Well behaved children

I am thankful for my well behaved children. Today was a chaotic day - the day before we leave for Florida. I ran last minute errands before getting the kids from school. We got the moving trucks and - with the help of a few people - loaded up almost all of our things. I actually drove a moving truck (twice) and it was surprising fun. I didn't hit anyone and I managed to stay in my own lane for most of the time. This evening while the men were loading the truck, I took my 3 children to Las Piramides for dinner. They were so well behaved, it was marvelous. They ate their food, stayed in their seats, and were downright pleasant company. I am thankful that for during such a stressful time, my children (at least) have it together. Please pray that we'll get everything loaded up tomorrow and leave at a decent (by noon) time.

Good luck with the move, my friend! I don't envy you one bit, especially after having recently done it myself. Hang in there and enjoy the journey. May you be blessed with pleasant weather and pleasant children along your way.

Did you ever find a new renter for your house? How long are you expecting to be stationed in Florida?
