Check out these three rascals. This is Halloween a few months after we'd all moved to Toledo. Zeb is the pea pod. Cohen is the crab. Matthew is the Lion.
 And look at them now!  So crazy to see how much can change in three years.  I'm glad the three of them are still pals!  Zeb is continually stressed about leaving all of his pals in three months.  Luckily most of them are leaving too, so we just tell him that everybody is clearing out of Toledo the same time that we are.
And speaking of clearing out- we started packing this weekend.  We started with the kiddo's closets which led to playing every game before we boxed it up.
Ike doesn't really get it so he's a little concerned about the disappearance of his things.
I'm a little concerned about EVERYthing. House hunting is über stressful! especially since we're hunting for a rental!  We've found all of these fabulous places to live- but I'm sure most (if not all) will be snatched up by the time we are ready to head to Dayton! There's nothing worse than watching what you want disappear!! I keep thinking- "maybe we should buy?!" and then I realize WAIT- that's CRAZY.  We'll only be there 3 years- 4 TOPS so buying makes no sense.  So we'll just play the hunting, watching, and waiting game and hope that the perfect house pops up at the perfect time :)

That first picture is one of my favorites....it makes me laugh everytime. I am so glad that a lot of us are leaving at the same time! Thanks again for watching our kids.

Any idea where you will be headed? And when? I remember packing up last year... Time passes so quickly. I wish I was there to share this time with you guys. Good luck!

Those pics are hilarious! Those kiddos of yours are growing so fast and are just the cutest. Packing and moving are the pits, but I know you'll find the perfect place. The look on Ike's face is how I feel about emptying closets too!

Ummm... Hello leisy, Cohen is clearly a lobster! But I guess he could pass for a crab too :). It's crazy how much our kids have grown. Now what is going to be sad is when you all move and we are stuck here for one more year, who will Cohen play with?! Thanks again for watching the kiddos, it was so nice to have a quiet meal with my Mom.

Cute little kiddos! And the little lion is moving by me. Yeah!

Anyways, good luck packing and finding a rental and moving. So fun, but so stressful and crazy.

Where did you get Zeb's pjs? Love them.

Laney- yard sale!

Oh, Leisy! I'm having those same feelings. I hate the renting game. (Believe me, I've asked why we're not buying either. Boo!) I'm overstressed about finding our housing too, and the fact that NH/VT is so far away, there's not much we can do. I know that with the Match in 3 more weeks, it'll complicate the search even more.

Here's to hoping that things will work out for the best! Good luck. Enjoy your last days in Toledo.
