Day 30: Traveling in a U-Haul Truck
My oldest son, Eli is turning 24 in about a half an hour. He and his wife, Sarah, are finally moving out into the world on their own.
So far, they've lived in our basement, temporary base housing in Fort Lee, Virginia, in the barracks at Fort Hunter-Liggit, California (just Eli - Sarah stayed with us during this time), and with his cousin in Savanna, Texas. Now they are going to move into their very own apartment in Plano, Texas. They are both excited and terrified.
They came home this past weekend and boxed up all their stuff that's been sitting in our basement for the past couple of years. Its all now sitting in the garage where my husband's truck normally sits. Tomorrow, we'll load it all up on a U-Haul truck and Saturday we'll drive it down to them.
We'll meet them at their new place. Their new lease starts on April 1. We'll be their first guests. It'll be a long day in a U-Haul truck, but worth it to help send our children into adulthood.
