I had originally started this post while driving to Georgia. Since we didn't get internet back until recently, I was unable to post it until now.
We are past half way now on our move to Georgia. We knew it was going to be a long drive when Gabby asked, "Are we close to our new house?" and we weren't even out of Sacramento yet. For the most part though, the kids have been troupers. We got a chance to stop and see a friend in Tucson, even if just for a few minutes. It was so good to see her. We are staying in a hotel room tonight in Abilene TX as Jim and I are too tired to drive any further and there are thunderstorms just ahead of us.
Just this morning we saw wild horses which was an amazing sight. The desserts of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas became very monotonous and we are looking forward to the "greener pastures" of the east. Cameron cannot take much more in the car and Gabby's hips just will not allow her to sit for longer. We will drive all the way through to the new house for our next leg of the trip so tomorrow we will finish going through Texas, then through Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama to our little home on the northeast side of Georgia. Then for a few days of camping while we wait for the water to be turned on.
Honestly, I couldn't have made this move without the help of a dear friend. She has been there to support us emotionally and now to clean the house for us. There is the saying that you can't pick your family, but in this instance I was lucky enough to do just that and have a sister by choice. Thank you Erin from the bottom of my heart.
