Josh and I made our last 6-hour trek to my parent's house in Atlanta this past weekend. Since we are moving to Texas (13 hour drive back to Atlanta), we will not be actually driving back and forth. It was bitter sweet, because as we hate being in the car that long and enjoy flying much better, but our dog, Chevy, and my parent's dog, Jackson, will no longer get to play with one another (my parents won't be making the 13 hour drive either-they prefer to fly as well). These dogs love to play, Chevy more than Jackson as he is about 7 years younger. The whole time we are visiting at my parent's house, the dogs play and play and play! It was sad watching them this time knowing that it was their last time getting to rough-house with each other.

The reason we had to make one last trip is because my mom insisted I take my teaching supplies and books that I had kept in her garage since my last year teaching at Riverside Elementary before I moved to Florida. I had to organize TONS of materials, books, and art supplies into bins to be moved to our new house in Texas (even though I most likely won't teach again until our youngest is in Elementary School). But, I'm going to use a lot of the art supplies and books for Lila and the others to come until I go back to teaching, so it won't all just sit in the garage!
Saturday morning, my mom, Lila, and I went to my cousin, Katie's graduation from Wesleyan High School. It was so much fun getting to see my aunt and uncle, Scott and Stacey, and my cousins, Katie and Wesley, as well as my grandparents, Pop and Nana...even though I'm pretty sure they were more excited to see Lila than me, but I'm okay with that!

While I was in the garage packing, Josh's parents as well as his sister, her husband, and little boy came over to visit. I'm sad I missed watching the baby cousins play together outside, but I'm surprised I was able to pack all of my things in one afternoon! That evening, we all went up to the Riverclub Clubhouse to eat dinner on the screened in porch. It was such a nice night, and the food was so good!
Josh only has 4 more workdays left at Coast Guard Station Destin! So crazy!!! I will miss the beaches here, but I CAN'T WAIT to be in Texas!!!
