Busy times

First, thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers at the passing of my granddad. The services were very nice and many people have been touched by his life. He was my last grandparent living. I feel so lucky to have had 4 amazing grandparents.
We came home and got busy getting ready to move. Our house is officially sold, yea! We closed on Tuesday morning. It was a great feeling knowing that a new family will get to enjoy the house. They were very nice. I treated myself to a pedicure and lunch with Karen to celebrate. I gave a TAKS test at summer school on Wednesday morning, tons of fun.
In the midst of moving we also had adoption stuff due. The US side of the adoption has papers that expire every 18 months so some things needed to be updated like our birth certificates. You never know it might have changed in 18 months (ugh!). Karen came over and we finished packing the guest rooms.
Today was a big packing day. We got all the china packed up and some of the kitchen. I thought we would have plenty of boxes but now I think we might have to go buy some more. It's amazing how much there is to pack. Steve has tomorrow off and we have a full day planned including my nephew's 12th birthday. I can't believe that in less than a week we will be in our new house, wow!
The pictures show some of the boxes we have packed and then more left to pack (there are more in the garage, we're not that ready :). Since Steve has been working and Karen has been nice enough to come over. We have enjoyed watching some fun movies while packing. It makes the time a bit more fun.

Good luck with the packing and the move! I know how stressful and tiring a move can be.
