Movin' and a Shakin'!

Lot's going on in our immediate family right now!

JUST FLAT OUT MOVIN'...
My brother and his family are leaving Charleston, SC for Houston, TX.
Hook's brother and his family are leaving Charlotte, NC for Columbus, GA.
You all are in our thoughts and prayers as you start your "new" positions and schools, make the move and make your new homes yours.  We know you will soon love your new towns and we are secretly and selfishly happy that you are both just a little bit closer to us!  Moving in the right direction! ;~)
We sure will miss visiting you guys in the Carolinas, but onto bigger and better!

MOVIN' IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
My dad has officially 1/2 retired, so he will be working one week out of the month in Houston and one week from home in Fayetteville, which leaves 2 weeks of the month for he and Mom to live the life of the "retired".

AND A BIG HAPPY 40th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY MOM & DAD!!!

MOVIN' INTO A NEW RIDE
The Harmelings officially have a new Cayman mobile thanks to the hail storm and an understanding insurance company. Same car, just a little longer, a little darker and a little newer.  The 6k estimate quickly turned into 20k and we quickly realized that we needed to get out of the white car sooner rather than later...


SHOULD BE REALLY MOVIN' ANY DAY NOW!
2 week old video.  Now officially off the bottle and off the before bedtime milk.

Thank you so much Grams and PopPop for hanging with Cayman after your trip to NYC.  She already misses you lots!  
(2) Two days* back and I think we are finally getting back in the swing of things.  Amazing how much a toddler changes in just five days!  So many new words, eating up a storm and I swear that hair grew
