Arkansas Residents

Earlier this month we made the BIG move to Arkansas. It was a bitter sweet celebration. We were sad to leave our family and friends. We were sad to leave our church. And we were sad to leave the place where Phil and I met and started a family together. BUT we were very excited and anxious to start our new life in a new state. We left VA on Tuesday June 9th. I was blessed to have my (big) little brother fly down for ATL to help me with the drive. We drove all day Tuesday and arrived in Atlanta around 6pm that night. We stayed in Atlanta for the remainder of the week. Phil stayed back in VA to finish packing up the truck.....which turned out to be a BIG task in itself. Phil finally got the truck packed up and arrived in GA on Friday evening. We stayed in GA for the rest of the weekend. It was nice to stay and visit with my parents and with my little bro and sis :o) Ace and Aidan really enjoyed spending time with Paw Paw. We left for our new home on Sunday morning. It was sad to say goodbye to my parents, but again we were very excited. Along the way to Arkansas we stopped in Memphis TN, for some good ol BBQ. We stopped at Leonards BBQ (which has been on Dives, Diners, and Drive Ins) and boy was that some GOOD food :o) We got back on the road, and arrived in Hot Springs around 9pm. We spent the night at my older sister's house, and woke up early to start with the unpacking process. Now that was almost 2 weeks ago and we still have a few boxes to unpack, BUT for the most part we are all settled in :o) Ace loves his room, and loves that everything is on one level. I must say I just love our house. I love our BIG bathroom with the his and her sinks, I love the walk in shower, I love the walk in closet, I love that both boys have their own room, I love that everything is on one level, and I love that I am 7 houses down from my sister and her family. We have had a GREAT time so far. The view and the scenery here is just BEAUTIFUL, and I must say that everyone is so laid back and friendly. We are very pleased with our decision to make this move :o) Thank you to everyone who helped us during this big transition.
