We're Back! Meet us in St Louis!

 We survived!  What a move!-  the packers took two days to box up all of WHn's stuff and the loaders put it all on the van last Friday and we left Ohio at 4:15 that afternoon, arriving at our hotel in St Louis at 2:30 the next morning.  We went to Dad's new office on Saturday and then went to our new house and spent some time there!  We love the new house that Dad found for us!   The car was packed to the gills and WHN did most of the driving since Dad worked so hard for us!  He held the girls while she drove and Chip helped her drive! The basement is huge! two separate sections and a storage room!   WHN drove us to the house early MOnday, around 7 and the moving van was already here!  The driver had spent the night in the van!  He had a beautiful Australian Shepherd dog with him, and he knew all about being "owned"! The truck was unloaded by six o'clock that night and we were back at the hotel for one more night of fun and games- this was Anna Rose's and Tasha's first time in a hotel and they were good (Chip is an old pro at the travel game)  Sunday after Mass, Dad took all of us to the Arch in St Louis- it is HUGE!  Next weekend we are scoping out the BUdweiser factories for Puddles!

Whoo hoo! Your house looks great. I hope Geoff shares the other half of the basement with Agnes so she can have her sewing room in there. And you all have been sight seeing already?! Can't wait to hear more about you adventures.

Yeah, you've arrived safe and sound! That was a long drive and are happy to hear that it all went very well. Your new home is beautiful! You will make so many new memories there. It's an exciting time for one and all. We love how you already have the feeding bowls on the ground in the kitchen and blankets throughout the house for the little ones. Now the unpacking.....
