Well we knew this day would come and it has all too soon. We have moved. Thankfully it was only down the street. We didn't change wards or schools so pretty much the kids routines haven't been messed up to much. Since it was such a stressed thing I didn't even think of pulling the camera out to take pictures of the actual move. I felt like I was in a race though. For a couple months prior to the big move I had been packing boxes and moving them down to the new house trying to make the day of a smooth transition. I knew we would have friends helping us with the big stuff and I didn't want to keep them from their families for too long. I also didn't want to be one of those families who wasn't ready for the movers to come. So when 10 of Oscar's friends showed up and started lifting I was trying to stay two steps ahead of them packing up the remaining stuff. WOW! My parents decided to come up for the weekend and help out and I am SOOOOO thankful that they did, it would have been more difficult if they didn't. My dear friend Sara helped me out by watching my three youngest so I wouldn't have to worry about them. THANK YOU!!
So now we are officially moved OUT of the old house and slowly settling IN to the new house. We have accumulated so much stuff it's unbelievable! So I guess it's a good time to sale, donate, sale, and donate again!
The first week we had such a huge maze in the house I lost Lily a couple of times. I could hear he muffled sounds and would panic! One time she found somebody's pudding they didn't finish and thought it was a good idea to take a bath in it...
We had our first campfire too. We tried to race the the weather and the weather ended up winning so we ate our hotdogs in the garage, and then we had our smores in the house. The boys are all excited to do it again when we have nice weather.
While we were out at the fire we heard some bird noises coming out of the bushes by us. Since the weather came in the boys were checking it out the next day. They were on a mission.

May at our house FLEW by!! We have been so busy with the end of the school year stuff and preparing for a move that I haven't kept up our blog. Here are some of the things we did this month.
We got out the Dance Dance Revolution game and had some fun competing against each other. Here is Lily showing us her dance moves too.
