The kids spent a lot of time playing outside while Mike and I were packing and working on the house. They played everyday with their neighborhood friends and saying goodbye to them was the hardest part.
Our last night in Idaho was not in Rexburg, but at at hotel in Idaho Falls. With all of our beds on the moving truck there wasn’t much choice. It turned out to be fun. The hotel we randomly booked online was right across the street from the Idaho Falls falls. The kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub too.
After we left the hotel, we went back to the house and finished cleaning. That afternoon we said our final goodbyes to friends and to our house and drove to Orem, Utah to start the next chapter of our lives. Moving is hard, but we are trying to teach our kids that life is an adventure and there are new friends and new opportunities ahead. And until they make new friends, they always have each other.
