Sum It Up Sunday

Sharing is caring!

This sum it up Sunday is short and bittersweet: ?moving day.


I don’t do well with goodbyes. ?In fact, I avoid them after a lifetime of saying them. ?We moved for my father’s career every 2-4 years and then I became a military wife. ?I’ve said goodbye a lot.
You’d think I’d be an expert after so much repetition. ?Yet, I suck at it. ?But here’s a bit of what’s on my mind this morning.
To the preschool that I’ve loved so very much ?for the past 8 years: thank you for caring for and shaping my babies into the Jesus loving little people they are.
To my neighbors: sorry about the dogs but thanks for your patience. The street will probably be a lot quieter without the Shenanigans children running around!
To the elementary school and all the teachers: ?y’all are awesome. ?Mostly. ?We only had one teacher we didn’t care for in 6 years- that’s a pretty good record for 3 kids! ?I was not exactly upset when school was cancelled on Friday as this allowed me to skip the sadness of withdrawing my kids in person. ?Ps- I left you a voicemail.
To the coaches and scout leaders we leave behind: I wish you many goals, touchdowns, and merit badges. ?And some stiff margaritas since you deal with the parents as well as the kids!
To the future preschool, neighbors, elementary school, coaches and scout leaders: You have big shoes to fill.
See y’all in Arizona. ?Do they say y’all in Arizona?

Goodbyes are always hard, but I bet you will settle in great when you get to Arizona. I've moved around a lot during my lifetime too (my dad was in the Navy), so I know that it is tough, BUT it makes it so easy to meet lots of new friends! Good luck with the move!

Safe travels to your new home! Goodbyes are always difficult but thankfully with the world we live in today it is easy to always keep in touch with everyone we left behind!
