Does anyone know how much fun it is to move? If you could actually see my face, you would see that I was beyond sarcastic when I said that. We have practically moved everything except a couple odds and ends, which we will pick up over the next couple weeks while we travel across town to take Ally and Bran to school. Thank goodness school is only for a couple more weeks. That is a hike back and forth.
A few of us guys took two full days to load and unload the 26 footer Uhaul while Aimee packed a sea of un-ending boxes. You never know how much crap you have until you move. Ya know? It is crazy the amount of junk we tossed, let alone the amount that we still held on to. Thankfully, the rain came light which cooled the air a bit. We only soaked through a couple shirts. Yummy!
Brandon and Allyson seem to love the new place. We took advantage of the horrible market as the market took advantage of us. We found a nice rental home, well outside the city limits, allowing us to still maintain a normalcy we hoped for. Allyson was afraid that she was going to have to share a room with her brother, which isn't such a good thing since she is about to hit "that" stage. I guess turning this blog in to a diary of a Dad who is dealing with children facing puberty would be pretty funny, what do you think? lol Ouch, do I have to????
Quickly jumping to a new topic...THANK YOU ALL for pitching in to help us financially. It has allowed us to focus on our family and get back on our feet. Aimee and I feel as if God has given us something here that can do so much for so many, so we don't want to waste a single second. We have been praying and searching for a way to continue Kayleigh's legacy and help others out there full time. Whether we worked for March of Dimes, The Children's Miracle Network or build an organization of our own, we have no idea. Our brains are fried, but we would like to hear some of your ideas and maybe we could all build something together as a team.
Either way, I want to reach out to those who have given us so much strength this past year. Every single one of you have given us ideas, thoughts, questions, concerns when it came to Kayleigh's best interest, so I know we could all spark some great ideas here. The last thing we want to do is do the wrong thing and find ourselves in deep water. We love every single one of you for the support you have given us and I know we can continue to work together for a common good, in honor of Kayleigh.
So, let's start this journey off, not as a "OH Woe Me" for having lost a beautiful child, but "Praise you Lord" for Kayleigh, now show me what we can do with what you gave us so that we can honor you.
