you know how whenever you go on a long vacation towards the end of it you get all frantic like you have not done all that you wanted to and then you go a little crazy trying to visit people or see/do things that you wanted to? that is what the last week has been like and the next 3 weeks will continue to be like.
yep, gonna miss this place.
we are moving back to hawaii. have i mentioned that? luke is wrapping up all his studies and we are moving back on december 12th. that's 3 weeks away. it's coming up fast. our truck is now on a boat to go back across the pacific. our house is a disaster area and we are trying to decide what to give away and what we can fit in our suitcases. 6 suitcases limits what you bring with you, but that didn't stop me from getting a new sewing machine last week (thanks so much mom!) that will be a pain in the butt carry on, but will be worth it.
and of course, we have been having so much fun with friends and family. i think leaving everyone here is the hardest thing to think about when i think about moving. don't get me wrong, i am super excited to get back to hawaii- we surfed junky cold waves on friday and all i could think about was chun's. even turtle bay sounded divine. and i can't wait to play with family and friends there. but i have so much family and so many friends here that i love so much. my heart literally hurts when i think about not being able to hang with my homegirl heluim, drive down to laguna or dana point to see my grandmas, watch velzy and ivy pick my sisters room apart and listen to them talk or go to kick boxing with her, hear my dad come home to his buddies, see velzy and ivy run to give my mom hugs when we visit there, game nights at my parents in which everyone gets obnoxious and i can't stop laughing, to see brock and the girls snuggle on the couch and watch tv together.... the list goes on and on... there is a lot to miss.
anyways, where was i going with this post? can't remember. i think i was going to talk about the fun week we had. my mom took velzy on a date to disneyland on monday and spoiled her, it sounded like they had a ton of fun. ivy and i went to laguna to play with my grandma. it was amazing how different she is when she does not have a big sister (competition) around. she was so fun, so grown up- not one whine came out of her mouth, it was amazing.
we played with the blacks on tuesday- when i walked in the door kardiff ran up to me and said "i marry ivy!" it was soooo funny. the day ended with three little girls running in circles yelling "naked party!"
