Friday, in the midst of organizing and packing, we took a break to have a “goodbye date” with Selah.

    

And then today…THE DAY.  Moving day.  We were overwhelmed with the kindness and help of family and friends.

Rainy moving day.  Our first moving truck, we discovered, leaked. Streams and lakes of water inside the truck.  We had most large pieces of furniture moved into the (leaky)truck before the executive decision that “this will not work” was make.   We called the company, requested a new truck to be delivered, waited around and then swapped furniture between trucks.

Today we also completed the adoption process with our dear friend, Sue, and her family.  They have graciously welcomed Moches into their home.  Josh and I were sad to leave her behind, relieved to know she will be well cared-for.

 

Our temporary travel companion, Huster, arrived today from Orlando, Florida today to help us pack and make the move to Colorado with us tomorrow (he’ll also travel the Pacific Northwest with us for the next 3 weeks).

Tonight we are exhausted.  We have all of our physical belongings packed into a moving truck, ready to travel across the country. We leave in the morning.  We crave your prayers.
