I don't even know where to start to catch everyone up on our crazy lives these days! Easter Sunday turned into moving day, we started loading the truck around noon and pulled out our the driveway at 2:03! Thank you so much, Kevin, Donna, Cameron, Steve, Kenneth, Violet..... and everyone else who helped us leave Lodiburg. We were showered with gifts and amazing encouragement upon our departure! No sooner did the mail box of our "old home" appear in my rear view mirror then uncontrollable weeping began to overwhelm me. Leaving those people has been one of the hardest things I have had to do in life, and we miss all of you very much!!! We drove to Norris City Illinois for the night to stay at Chris' mom's house. We had a great time of fellowship with the family! Monday morning we set out for Zeigler around 8:30 and made it to Eldorado for some good breakfast at Hardee's (where apparently the retired teachers from Rado also gather for breakfast). After getting full, we were on our way, next stop 115 S. Pine St. Zeigler Illinois. Joselyn slept the whole way there, and when we arrived people quickly started taking all our pocessions (junk) out of the UHaul and into our new home, which only took 45 minutes (not for lack of stuff, we rented the biggest UHaul they make)! And we are in!
