While we were in Utah we found a house to rent. We got approved the 15th of June and began packing right away. According to the lease requirement we had to move into the property on July 1st. We went back to Utah the 24th so we could sign the lease and get the keys since we couldn't get to the house until the evening of the 2nd. The kids were a nice help in loading up boxes. I packed up the entire house with the help of many, many sisters in my ward. I could not have gotten everything ready in time without them. I cried on several occasions because I was so grateful for their service. I will miss a few of the families in my ward very much. Specifically the Cox's, Kelly's, Bowers', and the Cummings', and the Lawrence's. Ammon really got to know the Lawrence family really well. The have boys his age, and he really misses playing sports with them. I think Zenock will miss the Kelly's the most, since their son is basically his best friend. By the time moving day came, I had counted over ten sisters who helped me pack, clean, bring dinner, and watch my kids so I could pack more.
Our last night in Henderson was at the hotel where my parents were staying because they had painters coming early in the morning. Earlier in the evening we had a huge party to say goodbye to everyone at the same time. I had 13 pounds of meat to use up so we did a nacho bar. Tons of families in the ward contributed various parts of the meal so we could all enjoy it together. Sadly, I was too distracted to get any photos of my friends.

All the kids, except Rydon, LOVED riding in the big truck with Brady. Ayla and Gideon had a very hard time taking turns. This surprised me a little because I had the movie watching in my van, but then again, big trucks are pretty fun!
