The night before we loaded up the moving truck, some dear friends threw us an impromptu going away party. I love these people!

Moving day(s) turned crazy. I’d rather jab a sharp stick in my eye than move long distance again. But we got through it, and all survived the somewhat rainy drive. In fact, as Kathryn (and the dogs) and I drove into North Carolina, we literally drove under the arch of a rainbow.

The dogs have adjusted better than I anticipated. The little kids are going to need more structure ASAP, which is why I’ve been so determined to get things unpacked and get the house settled.
