Moving Day For My Sister

Well, I had definitely planned on having at least one vacation post up by now, but obviously things haven't worked that way for me.  Tuesday and Wednesday our internet connection was awful.  It was in and out all day long.  I tried doing some stuff online, but was quickly too frustrated to finish.  The good thing?  I got some stuff done around my house that I've been needing to do, but kept putting off. :)

Yesterday I spent the day helping my sister move.  She has been looking for a place of her own for a while, but rentals are really expensive around here right now.  She found an affordable one bedroom house in the town that Elliott goes to school in (which is also the town where her primary job is), so we got her most of the way moved yesterday.  The location seems decent, and she really has a lot of room, considering it's a one bedroom.  The bedroom is kind of small, but she has a large kitchen, a large laundry room, and an area when you walk in the front door that is big enough for a decent size office.

Elliott was sad that she was moving at first, but then he decided he liked her new house.  He even spent the night there with her last night "just in case she got scared."  Haha.  He has already informed us that he will be spending the night with her once a week, so he can sleep a little later in the morning, since she's right down the road from his school. :)

How nice your sister found a good place to stay and that Elliott likes it there! Fun that she will let him sleep over on school nights too. What a cool auntie she is!

Congrats to your sister!

And I hate days when the Internet is in and out!!

Elliott definitely has his aunt wrapped around his finger. She moved 1100 miles just to be close to him, after all. She lived with us for a year and a half, and even shared a room with him for a few months, while we were remodeling.
