One might think that a “moving out” post would be one and the same as a “moving in” post. But in our case you’d be wrong. We were a little off on how long our renovation would take, so we gave our 60 days notice on when we’d be out. In theory we could have had until the end of September, but since we had a vacation planned for the last half of September, we moved in the middle of the month! Luckily everything worked out pretty well… God’s always protecting us every step of the way. Since we didn’t have renovations in the basement we were able to store almost everything downstairs. And my grandparents graciously opened their home to let us stay with them for a couple of months. These are a few pictures from our moving out –> our stay with my grandparents.

We gradually moved our stuff over, one carload at a time, organizing as we went
I had lots of help towards the end!
total confidence they’ll be able to put that back together….
my parents had some extra gym mats they gave us – the perfect size for our space! Now to get our stuff set back up…
The few really big items that couldn’t go downstairs were stored in my parents horse trailer
We all shared a single bedroom at my grandparents to make it less stressful on the girls. This sweetie was pretty relaxed while I unpacked
The girls didn’t mind that our room had direct access to the swing set

When I put these pants on, little girl thought they were hers and got upset. So we matched for a day to convince her otherwise

The only downside to staying at my grandparents, was some pretty rough nights. Sleeping schedules went out the window!
Another perk of staying with my grandparents, is that I had a lot more time to keep working on our house. It was a little hectic towards the end, but we got ‘er done!
