distractions

Yes, we are moving. This week. This post should probably include the hundred or so boxes, the carton of packing tape, the constant mess in every room (due to my cleaning strike until the BIG DAY). It should include as little as possible because my time is at a premium.
Going through room after room, box after box, reminds me of the little things that happen everyday that make our lives great. Here's a glimpse of our past week, ignoring the fact that we are moving and normal life just doesn't feel very normal right now.


Chris's garden is going strong with collards, peas, broccoli, spinach, lettuce...
here are some rosemary transplants soaking up the sun.

a trip to Jamestown with Marshall's class was a great distraction

and then there's Easter. one of the only sundays i was happy to have afternoon church. we finished it of with a wonderful meal at hilarie's house. the day was pretty much perfect, and i will always remember it being the calm before the (moving) storm.

Sometimes those distractions are the only things that will keep one sane!

Let me know if you need help with anything....

The garden looks (as Nicole would say) FABULOUS HUN! I'm glad you've had a chance to have some nice distractions! Moving is a lot of work, especially in such a short amount of time! (hey you could practically call me a "moving expert!lol!)
Let me know if you need anything, I make some pretty awesome from scratch brownies, (sugar to help you keep on going!) and can always pick up a favorite beverage if you need it!

Your whole family looked so stinkin' cute in your color-coordinated Easter clothes. Our pew was perfectly situated to stare at your cuteness all through sacrament meeting.

On another note, the lettuce looks mouth-watering!
