Insta-Friday {The Move}

Last weekend we skipped church and instead took a picnic to Mohican State Park. The weather was beautiful and our only complaint was a few mosquitoes. Ok, I was also annoyed that the humidity made my cute hair go flat. Oh well! We had fun and wore out the boys who napped on the way home.

Wipeout! #whichoneisfaking

The rest of the week was based on moving. Boxes and boxes, load after load. The boys helped by doing this:

Little boy powwow. #theydidntknowiwaswatching #innocentchildhood #iwonderwhattheytalkabout

Here we go again.

Work break. #movingstinks #movingtruck #littlehelpers

We donated tons of stuff to the local church's thrift store. It felt good to be packing so much less stuff! I'm hoping to post more about this in the future. Living lighter is good!

Saying goodbye isn't fun. Especially when the goodbye comes sooner than you expected. We are happy with the prospects for our future and know we'll thrive where God wants us. We're just still adjusting to our quick move! There will definitely be more on this subject in the future as well!

Goodbye Mt. Vernon

Goodbye Ohio

Pretty sunset somewhere in Illinois.
 We are staying with Gary's parents for the weekend. It's Helen's birthday and we could use some downtime for a few days! We're finishing our trip on Sunday and plan to find a place in our new city and be somewhat settled by next weekend. We'll see how that goes!

For now, the boys are loving the sandpile and having their dog around!

Boys + dirt + dog = Paradise

The boys helped Grandma pick these yummy veggies from the garden. They ate tons of tomatoes!
There were enough green beans to can them! Nothing is better than garden fresh produce in the winter.

Which one of these jars is not like the other?
Meanwhile, Gary built a hammock! It's made out of a canvas dropcloth and rope. We're seriously going to try sleeping in hammocks instead of a bed.
Oh nothing, just making a hammock. What does your husband do for fun? #hammock #hobby

So that was our week! We're still in flux, but we've made some big decisions and we're optimistic for the future!

Thanks for following along! If you want to follow me on Instagram, I'm gibsongirl726!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Ellie- I have missed being here for a while. Where are you going? I hope that this is something you really want to do. Are you still headed overseas eventually? Enjoy the time at your in-laws. Blessings- xo Diana
