Week 18: Thankful

So much to be grateful for.

My family...no doubt about it, nothing would mean anything without them. Chris is my best friend and together we've created such a beautiful life. Our girls are the best blessing we could ever hope for. We wish for their continued health and happiness in the coming years.

My job...I don't even think of it as a job. It's just part of who I am and what I do. I am SO thankful for the children I get to spend time with everyday. I love Kindergarten so much I wish I could marry it. I'm grateful that my work is so rewarding and fulfilling; I couldn't imagine doing anything else.

My home...we're moving in less than a week. It's going to be very difficult to leave the place we've called home the last 9 years. It's the only home our girls have ever known. It's been the place for the best memories I have. I am beyond thankful to have made this place a wonderful home as we started our family. Now we're moving on to another home. I am grateful to Chris for working so hard in his career to afford us this opportunity. We've built our dream home and we get to raise our three incredible girls there.

House updates: Grandpa has been working hard all week! I'm happy to report that the new door color is EXACTLY what we were envisioning and we are completely in love with it!

Chris has been off since Tuesday and he was dying to see it all in person. So on Thanksgiving morning we took the girls. They loved seeing their painted bedrooms- they were over the moon with excitement. I really love the gray we picked for the walls and the way it looks with the kitchen and front door.

Chris will do the final walk through on Monday morning and then I'll meet him for closing in the afternoon. On Tuesday all the new furniture we ordered will get delivered (fingers crossed!) The movers come on Wednesday, so when the girls and I leave for school it will be our last time in the house :( I took off Thursday and Friday so I can unpack while the girls are gone. I can't believe it's finally moving week! We've been busy packing the past few days. It's a lot of work and takes more time than I realized. Luckily the girls have been so good about staying entertained while we're busy. Audrey & Abigail play for hours on end (they are best buds!) and Anne is happy to play with or without them, lol. Speaking of Anne, she now goes pee on the potty! She skipped the froggy potty and training seat. Her face is priceless when she goes- she's sooo proud of herself!

This next week is going to be exciting and exhausting. Hoping for a smooth-as-possible transition!
