|Turning left from the entrance way is the formal living room and formal dining room|
|Walking straight from the entrance way are french doors going into the family room (entry to breakfast nook/ kitchen on left then door to backyard in center)|
|Standing in breakfast nook, facing front of house, is the kitchen and, through the door, the formal dining room|
Then we turned around to be in the breakfast nook, which looks out on the backyard, and saw the sparkling blue pool!
|Back of the house and the pool|

|The boys got ready a lot quicker than the rest of us and tried out the hot tub (spying on them from mom and dad's room)|
He explained that while the food isn't the most amazing, it's the environment and the people that really make it what it is.
|So ready to eat and sleep!|
|I think we look more awake then the boys did|
The next morning, Saturday, we were all up and ready for the movers to arrive. We quickly learned that you don't realize how much stuff you won until you have to unpack it all. We had a lot of fun finding spots for everything but it was exhausting. Halfway through the day I took a short break to take pictures of our progress.

|Kitchen stuff was some of the first off the moving truck|
|Not too much in the family room yet|
|Blake was the first to get stuff for his room|
Sunday was almost exactly the same. We finally got to sleep in but once up we worked hard all day. At one point while I was walking through to put a box away, I found this.

Now today is Monday and I am writing this in the Detroit airport (my connecting flight is delayed so I had enough time to hop on my laptop). Everything seems to be going by so quickly that being gone has fully hit me. Tears were of course shed but I expect many more in the near future. I love my family with my whole being and will miss them dearly. I'll miss seeing my siblings grow up, playing their sports, hanging out with friends, and goofing off. I'll miss having coffee with my mom in the morning. I'll miss the long debates my father and I have (even when they get a little heated). I know that it isn't goodbye forever and we're already making plans for the holidays. It's just goodbye for now; see you soon. I love you family! I always have and I always will. Now, I have to be off onto my flight, headed back to Portland. Until next time, readers, live long and prosper!
