The day before

The past few weeks have been a little crazy- packing, cleaning, preparing and saying goodbye to Little Rock- all while learning as much as we can about Huntsville. Here is a recap of our last day in LR. 
Goodbyes....the hardest part. 
We had a goodbye party at our neighborhood park the Monday before we left. We had about 45 minutes of play and pizza until the bottom dropped out and a crazy thunderstorm caused us all to part ways much earlier than planned. And I only captured one picture of us in the van during the storm...
The storm got knocked our electricity off from 6-9pm. We knew we had movers arriving in the morning so we had to wear headlights and begin/finish the packing process with or without electricity. Always and adventure. The girls took a candlelit bath while we packed bags...and eventually had out couch looking like this-
The movers arrived in the morning and it began looking like this...
So the girls and I retreated to play at Chick Fil A, where we said goodbye to our sweet friend Ella.
Then the girls went swimming w dad...
And then we headed over to the Dooleys to have a goodbye celebration...
Words cannot say how hard it was to pull away from this street for the last time-
Then we all went to have dinner with the Dooleys,our neighbors Keith and Debbie, and Peter. That's when the tears officially started and it started feeling real.
But the night wasn't over yet- our other favorite friends the Gormans came over and spent an evening playing, and hanging out with the girls.
We said our goodbye once again, tucked the girls into their beds for the last time in LR and stayed up until the wee hours of the night prepping for the big day.
