Another chapter

Today marks the first day on our journey into a new chapter of our lives!
We begin our cross-country move to North Carolina.
Saying our goodbyes to the Jones family
 (and our nearly three week
24-hour togetherness) was horrible.
But there was talk of perhaps an East Coast reunion in the fall,
so that was something to hold on to as we parted ways
out of their relaxing cabin.
 But today our family will begin a new life, new adventures, and new experiences.
I will pull a u-haul behind my car while Christian pulls
our cattle trailer behind his truck packed with our
  necessary things that we'll need for the next year until our home is built.
In the meantime we will rent a little home
in a great neighborhood in Chapel Hill.
And we don't have any furniture, so then there's that.
Mr. Nielson and I lay in bed after church yesterday 
with the mountain air blowing through the wide open windows.  
We went over our calendar together.  Not only is our big move
 a huge event in our lives, but June holds a very busy
 month for us as we experience youth conference, girls camp, 
scout camp in our new church ward (congregation). 
Also in June Claire is going on a service project to Samoa with HEFY.
Then there is Father's Day where we celebrate our wonderful
 father figures, and later in June Angus turns ONE 
and I turn 36, or wait, it's 37. Rats.

Can't wait to sleep in a Tulsa Best Western tonight
with five (probably) grouchy children, an exhausted husband,
and a very large dog.

Here's to the future!
