We are here in Colorado and settling in. It is so lovely to be reunited with Todd. Absence truly does make the heart grow fonder and I'm pretty much head over heels in love with my husband. I'm missing Norfolk somthin' turrible but, in the same breath, it is sooo nice to be finished with the packing up and the unpacking. Although I must say I did have an immense amount of help with the packing. For example, this guy pretty much single handedly packed up my books:

Todd flew to Norfolk and we drove across the country Memorial Day weekend. Some dear friends made the boys a goody bag for the trip and it was seriously a lifesaver. We got them to behave for a full six hour stretch just on the promise of a blue ring pop at the end:

Here are our little troopers taking a 30 minute leg stretch at a rest area in Kansas:

The highlight of our last day of driving? Getting a whole dollar to buy anything they wanted from the vending machine. Oh, the AGONY of choosing!

All three older boys were instrumental in keeping Baby Jude happy through the long hours, but this boy here was the absolute champion at it:
