A life of boxes-The Countdown to Australia


Ah, finally a moment to procrastinate completing report cards catch up with my friends. It's getting busy here. Boxes are everywhere in my life! I'm moving out of my house, out of my classroom, and trying to help my church make the big move to our new location too, when I can. (It's not easy moving a church of 1,000 people!) I have boxes in my house, my parents house, my car, my classroom. Shoo, they are taking over.

I don't think I got to tell you all the big new!  I SOLD MY HOUSE!! I knew it would happen, but how it happen was just another one of Gods ways of confirming that this move to Australia is exactly what He has for me. I sold my house to a friend of mine actually. She is around the same age as I was when I bought this house myself. She is a first time home buyer and single just like I was. I love that everything this house has been to me, it gets to be for my friend. As if that is not enough, I close one week after I finish work. That means I have an entire week to pack up the house, and I don't have to worry about that long commute to work from my parents house. (My commute would have went from 15 minutes to 45minutes) I will also move home with just three weeks left before I take off to Australia. This is a perfect amount of time to be able to spend time with Mom and Dad without being so long that we get use to being around each other, making it harder when we aren't in the same town continent.

I also just finished what may be my last week of lesson plans ever! I almost got teary eyed hitting the save button on them and I don't even know why. Lesson plans take me forever and are not one of my favorite parts of the job. I don't think I realized it earlier, but God made this year a tougher one which makes stepping away a bit easier. Don't get me wrong, I will miss the students and I will really miss the girls on my kindergarten team, but He has just been preparing my heart for a new season, and I am ready.

The countdown is officially at one month and 7 days. Wow, that's soon, huh? Didn't I just tell you last week I was moving? Packing up the house has caused me to have a few meltdowns. Up until now I feel like I've only had to talk about the things I would be giving up and leaving behind, but now I am actually having to do it. You may have seen my tweet a few weeks ago, but the first two boxes I packed I unpacked them both immediately because it mad me so emotional. I've gotten a lot better, and I certainly don't cry with every box anymore but the reality is becoming clearer and clearer. However, it does make it easier when you know you are in the center of God's will.

So, yea, that is life in nut shell moving box these days.
