Clouds in the Johnson House

I apologize, this is gonna be kind of gross...
You know how kids like to lie in the grass and watch clouds float by declaring what they look like?  Well... Blythe likes to do that with her brother's bowel movements.  She declared the latest one to look like a crayon, and, I'm not gonna lie, she was right.  It looked just like a crayon.

In other news, we're about a month from California.  Our renters have signed the lease, we had a garage sale and donated everything that was left, we've sold or pawned off on family all the other stuff we're not taking, and this week Caleb should sign a lease for an apartment in California with the 3 finalists AKA the only ones available :)

So come June 26thish we'll be hitting the road for Cali.  That's right, we're driving to California now.  So if you know of anything fun to do along the way... giant ball of yarn, beard of bees, world's biggest thimble... you let me know.  I'm gonna want to see that.

So it begins...

That's right you are looking at packed boxes.  Today marks 2 months from California and it was also my first day of being pretty bummed about this whole adventure.

We had a great weekend in which we saw about half the people that we love.  Friday night we had dinner with our sweet friends from down the street, then Saturday morning we went to Finn's 5th birthday party.  It was a super hero olympics and Blythe had a blast.  The kids spent Saturday night with their grandparents, and then Sam and Caitlyn brought them back Sunday afternoon and stayed for dinner.  Yesterday we went to the zoo with Jillian and Isabella.  It just kind of hit me that soon all those people won't just be a phone call and a car ride away.  Plus I took everything off the walls today so it really is starting to look like we don't live here anymore.  Sad day.

On the bright side, I think we found someone to rent the house, keep Sasquatch, and move us to California!
