Status Update

Status Update: I'm extremely tired & emotional right now.

Moving makes me tired & emotional.

I'm thinking moving is one of those things, like childbirth & marathons... you forget the misery until you are in the throes of it.

So here's the scoop: We sold our Herriman home and are supposed to be out by tomorrow. Needless to say, we've been busy. Where are we moving to? Would you believe a 7000 sq foot home in Park City? ...No? Me neither.
Actually, my wonderful generous parents have opened their home to us & have been so sweet in making this transition easier for us. (THANK YOU MOM & DAD)
So - where do we go from here? Well, we're not quite sure on that one. You can bet it's been a matter of prayer for us. Build in Heber/Midway? Buy? or... maybe the Lord has a different adventure for us. We shall see. But we have felt so blessed along the way - and we feel peace that this is what the Lord wants us to do at this time in our lives.

I am excited because we are moving. We always knew that Herriman wasn't our permanent home & I'm excited to be moving on.
And I'm really sad because, well... we're moving. I didn't think I would be this sad. But as I've packed up our home, I realize how much I'm going to miss this place. If the walls could talk, they would tell you all about our lives - about the laughter shared, the tears shed, the dancing, the eating, the running, the playing, the cuddling, the LOVING. We have spent 3 and a half years here. 2 daughters have been brought home or BORN here. I stand on our back deck & look in every direction & see homes filled with people that I have grown to love. I truly, truly LOVE my neighbors.

Speaking of neighbors, I am so thankful for both the neighbors, family & friends who have watched our children as we've packed & for the neighbors who came last Saturday to help us move all our crap , junk valuable items to an enormous storage unit. Seriously, people! What happened to the days when you could fit all your earthly belongings in a covered wagon? What happened to the days when kids only had one toy - like a wooden train or a doll that entertained them for days on end?
Sorry! got sidetracked. Truly, though, you guys were LIVESAVERS! Thank you!

So, farewell Herriman chapter of our lives. You will be fondly remembered. Farewell neighbors - you will be sorely missed. I am so thankful for this electronic age when we can stay in touch so easily. And don't be surprised if I contact you for playdates! As MUCH as I love my folks, it will be nice to get out of the house once in a while :)

Heidi, you and your darling family will be sorely missed. You are such an amazing woman/wife/mother/friend. Every time I see you you are smiling and happy. What awesome qualities! I know that I will miss seeing you darling family every week in church. And my kids will miss you in primary. You've done such a good job in there. Be sure to stay in touch, I'll keep up to date on your blog. :)

Congratulations on saling your home. I am sorry I did not do a better job of getting together while you were so close. I will try to do better. Good luck on your new adventure, I wish you the very best.

We are so happy that you are blessed to sell your home & continue on the path you need to follow but, sad for ourselves that we won't be able to call up for a quick playdate! We loved doing the preschool with McKinley & we think you guys are an awesome family. Wishing you the best of luck & we are counting on staying in touch via the blog & of course a Christmas card is always nice :) Sorry we didn't realize you were moving so quickly or we would have helped out too!!!
