Another Move

September 23rd 2009

This morning I called the movers and set up the official move to our new house!  On October 21st we will complete the process of buying our first home, and then on October 26th the movers will come pack, move, and unpack our things!  I sit here contemplating the fact that since June of 2006 this will be the 5th time I have moved.  I am beginning to understand how my husband felt as a child growing up as a missionary kid, though his moves didn’t usually involve floods.

The last two times we moved were earlier this year when we had our flood and we had to move out of apartment for several weeks.  Then at the end of the clean up process we simply moved back into it.  Those were move numbers 3 and 4, and I still have boxes left unpacked from move number 4.  This move is for a much more exciting reason!  Buying our first house is a dream come true.  I told my husband sometime during this process “thank you for making my dream come true” and he looked at me and he said “the second one” pointing toward our son.  I call them dreams because there were times in my life I didn’t think either of those two things would be possible, now I will have both.  When my son was born my first dream became real, and now my second is becoming real.

Though it means I have to move for the 5th time in just over 3 years, the feeling of having ones dream fulfilled is amazing.  This dream is a dream for someone else, which makes it even better.  You see, this dream is a dream that my son would have a backyard!  With a house comes a backyard-so dream fulfilled.  When we went to look at the house he cared more about the backyard than where his room might be, and that tells me he is getting something he has dreamed about too.  So to fulfill this dream, on October 26th we will undertake our 5th move since June 2006.
