Re-cap Part 4: Last Days in Cleveland

Once we got back from Palmyra we had 3 days to pack and clean our apartment.

Things were a little crazy...

But we managed to see our friends a few more times before taking off.  This is my best Cleveland buddy Jen.  Love and miss you TONS Jen : )
Moving Day:  I had to get one last picture of the kids in our apartment in Cleveland.  They were chowing down on their donut breakfast before we took off Monday morning (Memorial Day).  We had (miraculously) succeeded in getting Noah excited about the move to Rochester.  He even said the prayer before we left the house that morning [thank you for the moving truck, thank you that we could move to Rochester, thank you for Sam and Sarah (the only kids he knew in Rochester at that point) thank you for their bounce house].  After his prayer I told him it was time to go and...he broke down.  "But I don't want to go!  I never want to leave!  I want to live here forever!!!"  I'd been feeling ready and excited about the move but I admit it was hard for me to pull myself together at that moment.  It's like the end of an era!  (For all you Friends lovers out there...Debbie)
To all our Cleveland friends - we miss you!!!

I love the updates and pictures! I felt so proud of Paul when you mentioned how few people graduate married with children, truly what an accomplishment! You guys are amazing and we miss you a ton! Thank goodness for blogs! I am crazy busy but I needed a little encouragement from someone who recently moved so I took a short break to read your blog, totally worth the time! I hope things are still going well!

I am so happy and sad for you and happy but still a little sad! It is so hard to say goodbye to such good friends and a whole chapter of life! But so exciting to move onto such wonderful things... I feel for you! And seriously, Summer, your hair looks so good!
