North to Alaska

Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t written anything in a month.  Admittedly, I have been a little busy.  Most of you know the reason, but in case you haven’t heard:  We’re moving to Alaska!!!

What have I been doing, instead of blogging?  A quick run down:

Packing - The moving truck comes in just over 5 weeks.  We’re on box 76.
Making an offer on a house in Anchorage.  We are in contract to close at the end of May.
Signing and scanning a lot of paperwork
My mom came to visit and help with the kiddos
Shipped Birdie (the dog) to Alaska with my mom.
Hired a contractor to fix up the Atlanta house.  The crew starts next week.
Met with local realtor (a neighbor and friend)
Started taking Benton to speech therapy (that darn frenulum)
Continuing classes with the boys (3 more weeks)
Watching Linnea change and grow and MOVE everywhere (crawling, pulling up, cruising)
Driving loads of unwanted items to Good Will
Still wishing we had less stuff
Trying to exercise and get enough sleep

I am so excited to be heading back.  We should be there before June 21st, which will be our 7th Anniversary, and is Summer Solstice, of course.  Also, Dan will be from working at home, which will mean a lot more family time for us. Yea!

We are shipping everything and flying up about a week or so after the truck leaves with all our stuff.  It will give us a little time to try up loose ends and make sure the house is ready to go on the market here.

By the way, do you know anyone who wants to buy a cute house in Atlanta?

See you soon, my Alaska friends.  And the rest of you can start scheduling your visit.  Our new house has a guest room!
