Having a place to go is home, having someone to love is family, having both is a blessing!

Final goodbyes:(

So the time came when we finally had to say goodbye and leave. It was so hard for me of course and I was crying on and off the whole time. Poor Karen was sick so I had to go and say goodbye to her at her apt and I just realized I didn't get a picture with her, but atleast I have one from the girls night out:) I had to bribe Cory to take a picture because Trent said he doesn't like his picture to be taken...it was really funny, but it turned out really cute! I will miss all of you terribly! You guys have been there for me through so much! Being able to call up any of you and ask for a missing ingredient, "hey can you monitor my kids", or just to cry or vent was so nice:) Let me tell you how NOT FUN it is taking all 5 of my kiddos to the store, especially in Wisconsin where most people only have 2-3 kids if that:) It is great to get looked at all the time, hopefully they will get used to it atleast until I feel comfortable with Alyssa staying home with the older kids! It was so nice being able to leave Alyssa home there and feel comfortable knowing that if anything happened she was surrounded by people who cared! You all are amazing, we will never forget you! We have soo many great memories to hold on to! Thank you, thank you, thank you........:) We hope someday that we will be able to see you all again when you have moved on as well! And girls, be saving up for a fun weekend together because I am going to make sure it happens in the next couple of years:) Good luck to all of you!

Ten minutes ago, Trent and I really wanted to go do something quick and our kids are sleeping and we said to each other, "if Laura were here, she would totally monitor our kids--even though it's 9:30!" So anyway, we miss you too!
