap, load, stack, transport, unload and organize our various possessions. Moving is an adventure in itself!

Dear friends -- we don't know what we'd have done without you! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

The stack starts diminishing as the trucks are loaded.

The brave crew sorting out our canning cellar...

...and figuring out what to do with it all!

Trying to understand what is going on!

Creative problem-solving!

Making lunch for the crew
It was an adventure serving the meal with most of our kitchen-ware packed!

Lunch break!

With rainstorms threatening, we drove the trailers to the new house and started unloading. Throughout the afternoon we heard reports of pouring rain just miles from our house....but we only had a quick shower while everything was safely loaded. Praise the Lord!

Unloading into the garage.

We were so delighted to have our friend, Kori, visiting from Florida over the weekend!

Lindsey worked with Ruth so diligently that by evening our new kitchen was in complete working order!
The new fruit cellar

More boxes!

And a tired little girl.

We're now left with boxes to sort through and put away...but the major work of moving is done. We've already enjoyed our first night in our new home. A huge THANKS, again, to you all -- for your help, prayers and encouragement! Oh, how we need the body of Christ!

Nice to know that we are not the only ones out there that use cattle trailers to move with. Who needs U-Haul?! :)

Congratulations on your new house and successful move. Yes, we need the Lord and we need each other too.

It's so nice to have the kitchen all in order, even if the rest of the house isn't quite there yet. That was a very cute tired little angel.

address is just not right!

Dan "the man" Beasley said...

WOW! Looks like it was quite the operation. Especially since you had so much time to prepare and everything!

I just moved yesterday actually. It took about two hours total. I guess I don't have quite as much stuff.

Isn't that amazing though, we're like moving buddies!

Hope you're enjoying your new house...I sure am.

God bless you guys!!!
