THE Move - Leonard Wood to Leavenworth!

We've been packing and wrapping for our move in just a few days. The kids are doing quite well in all the chaos but thank goodness that the Grandma and Papa back up showed up!

Cans of soda are great to play with when all of your toys are packed up....or probably even when all of your toys are still out! Ha!

Boxes also make great toys! What a cute little package!

Papa really enjoyed reading the Barbie book to the kids....I'm sure it was his first pick too!

We've been packing and moving boxes into the formal dining room so we can have most things all together to make loading a little easier.

Time to fill 'er up!

Papa and Katelyn working hard...well Papa at least!
We loaded the car, tractor mower and some furniture into the trailer on Wednesday night. Jack and I left at 0 dark 30 to head to Leavenworth on Thursday morning to meet the landlord at the house around lunchtime to sign for the house. Matt also left at 0 dark 30 to meet us at Leavenworth. He is going to help unload this load and then ride back to St. Robert with us to help with the load.
Ready to roll!
We arrived at our new house and it's going to be just fine for the next year or 2. I think we are going to enjoy our neighborhood, especially with this great little park right across the street from our house. Katelyn can look out her bedroom window and see the playground. She's going to love it!

Our new house! That 3rd car garage is going to be awesome! And mean that the Monte and MY car can fit into the garage!

They put out little flags....so patriotic!
We unloaded the first load in Leavenworth and then headed back to St. Robert to load the house.

Ugh - too much stuff!

And it's SOOOO hot :(

Jeff took on the job of bringing stuff up from the basement.

Finally! Close those suckers up! It's all in!

2 hot and tired loaders! Couldn't do it without all our family and friends helping!

The caravan is about read to head out. Jack and trailer, John and trailer and Dad/Matt are all leaving together. My mom, I and the kids are staying around to wait on the carpets to get cleaned and then someone to come check out the house and turn over the keys! Almost there!

Part of the help - John was already in his truck!

We're trying to kill some time while they are cleaning carpets. This was a tough job but Grandma did a good job!
While we were staying behind a couple hours to get the carpets cleaned and meet Katelyn's tball team for team pictures, the guys and trailers took off and headed to Leavenworth. By the time we arrived, they had most of the stuff unloaded off the trailer. Let's just say I was a bit overwhelmed. It was so hot that they  just got it all in the house and there was stuff EVERYWHERE! Look at that garage! AHHH!
Full but at least the garage door closes!

Stuff everywhere!

But even with stuff everywhere, the K-State rock was found and put into place! It is right at home being back in Kansas! And it's soooo great to see all the purple everywhere! I'm going to love this year!

All the trailers and vehicles!
Thanks to all of our great family and wonderful friends, we completed another successful DITY (Do It Yourself) move. Everyone is tired, but stuff will slowly find it's home. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
